Mistakes Managers Make During Tough Economic Times

  Posted by Dr. Holly Latty-Mann on March 10th, 2009    No Comments

Tunnel Vision- “What worked before will work again.”

Why: Often managers are jinxed by their own experience bias.  Seasoned managers with previous experience  in surviving recessionary conditions are likely to follow “what worked before.”  This is a common mistake and it is important for managers to understand that each recessionary environment is not the same, and thus demands unique managerial decision making.  Approaching other managers and  employees in the organization is a good way to generate cost saving ideas and coordinated leaner operations.

Beware Inaction: Another common managerial mistake, in additiona to a bias for repeating the past is simply doing nothing.  Inaction is a very dangerous road for managers and can result in increase employee anxiety, loss of direction and declining morale.  Filing to respond to changes in the business environment is not the measure of an effective manager.  Economic changes present a perfect ociasion to re-examine and revisit existing policies and procedures and look for opportunities to improve processes and save money.

The Biology of Belief

  Posted by Dr. Holly Latty-Mann on March 4th, 2009    1 Comment

Your reality if a function of your beliefs.  You create your life according to the program (beliefs) in your mind, both conscious and unscious.  Some of these “programs” are negative and self-sabotaging and operate automatically to interfere with the happiness and success you seek to create in your life.  You cannot control that of which you are unaware.  The crux of this leadership workshop is to bring those negative “programs” into awareness and under your control.

Your Mind– Your mind is a marvelous bio-computer, into which thousands of tapes, programs, and beliefs about life, leadership, love, and survival are programmed.  You must first identify which viruses are in your bio-computer before you can eradicate them.

Your Body– How well you use your body, your health, and your energy determines the degree to which people respond positively to your “delivery system.”  You must identify 1) what people are reading as negative in your body language, 2) and where you house stressors in your body, and what to do about both.

Your Emotions– Learn what is considered optimal use of emotion as well as how to control negative emotions such as anger.  You need to idetify what it is that your anger is covering up in order to identify the triggers an manage the emotions.

Join us at The Leadership Trust® to learn more about how to bring all of these elements into a harmonious relationship using your mind, body, emotion, and spirit.
