How much time do you spend every week as a Mechanic, perfecting the system? How much less value do you deliver when you are working in areas that are not in your flow? Work with your team to redesign your time to increase the amount of time you spend in flow. Base your milestones on how much you are converting your creativity into cash flow.
LH DynamicsLeadership strategy for Mechanics
Focus on your primary profile
Use your secondary profiles
Your secondary profiles are like wings. If you need to slow down, because you are ‘over-detailing’ and the team can’t keep up, shift your time to spend more of it in your secondary profiles, which are Lord and Creator. As a Lord, focus on analysis. As a Creator, focus on the big picture.
Use the 1–2–3 formula to build your team
As a general guide, the most powerful team for a Mechanic is to have a Star (2 steps clockwise along the square) to market and promote and a Trader (another 3 steps clockwise along the square) to deliver the service. This 1–2–3 formula works for all profiles.
Tune in to your team members
Each profile has a different natural way to lead, learn, communicate and get into flow. Help others to know how to best work with you, and connect with your team members, partners and customers in the way that works best for them. To do this takes an understanding of each of the profiles.
Grow your trust and flow
Mechanics create value through their detailed focus on processes and systems. People trust you for your ability to develop the best way to do things. As people see you master the process, you gain greater responsibility and are allocated more resources.
