Excerpt- Make Timely Decisions

“…Depending on whether you’re a CEO at the top of the food chain, a manager in the middle, or a new supervisor, the decisions you have to make will be different in scope and consequences. But regardless of where you are in the hierarchy, you have to make timely decisions, and this requires developing the right attitude, having some tools, and developing specific competencies. 

As a first-timer, your true leadership will be tested when you are confronted with choices, and you have to make quick decisions without having enough info or time. Ready or not, you must make decisions from the get-go. The question, of course, is whether you are making timely decisions. Anybody can make the right decision if they have comprehensive data and enough time to think, reflect, gather info and consult others. The good news is that this chapter will treat you of indecisiveness. Wherever you may be on the decision-making continuum, it will take you to the next level…” Antidote 6, Make Timely Decisions, p. 125.

Excerpt- Antidote 5- Deliver Results

…By now, you might already know and even own your place. You might have already begun building your team speedily. You might also already be working on your communication. These all deserve your efforts if and only if you deliver quick results. Leadership, at the end of the day, is about delivering results.

Even though a leader must take care of the people and build processes and systems, her success is measured based on whether she has taken the team from point A to point B. The measuring stick is whether she has something to show; whether the team has met its goal or not. In the short term, stakeholders (shareholders) may be okay if a first-timer leader spends time doing the background work we have covered in the previous four chapters. After a while, though, they will expect tangible results.

If they haven’t told you yet, the people who promoted you expect you to deliver. The question is how many weeks or months they will be willing to give you before they start to question whether or not you are the right person for the position. That is why you must make delivering results your top priority. Yes, there may be a gazillion things you need to do in the first couple of weeks and months until you can ‘stand on your two feet.’ But these efforts must lead to some form of results…” Antidote 5, Deliver Results, p. 107 – 108.

Excerpt- Communicate Effectively

“Knowing and owning your place and building your team set you up for success. Nonetheless, nothing will work unless you communicate effectively with key stakeholders. You won’t benefit from knowing and owning your place without communicating confidently and articulately. And you can’t build your team successfully without communicating effectively. Without effective communication, you are unlikely to overcome the first-timer syndrome.

Having a great team in place is a good start. But for the team to work together effectively and continue to perform well, you must have effective communication strategies. The antidote in this chapter will prepare you to connect with the people with whom you work closely and to communicate with key stakeholders with whom you interact frequently…” Antidote 4, Communicate Effectively, p. 93- 94

Excerpt- Build Your Team

“Once you know your place and develop confidence based on your knowing, you own your place. These two antidotes focused on working on self, as effective and sustainable leadership begins with self. Though it is a good start, self-leadership isn’t adequate by itself, especially for first-timers. As no one claps with one hand, you cannot deliver quickly without creating a team that functions like a well-oiled machine from the get-go.

The next important task at hand is to build your team… One person is too small, too insignificant, and too insufficient to achieve extraordinary results. You need a team that functions coherently. However, that doesn’t happen unless you proactively invest your time and energy. The good news is that antidote 3 will give you a head start to fast-track your team’s growth to deliver quickly…” Antidote 3, Build Your Team, p. 79
