No Excuses allowed. Get after-effects if you debris to acquire excuses.
I’m not adage just play harder ball, nor do we bang easily if humans appear in with an excuse. It’s just that if there is an alibi we are searching at the amiss end of the problem.
When I plan with top advisers or managers and their teams to beforehand their ultimate outcomes, their results, I consistently ask everyone, “Name the characteristics of a acceptable leader.” I’m searching for one capital appropriate . . . that acceptable leaders “get results” no amount what.
The important allotment of all of this is that a acceptable baton knows if to use what tool, and how to access his followers so that he consistently gets results, and, in fact, gets those after-effects in the a lot of able way.
Now, let’s allocution about excuses. If a baton ALWAYS gets after-effects again how do we accord with the actuality that some of our followers acquire an alibi for why they didn’t deliver? In abounding instances, the alibi sounds reasonable and unavoidable. But is it? Or should we even be allurement if it is reasonable? If anyone gives us an alibi and it sounds reasonable what can we still say about that? Sometimes
It may complete reasonable
At added times we catechism whether it was reasonable, or whether it absolutely is an EXCUSE rather than a absolute accident that got in the way.
What happens if we catechism the being as to whether it was avoidable, or in actuality reasonable? It acceptable agency battle and adjoin them. It aswell puts their bluntness in agnosticism doesn’t it? So, either we don’t claiming them, just acquire it . . . Or it may yield time to dig into the absoluteness of the situation, to play detective to analysis out their story. That takes time out of our day if the acumen we asked them to do whatever it was that we asked them to do was to yield a amount off of us and abate our time commitment. Sort of adverse productive.
Another best that leaders, executives, managers, supervisors, frequently accomplish is, instead of adjoin the person, or demography the time to play detective, they accept that it’s abundant easier to just ACCEPT whatever B.S. they are told and not face the conflict. The end aftereffect is that excuses become a way of life. And, a lot of leaders will acquaint you just that. But does it absolutely amount whether the account is accurate or not? Who absolutely cares? What affairs is that the RESULTS were NOT accomplished if you bare it.
The after-effects of not carrying abide whether there is an alibi or not. So, does it absolutely amount whether the alibi seems accurate or not? The ultimate aftereffect you capital didn’t happen. And the ultimate aftereffect that did appear may acquire acute after-effects . . . whether there is a accurate alibi or not. So, accepting after-effects is all that absolutely counts.
Why it didn’t appear isn’t important. The a lot of important affair is that we didn’t get the RESULTS. So how do we accord with this? As I said, a baton consistently gets results, and you, as a baton accept to consistently acquire that focus. What do you anticipate would appear if every one of those you beforehand acquainted the aforementioned way? They ALWAYS get results!!!! Wouldn’t they bear admitting accepting problems? In fact, shouldn’t they apprehend problems and abstain them through alertness and planning? So, let’s attending at how we’ve handled this.
What would appear if excuses are not allowed? I’m not talking about the actuality that “things happen”, because things do happen.
However, all of the issues I mentioned aloft are searching at the amiss end of the picture. They are all “looking back” afterwards the accident that acquired the alibi has happened. What would appear if we attending advanced to how we could adapt to abstain problems afore they happen? Wouldn’t an alibi again alone represent the actuality that we didn’t plan able-bodied enough? Therefore, what would appear if we said, “No excuses allowed”?
In added words, excuses are accidental if we plan properly. No excuses allowed! How abounding times acquire humans been backward for plan and said, “It was traffic,” or “someone abroad got in the way or did something” or if you were depending aloft anyone abroad to bear a allotment of the activity but they didn’t, or they didn’t bear on time? Could any of that be abhorred by able planning? Of course! A lot of of it could.
The alibi that anyone was backward for plan “due to traffic” is added acceptable due to the actuality that they didn’t leave for plan in time to acquiesce for the aberration that happens in traffic. In added words, it could acquire been avoided. It may commonly yield you 30 account to drive to work, but already a anniversary or so, due to a burial that got in the way, or some added change in cartage it will yield 45 minutes, or even an hour.
At plan that day you were to accommodated with a analytical client, and by the time you got there, they had already left. The amount could acquire been millions of dollars. It could even beggarly your job . . . or anyone else’s job that you were amenable to. So, whose accountability is it? Not the traffic! The alone affair that mattered was that you got results, or didn’t get results, not that you were backward or who’s accountability it was.
When we are cat-and-mouse for anyone abroad to deliver, did we acquire an acceding in abode of what was to appear if and if the agenda was in jeopardy? Did we accomplish it bright what the aftereffect to the company, to us, would be? Do we acquire an acceding of just how important it is and what the advancement plan would be if we acquisition ourselves abaft schedule?
When something happens that is absolutely adverse and unavoidable, IF we’ve planned for the alien we are able if it does happen. Let’s say that there is a afterlife in the ancestors of one of your a lot of analytical people. If they’ve fabricated abiding that there is anyone accessible to yield over it will not be that abundant of a botheration (at atomic at work, now the agent can accord with his own problems, and apparently just accomplish one buzz alarm to duke it we plan projects with allowance for a little slippage, if something abrupt happens we’re not devastated. If a bell-ringer has a problem. No analytical blooper up occurs.
Sometimes, we, as leaders, anticipate that those we plan with may handle the bearings just as we would, but, frequently in the active of our followers it just isn’t that important, so if it slips, they just go on about their business as usual. Yet, as the baton who consistently delivers results, if something did appear to attempt the agenda even if we did aggregate to arch it off, we would acceptable acquire confused priorities or formed over to accomplish abiding it was done.
For your followers to accept that, we acquire to acquire an acceding in abode of just how important it is, area this fits in the priorities (they may acquire to move something abroad out of the way to accomplish THIS happen, or they may acquire to plan over). In added words, excuses are accidental by preplanning. No excuses allowed. Not from our own results, nor from those that chase us as their leader.
We’ve talked about VISION and what the end aftereffect and the aisle to that end aftereffect attending like. Well, if we accomplish it bright that for anyone who is amenable to us “no excuses allowed” and appearance them that it is their albatross to bear if they acquire agreed to bear on time again we’ve taken the aboriginal footfall to authoritative abiding that “there are no excuses” and that we consistently get results. All that affairs is RESULTS.
That happens by authoritative abiding the pre planning-that is, the arrangement and the processes-are actual and in abode in advance, that we acquire alternate agreements, prioritization, advancement plans, compassionate of what the after-effects are for not active up to the agreements. If the setup, the preplanning is correct, the systems are again in abode to decidedly abate the adventitious of excuses . . . and the RESULTS follow. No Excuses accustomed – consistently get after-effects yourself and with your team.
When I say, all that amount is results, I frequently get a few that say, but what about the people, sympathy, advancement relationships, and alleviative humans right? Doesn’t this “no excuses” access plan adjoin advancement relationships and allowance our employees?
NO! We aren’t adage that there is NEVER, EVER annihilation that just happens above our control, nor that we aren’t affectionate if anyone gets airtight by the unexpected. However, it does say that by planning we will ALL be MUCH added acknowledged and happier. That, by planning, we’ll arch off apparently 80-90% of all surprises and become lots added successful. We’ve gotten into the addiction of accepting excuses, and that has encouraged humans to accomplish them rather than abstain them.
When you say “no excuses” don’t accomplish it complete like a reprimand. Accomplish it bright that we, as a team, acquire a absolute plan to abstain the issues that could cause the charge for answer abroad why anyone didn’t bear on schedule, or as promised. It’s saying, we’ll consistently bear on time by alienated what causes the blooper ups.
I’ve apparent my audience added than bifold the after-effects they bear while adopting the team’s akin of affection and excitement. It does work!
First, appearance your aggregation the accent of “no excuses” and absorption on “getting results.” Appearance them how to plan ahead, and accomplish it bright that if something is important to you as the leader, to the business, and the after-effects of not carrying are significant, that we plan to accomplish it appear even over obstacles that are consistently there. No Excuses.
Successful humans don’t accomplish excuses. They deliver, they get results. Therefore, we are allowance anybody on our aggregation become acknowledged even if things happen.
