Creating influence

Performance without Visibility = Non-performance


Let’s get radical for a moment.

This week we took the opportunity to walk some of our Senior Management clients through some equations that have a direct impact on their salary, their perceived influence and, subsequently, their ability to respond to conflict situations with authority and impact.

Below, we share two such equations.

Tell us what you think.


Have you seen these equations in your workplace?

Performance + Visibility = Higher pay, More influence, Better perks

Non-performance + Visibility = Higher pay, More influence, Better perks

Do you notice the paradox?


Corporate survival has become the latest spectator sport or, more accurately, the latest blood sport. We watch in amazement and, often times, in helplessness as leaders bazooka their faithful workers. Instead of highly engaged teams, the organisation becomes stifled with employees who can’t even breathe – the stress and pressure are palpable.

As you go through this, you wonder –

“Will this madness will ever end?”

“Should I just accept that in this economic battle to survive, there will be collateral damage?  Am I collateral damage?”

“Is poor leadership contagious? Will I become the people I hate?”

So may questions abound in your mind.
