Here is an important question for you to ponder:
Do you want your Leaders & Managers to influence using:
A) THEIR STATUS
B) THEIR STATURE?
If you haven’t already thought deeply about this crucial distinction before, then here is your opportunity
Stature is invisible, difficult to measure – but unmistakable when you’re in its presence. Staff respond to it positively and instinctively. The result? Willing co-operation. Status, on the other hand, doesn’t cut it long-term because it relies too heavily on an external badge (job title) rather than the leader or manager’s internal self-image.
STATURE > POSITIVE SELF-IMAGE > COMFORTABLE IN ROLE
COMFORTABLE IN ROLE > MUCH MORE EFFECTIVE AND CREATIVE
There has to be a comfortable, symbiotic relationship between how a leader or manager feels and how he or she is perceived by the outside world. You might be surprised to learn how infrequently this balance is achieved.
Leaders and Managers with stature bring a further benefit. They relate to higher management and directors much more confidently and eloquently, transferring ideas and views with greater belief and efficiency. This has to be a huge plus for any organisation that believes in releasing everyone’s potential, whatever their level. We hope you agree.
So what exactly is stature? Stature in Leadership and Management is essentially a matter of personal mindset, not of memorised procedures and rehearsed techniques. The snag with procedures and techniques is that they are often seen (consciously or sub-consciously) as manipulative, one of the great de-motivators in human relationships…So beware of teaching your personnel yet more “methods”.
Stature appeals to the positive emotions. Using desire and empathy (not obligation or fear) it delivers strong results from an unshakeable platform of self-belief. Influencing through the power of stature is the purest illustration of the law of positive cause and effect in human relationships.
