Unleashing the full capacity of your people

Leadership in Public Management

To support our work with public agencies like the Cities of Palo Alto, Richmond or Benicia, we explore their trade associations and publications to keep current on their issues.

The most recent issue of Public Management, a trade magazine put out by the International City/County Management Association, had a nice article by Quint Studer on the mindset any worker needs to better engage with his or her superiors, especially elected officials. We find it translates pretty well to all types of employment.

Elected Officials as Bosses

But when you do, have a solution ready!

Mr. Studer called the list a “skill set.” We think it goes beyond that: These skills need to become second nature, where you act in positive, engaging, forward-thinking, action-oriented way as a matter of course. This is a personal leadership mindset that applies to every interaction you have with bosses, peers, constituents, citizens, customers.

Here are some of the mindset aspects we most like from the article:

“Never let yourself be the hold-up of an assignment.”
“When you bring a problem to elected officials, always bring a solution.”

These two go together. If you hit a roadblock, raise awareness immediately, but also offer what you see as the best way over or around it.

“When organizations implement change, there’s almost always a reason why. But leaders may not always explain that reason, and people almost always assume the worst.”

If you as a leader are not fully engaged with your team, with good two-way communication, they will assume the worst of any change to their work environment. This is an easy problem to fix if given the least bit of attention!

“Apologizing shows one’s vulnerability, which is a powerful trait. … It actually makes people like us. It shows we’re human, just like them.”
“Blaming, finger-pointing, and badmouthing are deeply destructive to your organization’s image.”

The second quote here might resonate with anyone: It is deeply frustrating when a public employee passes the buck when confronted with a problem by a constituent. When a citizen presents a problem to you, take it on as your problem and make their day. This lead directly to another line we like:

“Complaints are gifts. Handle them right and customer loyalty will skyrocket.”

We have some edits, of course, to a few of the points presented. We will limit ourselves to two. The first is:

“Leadership is exhausting and ineffective.”

We are not sure what Mr. Studer meant to say here. We prefer:

“Management is exhausting and ineffective when conducted with poor leadership techniques. Good leadership energizes rather than exhausts, and is quite effective.”

We do agree that you should not simply shove problems upstairs to “let them deal with it.” Always package that delivery with a solution, as noted above.

And the second quibble:

“Go out of your way to make people happy when you can, and they’ll forgive you when you make a mistake.”

This doesn’t go far enough. Being pleasant every day is great, but in the end people want leaders to help them get where they want to go, either professionally or personally:

“Go out of your way to help people to get where they want to go, and they will forgive you when you make an occasional mistake. They might even help you fix it!”

Now go out and help someone through a problem! And let us know how it goes.
