Setbacks are a fact of life. It’s how you respond to and overcome setbacks that sets you apart from the crowd.
To Help Others Overcome Setbacks, Set A Tone
The leader needs to overcome obstacles and live with a never-say-die attitude. That’s how you get others to overcome setbacks, too.
“You cannot expect anybody else to be persistent if you won’t,” Dov Baron, CEO of Vancouver, B.C.-based leadership training and strategy firm Dov Baron International and author of “Purpose’s Missing Piece,” told IBD.
Find The Driving Force
People need an overarching reason to keep pushing when they hit a roadblock. That reason can’t be monetary, Baron says. It won’t last. If you say the company needs one key sale to pass the $1 million mark, employees won’t deeply care. If you tie it to a bonus, it might work for a short time but not for the long run.
Baron tells business leaders to talk to employees about how they’ll use that bonus. If an employee envisions that as a way to take a family vacation, now the incentive isn’t money, it’s spending time with family.
“You have to attach a purpose,” Baron said. “It’s not logical. It’s emotional.”
Rather than viewing themselves as a knight in shining armor, tasked with rescuing their company from fire-breathing dragons, highly effective leaders face and slay their personal dragons. This is one of many thought-provoking concepts put forth by leadership expert Dov Baron in his new book. Find out if you’re a business leader trying to slay the wrong dragons.
The acclaimed business book Built to Last identified the outperformance of purpose-driven companies versus other companies in the Fortune 5oo. More recently, leadership experts such as Simon Sinek and Dov Baron have amplified the urgency of the ‘message’ for all organizations
