• Instead of considering immediate needs, identify higher-order needs as they will always be relevant and lead to more comprehensive solutions.
  • Devise a description of the world the team wants to create, rather than creating a financially oriented five-year plan.
  • Align action with intention. Run a collaborative design sprint with key stakeholders. Instead of using the sprint to create new products or features, use it to arrive at new futures.
  • Build a shared mission.

The 3 Components of Intrinsic Motivation
  • Autonomy: this is the desire to direct our own lives
  • Mastery: this is the impulse to get better and better at something that matters
  • Purpose: this is the longing to do what we do in the service of something larger than ourselves.

  • Consider the Person: think about their strengths and weaknesses and personal style. Think about how they act and the kinds of assignments they’ve handled.
  • Consider the Situation: Ask yourself whether the assignment might be dangerous for your team member, the company, or others.
  • Consider the Work: Make sure your team member has all the resources he or she needs to get the job done.

Negative feedback given to leaders is often about style and not about their skills or expertise. Negative feedback can then feel like a threat to their ability.

However, if they rationalize their behaviour and think their style is unchangeable, it may eventually lead to their undoing.
