Do Things as Collaborative Leaders do: Follow the Rule of 6 and 1 -Wednesday, February 17, 2021
Become the emotionally intelligent leader your team needs. Build a stronger and more inclusive team with ease. If you are a leader of a company, you are the one who is supposed to guard the company, the team, and the projects your company is working on. Probably you are the person that knows what is best for your company. For example, when someone mentions Steve Jobs, you automatically think of the person who knew what decisions are the best for Apple. Or when you think of Jeff Bezos, you know that he knows what is best for Amazon. Think of Elon Musk and you know that he is the one who knows what is best for his own companies Tesla and SpaceX. Therefore, you are the decision-maker and your team relies on you, so you better be making good decisions. Therefore, you are the decision-maker and your team relies on you, so you better be making good decisions. To be a good decision maker, you should follow Ron Howard’s words, and practice the Six and One rule on a daily basis. The Oscar-winning director in his MasterClass series says that the directors ‘’dream’’ the movie they are producing. And matter if there is only one person or hundreds of people involved, at the end of the day the director’s vision, taste and decisions are the ones that define the path of production and therefore the final result. The film it’s something that they created and nurtured, meaning it is their baby. As Howard says, "If you try to enforce that too rigidly, you're losing all the spontaneity and that sort of organic creativity that the people around you have to offer. Coming to that understanding was the beginning of a rule that I just simply call the six of one rule: Six of one, half a dozen of another."
