How to Change the Perceptions Others Have of You

There’s always a lag between when a leader makes a behavioral change and when others perceive the change. Maybe you’ve experienced this in your personal life when you had a conflict with a friend or spouse and he brought up something that happened in the distant past, even though you’ve worked hard to change. Or perhaps in the workplace, you were hired into a specific role and have been promoted, but others still see you in the previous role.

In our executive coaching programs, the leaders we coach face two challenges. One is to make behavioral changes. However, the second, and bigger, challenge leaders face is changing the perceptions that others have of them.

In addition, there’s always a lag between when a leader makes a change and when others notice that change or even believe it to be real and lasting.

Commit to Conflict: Go Ahead and Clash

How to engage in productive conflict When we work with leadership teams, we push them hard to engage in more conflict. Not the destructive, mean-spirited type, but the productive type where people are focused on the few but consequential issues. We have learned that without productive conflict, team members nod their heads in false agreement and then conduct the real meeting after the meeting.

And you know what happens afterward...

… decisions get revisited over and over again.
