Kick The Attitude | No BS Management Advice


Some people have a ridiculous idea of what goes into being an effective manager . . . and their behavior drives people right out the door.

Summary

Now, I thought I would do a video with a provocative title-- "Kick the Attitude" and for those of you who manage or run organizations, attitude can be your biggest problem with your leadership. Let me explain.
if you've never seen the movie, "Glengarry Glen Ross," Alec Baldwin, when he was much younger, steps into a sales office and he's there to shake things up. He's been sent by headquarters so this underperforming office in Queens. Now, there's a lot of reasons that its underperforming I won't go into. I'll just simply say that he walks in as the authority with an attitude and the first thing he announces is "forget the coffee; coffee is for closers." You guys aren't closers. No coffee for you.
Then, he progresses to running a contest. First prize in the contest is a Cadillac. Hey, everyone's excited. Second prize, a set of steak knives. Okay, we get the message here. Second place is nowhere.
Now I know I worked in an office where the owner set up these combative situations time and time again. He created unnecessary pressure on the staff. Now, you may say, "hey, you're a recruiter. You did sales. You should be used to this kind of thing." But I've gotta tell you, I'm driven and I didn't need the extra laid on top of me because I give myself enough of an impetus because I want to get results. I drive myself and this kind of behavior is for people who don't care and why were they hiring them?
Seriously. Why do you hire people into roles where they're not capable of succeeding and you feel compelled that you have to deliver this kind of attitude, to boss them around and push them around and make unnecessary claims.
Now, I did very well at that firm. I also had a lot of sleepless nights. And I eventually left because I couldn't take it anymore. But I must tell you, for a lot of you, your attitude and how you think of the role of a manager or leader is defective. What you do is drive people out the door and, in these times where there are labor shortages, particularly in a lot of skilled areas, it's hard to find talent. When you do things that cause people to not want to work for you and want to flee, you're creating a problem. Your selection criteria should focus in on finding people who are inspired to be successful, who care about what they do and want to do it well --world class!
If you think that being the arrogant swine that Alec Baldwin is in this movie or yelling at people all day long is designed to help them do great work, you're wrong. He may get results for a brief period of time but, eventually, it ends and you wind up having to go elsewhere to find talent.
Why? Why do you put yourself through it. Kick the attitude. Just focus on selection and helping your people when rather than yelling, screaming, creating hostile environments for everyone and causing them to want to leave.

Putting Up With Crap | The No BS Coaching Advice Podcast

EP 80: Another confluence of events yields a reminder for this show after 3 friends came to me for advice.

Summary

Hi, I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter. This is The No BS Coaching Advice podcast. I like to spend some time regularly talking about life and today's show really comes out of three conversations I had this week. You don't have to hit me over the head in order to get my attention when three similar events occur and not tell me, "hey, this is a show that you a lot to do."
Now, what happened was …well, it first started with a friend of mine who was working on a book and he's been working on this for a few years and his agent got him to a publisher. He was thrilled. First books don't often come to a publisher, especially when you're no name. And here he is now in a situation where the publisher has gotten him a crappy cover and wants him to do something with the book that he just doesn't think makes sense from a marketing standpoint and he's calling for advice.
"What should I do? After all, I've got this trip plan and I don't really have a lot of time to deal with this."
And then another friend of mine called me talking about a situation where they were commissioned to do something or to do a piece of art and. now they're dealing with a few "inferences" if you get my drift and then, finally ,today came another friend of mine with whom I'm talking and he's in a situation where he separated from his wife. His wife's family's in the house. His son is in the house and all three of them had a similar case of, you know, "we're putting up with something that we don't want to put up with. What should I do?"
And my answer was pretty uniform why?
What do you want here? Why are you putting up with this? You are not happy with it. Now, in the case of the author, now, the question became could he negotiate with the book publisher to get a different cover and the second thing that he wanted or walk away. in the case of my friend, the the person who was commissioned, I'm not going to go into my recommendation there. I'll leave that one private. And, then ,the third one became,, " okay. You're unhappy in your own home and you sound depressed. You don't have to feel this way and I'm going to turn back to you and say, " where were you putting up with things that you really don't need to? Where are you tolerating stuff that just doesn't make sense for you to be putting up with?"
I'll just simply say these three friends of mine all came to me to look for some advice about how to manage these things. And, you know, it's, in effect. aone session call, the equivalent amount of time to a one-hour session. I can help you with some of these situations as well.
I'd love to do that. If you're interested, contact me through Linkedin at www.linkedin.com/in/TheBigGameHunter. Once were connected . . . And, by the way, message me with the connection to let me know that you listen to the show and you'd like some help. Once we're connected, message me again, and let's see if there's a time where we can speak. I would love to help you.
So, I'm Jeff Altman, The Big Game Hunter.. I hope you have a great. Take care.
