How to make ordinary People to Do extra ordinary Things ?? Right Brain Technique for Right Jobs !!!

Failed Managers with High IQ:

I know too many bright people with very high IQs who have failed as managers.

The reason is that they lacked the ability to implement, a far more important skill in the world of action, and more difficult to acquire than thinking ability.

I have known too many companies with excellent ideas and strategies who failed because their employees did not have executional abilities.

Of course, one needs to apply intelligence in executing a plan — in prioritizing tasks, for example. But I find that determination and persistence are more important in getting results.

These qualities reside on the right side of the brain, whereas analytical abilities lie on the left side. Jim Collins' study of outstanding CEOs (From Good to Great) has arrived at the same conclusion.

While recruiting Managers , I always sought persons who had willpower and resolve rather than those with sheer mind power.

The irony is that some times the education system teaches us to think but not to get things done.

You'd expect that business schools would correct this bias, but they don't teach one to implement either.

The ASIAN social bias in favour of knowledge creates an even bigger gap between thought and action.

Many of our leaders who run the world of affairs — profit and non-profit organizations, colleges, cricket teams, hospitals — lack the same ability to deliver results.

Millions of our government employees are smart, having entered via competitive exams.

Yet, they persistently fail to repair roads, provide drinking water in villages, get teachers to show up at primary schools, action an FIR at a police station.

Perhaps, the Administrative Service exam should also check out a bias for action.

We tend to blame ideology or democracy or our system, but the dirty secret is that We value ideas over accomplishment.

When Leaders set clear, measurable goals, monitored day to day progress, and persistently removed obstacles and motivate employees, but also made them accountable results are achieved.

These are some of the implementation qualities of the right brain, which make ordinary people do extraordinary things.
