What is an Organizational Efficiency Warrior? Well, it is exactly what our guest is today. Trish Tagle is the creator of the SIEZE framework which stands for Summit for Internal Efficiency and Zipped-Up Evolution. This framework supports the discovery of leadership issues in organizations and with Trish’s help, is designed to create a strategy and action plan unique to each organization.
Trish is also the best selling author of Everyone Knows You Suck: Bad Boss Stories. A Succinct Guide. In her book, she demonstrates where leaders fall down and offers advice on developing the self-awareness leaders need to have. She is also the host of Optimal Instinct Podcast.
Join us as we discuss Trish’s one of a kind framework and her advice on being a great leader within your organization.
[0:18] – Trish describes herself as an organizational efficiency warrior because she is a very “cut to the chase” type of person.
[1:57] – During this unique time with Covid-19, the people who are not accustomed to working from home are really struggling.
[2:47] – Any kind of change this big will impact the way people work.
[3:20] – SIEZE framework is Trish’s core product that stands for Summit for Internal Efficiency and Zipped Up Evolution.
[3:54] – Trish saw a need in the marketplace for quicker turn around. Most consultants take a long time but Trish wanted to get her clients their answers as quickly as possible.
[5:00] – Rather than providing a client with a 300 page document over the course of 90 days, Trish sits down with her clients and works out a step by step action plan in one day.
[6:01] – The action plans are tailored to the client’s needs and could address a time goal of 6 months, 1 year, or whatever the client needs.
[6:24] – In her book, Everybody Knows You Suck: Bad Boss Stories. A Succinct Guide, Trish divides leadership into four pillars: truth, teach, think, and trust.
[8:22] – Trish explains that all four pillars build on each other and are very interdependent.
[9:50] – Self-awareness can be a problem. Most leaders have blindspots and asking their team for feedback is a great way to be transparent and grow.
[11:13] – There’s a message everywhere. Leaders need to pay attention and not only be aware of themselves but to understand others and how they communicate.
[12:15] – It is okay to say, “I don’t know, show me.” It shows that you are willing to learn and interested in the work your team is doing.
[13:58] – Trish would run meetings where each time, a team member would show the rest of the team how to do something. It gives them the credit and appreciation they deserve and shows your support for the team.
[15:07] – There is power in being humble and being able to say, “I don’t know.”
[16:35] – If there’s only one person talking in the room, the other people are not involved in the whole team. There’s only one person driving it.
[17:16] – When people are not speaking up or having a hard time speaking up, you can tell that they are not working well as a team.
[18:01] – Trish utilizes a form to qualify clients to work through her framework and part of that is “you can’t be a seat warmer,” meaning everyone needs to participate.
[19:11] – A powerful quote by Edwin Locke that struck Trish is “Leadership is not primarily about making people feel good. It’s about knowing what you’re doing and knowing what to do.”
