  1. 1. Develop Yourself Dr Pegram Harrison Fellow in Entrepreneurship Saïd Business School No 1 in the UK Executive Education – Financial Times 2012 22 June 2013
  2. 2. Leading People What is the most common cause of derailment among leaders?
  3. 3. Lack of Self Awareness Misleading People !
  4. 4. Self Awareness and Personality Rationale: The most effective leaders are those who are most self-aware. Why? •  They understand their own personality and its effect on others. •  They can use that to motivate & influence others.
  5. 5. Self-Awareness and Personality 1.  Personality Traits 2.  Personality Profile 3.  Behaviour
  6. 6. Important to remember: Personality is NOT the same as Behaviour
  7. 7. Personality & Behaviour •  Left-handed people can learn to use their right hands, but they’re still lefties. •  The hand you prefer is personality; the hand you use is behaviour.
  8. 8. Personality & Behaviour •  Personality is who you are. Behaviour is what you do. •  Personality is how you prefer to behave when there are no constraints •  You can change behaviour, but not personality •  You can learn to behave in unconscious ways that seem like personality, but really aren’t (eg, sociable introverts)
  9. 9. Big 5 Personality Model 1.  Negative Emotionality (or Emotional Reactions) 2.  Extraversion 3.  Openness to Experience 4.  Agreeableness 5.  Conscientiousness
  10. 10. E: Extraversion (Intrapersonal Patterns) Disposition to get energy from social contact and to be dominant in groups Reserved, perceived as serious, prefer working alone, avoid leadership roles Outgoing, sociable, talkative, dominant, assertive + Thoughtful, thorough, non-disruptive, rich inner life - Not enough contact with others, small networks + High communicators, inclusive, good networkers - Don’t listen, don’t have time, bulldozers LOW HIGH

  12. 12. Consider your profile in terms of Tasks and Roles What does your profile suggest you prefer in types of tasks (eg: creative vs controlled)? Teams What roles does it suggest you like to adopt in teams? Organisations and Institutions What kinds of organisations do you feel comfortable in? (large corporation, small family firms) Coping What might you do to compensate for some of your profile features? Leadership What do you feel about authority (leader, follower, adaptable?)

  21. 21. Women and careers Barriers that do seem to be real: •  The Peacock Problem Women wait to be picked, while men push themselves forward •  The Imposter Syndrome Women more often lack belief in their own abilities (50%W vs 70%M) •  The Voltaire effect Le mieux est l'ennemi du bien Institute of Leadership and Management, Ambition and Gender at Work, 2011
  22. 22. Women as Negotiators Myth: women aren’t competitive or assertive enough to excel in negotiation Fact: research shows almost no difference between W and M in negotiation style. Difference is in the target: M tend to aim higher, and to be motivated by challenge. Myth: wage gaps exist because W don’t negotiate well Fact: W tend to negotiate on more than just money: time, opportunity, other benefits.
  23. 23. Women BEFORE negotiating •  Get out of your own way: don’t emphasize weakness •  Make your value visible: to yourself and others •  Do your homework: understand what’s appropriate •  Know what you want: set an appropriate target •  Expect challenges: it’s a game; play it •  Engage the other person: men find this harder

Mission – Abilities I’m pretty good at working on my own, but my boss reorganized us into teams and I need to learn how to work more collaboratively.
