The book serves as a good reminder that respectful listening combined with genuine follow-up and follow-through are great ways to involve, encourage and empower people, whether they fall under your reporting line or not.
The importance of positive relationship development and the resulting value when the topics suddenly get real are points well made in Tell Me More. I was reminded that honest, direct and genuine dialogue can transform a potentially negative situation into a positive. Leadership qualities like humility, fairness and empathy are displayed by the characters, as is the payback that can be gained from building such a culture and pushing that down from the senior management level.
An aspect of the story that resonated with me involves our desire to solve problems and execute solutions quickly, without giving enough thought to the development of each individual teammate. We all want a shorter task list and that can lead to implementing half-baked remedies. Pushing back the chair to truly understand the problem, then guiding the person facing it to come around to his or her own understanding of the problem builds confidence and achieves buy-in to the solution. While it may still be your solution, they have arrived at it on their own through the tell me more discovery method.
Finally, Michael Sherlock's story deals with the issues of personal confidence and vulnerability that many leaders feel. Can I do it? Will my people listen? Can I get out from under my own shadow? The book describes the necessary transition from executing everything directly to empowering people to find and execute their own solutions. As the saying goes, many hands make the work seem light. This book gets right to that point.
-Scott Clifford, Equity Analyst, Long-term Investment Strategist; Former Global Solutions Manager, Microscan --Amazon reader review, Tell Me More 1st edition
I have just finished reading Michael Sherlock's book and I am absolutely buzzing to tell you more! I had been a manager in training for a little over a year before I took on my current role as general manager, and Michael's message resonated with me from the start. I must admit I am similar to the book's character Maria in the way that I assumed because people have always liked working with and for me, that I was developing them in a way that was highly engaging. While I may preach the notion of taking the time to answer a question with a question, reading this book helped me recognize that I am not always practicing that method on a daily basis (and if we are only doing something occasionally, does it ever truly change how things are done?). I have never been so engaged by a book that is meant to be motivational and to teach a type of leadership strategy. So insightful!
