“Having an Open Door Policy was the biggest mistake I ever made as a manager. Stop it now.”

Cy Wakeman

Cy Wakeman

Cy Wakeman is the founder of Reality-Based Leadership. She says that people spend about 2,5 hours every day on drama oriented behaviour (1/3 of a working day): venting, complaining, judging gossiping, etc. It isn’t helpful for results and relations, for happiness at work. So this kind of behaviour doesn’t add to flourishing people and flourishing organisations. And it certainly doesn’t add to psychological safety the base of happy organisations and positive working cultures. So what can you do as a leader to stop this behaviour and led people to take ownership, responsibility and being accountable? Cy Wakeman explains it in this interview.

L. David Marquet

Former nuclear submarine Commander, author of the Amazon #1 Best Seller: Turn the Ship Around, L. David Marquet imagines a workplace where everyone engages and contributes their full intellectual capacity, a place where people are healthier and happier because they have more control over their work–a place where everyone is a leader. After being assigned to command the nuclear-powered submarine USS Santa Fe–then ranked last in retention and operational standing–he realized the traditional leadership approach of “take control, give orders,” wouldn’t work. He “turned the ship around” by treating the crew as leaders, not followers, and giving control, not taking control.

“One of the things that limit our learning is our belief that we already know something”

“With lots of happy thriving humans, the world would be a better place”

Dr. Jenny Brockis

Dr. Jenny Brockis

As a kid, Dr. Jenny Brockis loved the Just So story ‘How The Elephant Got His Trunk’. Like the elephant, Jenny was insatiably curious about the world. She wanted to know how things worked, why things were ‘Just So.’ Her curiosity led her to develop a sense of awe and wonder about the human body. Her vision is to empower everyone to be a happy, thriving human. Jenny has presented to and worked with thousands of people to empower them to cultivate a thriving mind, what it takes to stay well and think smart. Seeing the spark of insight in someone’s face when they ‘get’ what they can do for themselves, is what gets her out of bed in the morning. While knowledge is power, knowing how to apply that knowledge is the gold. And that gold you’ll find in Jenny’s newest book: Thriving Mind.

Dan Diamond, MD

Dan Diamond has worked under extreme circumstances. He led the Medical Team in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake. He noticed that people show different kinds of behaviours in stressful situations. Some act as victims, others like manipulators or bystanders. And there is a group that acts as a so-called ‘leaders’. When you take his theory and translate it to happiness at work, you can see that the behavior, or mindset, of the leader, makes you the happiest. These mindsets are not meant to label others, but ‘for internal consumption only’. We all show all four behaviours during the day. In this interview we discuss the four and what you can do to change, how you can help others to take ownership for results, relationships, and happiness at work.

“People perform best when they believe they have the power to make a difference and a conviction to put other people first”

Dan Diamond, MD

“Two interactive learning feedback loops are important ’Feeling Fast’ and ‘Thinking Slow’ “
