We need to re-wire

We need to re-wire
According to S+P, 2024 is going to be characterised by productivity, efficiency and – you guessed it – headcount reductions.
Right now, Gartner estimates that:
  • 1 in 5 managers would prefer not being people managers, given a choice.
  • An average manager has 51% more responsibilities than they can effectively manage.
  • 59% of managers report spending a significant amount of time on “work to do work.”


This sucks! The lot of the middle manager is not getting better, it’s actually getting worse!

Gartner recommend that organisations rewire the work, and leaders rewire their habits.

Organisations MIGHT rewire the work, but I have my doubts.

Leaders MUST rewire their habits, it’s the only thing we have control over.

The biggest, baddest B-Suite habits that I see all the time are:

  1. Saying yes, unconditionally, instead of negotiating expectations up front
  2. Being a hero and saving the situation single-handed, instead of teaching teams
    to save themselves
  3. Doing busy work instead of influencing work – which only a leader can do
  4. Going with the flow – instead of being deliberate about the outcomes you seek
  5. Expecting your work to speak for itself – and being disappointed when people
    don’t notice or take it for granted.


Because of this, in the B-Suite Leaders Community, Monday is now NudgeDay – the day when I provide an intentional cue so you can set your week up for greater success, control and satisfaction.

Let’s rewire our leadership habits; while organisations rewire the work.

What one habit do you wish you could rewire?
