Video: Find Your Missing Tools, See Doctors Less!

Introduction:

Many people are frustrated about the skyrocketing healthcare cost or high deductibles and co-pays. This video will show you how to significantly beat healthcare costs in 70% of primary clinical visits, for example, heart attack, stroke, burnout, depression, insomnia, weight gain, etc.

Transcript:

Most people go to their doctors whenever their health issues emerge or get worse.  Today, I am going to show you, if you find your missing tools, you will see doctors much less.

First, the question is “Does your health issue emerge or get worse under stress?”  If so, that usually means you miss some tools to meet your challenge or maintain self under stress.  About 70% of primary clinical visits act like that, for example, heart attack, stroke, burnout, depression, insomnia, weight gain, etc.

Why? Each person has 6Q, not just IQ and EQ. Doctors mainly focus on the medical part of the health. Individuals usually miss some tools outside. So, if you find your missing tools, you will see doctors much less, save time and money. You can also be your best and stay healthy easily. Our success started at clinics in 2004.

Today’s healthcare costs have been skyrocketing. To use partial assessments and then pay for endless symptom relieves is one significant cause. Many years of treatments and wellness programs can be months, weeks, or days.

Join us. We can beat the rising healthcare costs!

Contact us if you need help to find your missing tools, whether you are an individual or business.

TRANSCRIPT

Welcome to The Prince Synergy! I am Bin Yang.  Today, I want you to look at work, life, and health from a different angle and think differently about the rising healthcare cost

Many institutions provide workers an opportunity to complete a health risk assessment and a biometric screening. Today, we are going to explore what is missing in the two assessment and why partial approaches are a big cause of today’s skyrocketing healthcare costs.  First, let’s take a look at the two assessments.

Health Risk Assessment includes questions about a person’s medical history, health status, and lifestyle.  Biometric Screening focuses on risk factors such as body weight, cholesterol, blood pressure, stress, and nutrition.

Then what is missing in Health Risk Assessment & Biometric Screening?

They miss the impact of external challenges over a person’s health.  A person can suffer from heart attack and stroke even if the person is a vegetarian and an athlete and has no past and family medical history.

Without assessing the coming challenges and the person’s ability and potential, the health risk assessment and the biometric screening cannot prepare individuals to meet future challenges efficiently nor enable businesses to use the right people and make wise investments.  Complete assessments are significant to executives and elites since the two groups usually strike to meet the hardest challenges. The leading causes of death among executives and elites are the heart attack, suicide, stroke, and cancer.  The first three are directly stress-related.   Stress’ immune suppression also contributes to Cancer.

Most people, from the CEOs at the Fortune 500 companies to students at universities, know if you work too hard, if something happens, you do not feel well or feel worse, rush to the hospital.  That is a correct approach.  However, if you only go to the hospital, most likely the same issue will keep coming back and getting worse.  Why? Because you still missed the tools to meet the challenges.  Many health issues emerge or get worse under stress, called stress-related health issues.  They count for about 70% of primary clinical visits.  We set up Dream & Power to enable people like you to be your best and stay healthy efficiently.

I first helped people deal with stress and stay healthy during my residency.  I noticed that, usually, once I found their missing tools, many got well quickly, including the same day.  Their re-occurrence rates were minimum.  That is how I invented the 6Q whole system approach.  Let’s have a case study.

Case Study 1: Eliminate Insomnia with the Right Law

One time I had a patient who was an attorney.  Because his parents left all their money to him, nothing to his sister, his sister kept on suing the family, and he had to manage.  As time passed by, he developed insomnia and anxiety.  He had been to other firms before he came to me and was quite familiar with standard maneuvers, such as position change.  I asked him if his family had set up a family fund. He said no.  So, I told him, “Set up your family fund, so you do not have to give your 40% to Uncle Sam. Give it to your sister.” The attorney was speechless.  From that day, he needed no more sleeping pills or therapies.  What he needed was a right law.  Once his issue was gone, his health issues disappeared.

Not all health issues are like the attorney’s insomnia.  Still, meeting challenges with the right tools is critical to staying healthy.

Case Study 2: Beat Heart Disease

Most people know CPR.  Now a person with heart disease is saved and ready to go back to work.  What will happen if he cannot meet the next challenge?  The person will collapse again, right?

What if we can identify the skills he needs and make learning easy and fast?  What if we can also evaluate if he is on the right track and help him avoid unsuitable challenges?  Can he achieve his goal easier and quicker with fewer or no health issues?  Of course, he can.  Our success started at clinics in 2004.

About 70% of primary clinical visits are related to stress.  However, most people just keep on going back to their doctors.  In fact, one big cause of stress-related health issues is the lack of the right tools to meet challenges.   Each person has 6Q, IQ, EQ, Learning Q, Adversity Q, Public influence Q and Health Q.   Doctors mainly fix health through medicine.  Individuals usually miss some tools to other 5Qs.  Traditional education gives some tools in IQ and EQ, which mainly covers half of the human system.   By finding their missing tools, we have helped many patients recover quickly, including the same day, with minimum re-occurrence.  That is what we called “Find Your Missing Tools, See Doctors Less.”  Our success started at clinics in 2004 where we invented the 6Q Approach.

Today’s healthcare costs have been skyrocketing, threatening almost every business and individual.  To use partial assessments and then pay for endless and expensive symptom relieves is one significant cause! It is inefficient to search solutions around healthcare alone.

Join Us, we can beat rising Healthcare cost efficiently! Individuals can stay healthy, get well quickly if needed and be their best!  Businesses can beat rising healthcare cost and optimize healthcare quality and productivity at the Same Time!  Join Us, we can beat rising Healthcare cost efficiently and change the world for the better!

Build Level 5 Leadership vs Beat Rising Healthcare Cost

We have discussed how to build Level 5 leadership from different angles.  Now we are talking about how to beat rising healthcare cost.  Is there a connection between the two, looking at the hot topics below?

•    Take Your Leadership to Level 5 to Get Ahead and Stay Ahead or Beat Setbacks & Failures Ahead?
•    What Stops Leaders from Being Level 5?
•    Should A CEO Be Charming?
•    How to Retain Startup DNA?
•    What Is Missing in Health Risk Assessments & Biometric Screenings?
•    Why Google Behaves Differently When Beating Rising Healthcare Cost? 

The issues that we try to solve all have something to do with what is missing in traditional partial approaches except they have different symptoms and emerge at various stages that often starts with decision-making and ends with healthcare. What is missing in traditional partial approaches?

•    IQ and EQ tools cannot solve non-IQ and non-EQ issues efficiently, for example, adversity and self-care. Studies have found about 70% of primary clinical visits are stress-related or due to lack of the right tools to meet challenges.
•    Behavior tools can observe individuals 360 degrees but cannot anticipate development and health needs. Studies found that only 13% of companies can develop global leaders efficiently.
•    Healthcare is not set to find the missing tools but can provide expensive symptom relieves, and Doctors are often paid per visit or procedure.  In addition, not every doctor has the best knowledge. Some do unnecessary procedures. Some try to qualify their patients for more expensive procedures quicker…
•    In the meantime, most people cannot take care of self and use health system efficiently.

Without the right tools to handle non-IQ and non-EQ challenges, such as choosing the right direction, using the right people, handling setbacks, and restoring self, leaders can fail or end their journey too early.

When talent is not on the right track or does not have the right tools, they will not get the job done and take good care of self but can develop various health issues.

What is missing in leadership development and talent management gives healthcare the legitimate reason to provide endless and expensive symptom relieves, not to mention that businesses need to pay for many avoidable treatments, surgeries, emergency room visits, chronic illnesses, disabilities, and deaths.

The more people can meet challenges with the right tools, stay healthy, get well quickly if needed, the better businesses and individuals can beat rising healthcare cost.  The sooner businesses can start right, the more benefits they can enjoy along with their journeys, such as Level 5 leadership, hearts and minds, smooth project completions, and healthcare saving.  By working on health alone, the bills for endless and expensive symptom relieve and avoidable treatments, surgeries, disabilities, and deaths will keep on coming.  High deductions and co-pays can stop some unnecessary services but can also make small problems big or impossible and hurt work performance and loyalty.

Beat Rising Healthcare Costs with The Prince Synergy Dream & Power

Los Angeles, CA July. 26th, 2017– The Prince Synergy (www.ThePrinceSynergy.com) announces that TPS Dream & Power (www.DreamandPower.com) will focus on beating rising healthcare costs and offer free “Find Your Missing Tools, See Doctors Less” for 3 days (7/26-7/28/2018).

When asked about the focus, Bin Yang, the 6Q Approach Inventor and Managing Director of The Prince Synergy, said, “The skyrocketing cost of healthcare has threatened almost every business, family, and individual. Big co-pays and deductions cannot save efficiently but backfire. The key is to minimize endless and expensive symptom relief, unnecessary emergency room (ER) visits, and utilize healthcare efficiently. Businesses and individuals can not only save years of healthcare costs but also improve healthcare quality and productivity. These only take 1/3-1/2 of their one-year healthcare cost to set up. Our success started at the clinic in 2004. It is time to look at the big picture and think differently!”

Studies found about 70% of primary clinical visits are stress-related (emerge or worsen under stress), for example, heart attack, stroke, insomnia, burnout, diabetes and obesity.  The leading cause of stress is the lack of the right tool(s) to meet challenges, relax and restore self.  To find the missing tool(s) BESIDES relieving symptoms is the key to minimize the 70% visits.  Otherwise, businesses and individuals need to pay endless and expensive symptom relieves, including ER visits, BECAUSE HOSPITALS ARE NOT set to find the missing tools.  You can find case studies in this video:

In addition to unnecessary ER visits, many chronic illnesses, disabilities, and deaths can be avoided if individuals can learn how to utilize healthcare system and recognize unethical and poor doctors efficiently.  How Ms. Yang recovered her mother and herself are two good examples.

TPS Dream & Power provides what is missing in traditional approaches: healthcare cannot handle non-health causes, many people treat healthcare as hospital care, and traditional IQ, EQ and behavior tools alone have limited power over non-IQ and non-EQ issues and cannot avoid stress-related health issues (SRHI) efficiently.  TPS Dream & Power empower leaders, managers, and elites based on the mistakes found at the clinics and businesses as well as efficient ways to meet challenges, stay healthy and bring the best performance.

Find Your Missing Tools, See Doctors Less” is one diagnostic program, helping individuals with SRHI find the missing tools to meet their current challenges. Individuals often get well quickly with minimum re-occurrence and require no or fewer follow-up clinical visits and associated drug, treatments, time and money. TPS Dream & Power also helps clients build smart systems, anticipate development needs, especially health needs, and get ready quickly for their upcoming challenges. TPS Dream & Power loves feedback and new ideas and will continue challenging status quo and perfecting its services.

How Should CEOs Deal with Stress?

Many people do not understand why CEO stress has anything to do with CEO health.  In fact, the two are closely connected.

Recently, the health of Steve Jobs, the CEO of Apple, has raised a national discussion.  Many people think that his health is not his private matter because so many others depend upon him. Some even have raised a stock security issue.  Forbes has pointed out that the Apple CEO turned to cancer removal surgery eight months after the diagnosis. Would there be less unfortunate issues to begin with if leaders could take better care of themselves?

When talking about how to be a CEO, people usually do not think about sustainability at times of unexpected change, intense stress, illness or injury.  Unfortunately, life is full of unexpected challenges, which can disable our mind, or even take away our success. It takes a different set of skills to sustain our optimal creativity and health than to utilize them.  It is important to have both. An unfortunate outcome affects not only the key person, but also his/her family, partners, colleagues, employees and more.

Can You Count on Doctors?

People tend to count on doctors for their health.  However, how we handle illnesses before and after seeing doctors can mean life or death, recovery or disability. Although I had excellent medical training, I could have lost my mother had I not questioned the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) physicians after a tragic auto-accident. My mother suffered a cervical-2 fracture. Even after five weeks of intensive care, she could not get off of the ventilator. Her ICU physicians “concluded” that she would be ventilator-dependent for the rest of her life. My mother refused to live on a machine. I never doubted the ICU physicians. But at the last moment, I chose to do my own assessment and found that she did not breathe efficiently. Through a new way of breathing I taught her, my mother was taken off the ventilator successfully after only three days!

In another example, a prestigious rehab center had some very well known experts in Traumatic brain injury (TBI). These experts concluded that the poor impulse control secondary to TBI was incurable since they could not find the cure. A resident physician with a history of TBI had one unfortunate incident. These experts linked the incident with her past injury, and concluded that she had a poor impulse control and could not handle stress. They took away her residency training at the last minute even through her references from clinical training prior were excellent. Instead of telling her their reasoning, they told her something else, which has caused her a huge waste of time and money. In fact, the victim had found a way to correct the impulse control. But to these experts, if they could not find the cure, no one could! And they abandoned their own victim when their support was needed most!

Not everyone needs to go to medical school. However, we need general and systemic health knowledge about ourselves and different health systems, for example, what costly health mistakes to avoid, and how to select specialists. We need to stay in charge, especially when it is a matter of life or death, recovery or disability. A part of our 4-day Executive Synergy Program provides hands-on training in this area.

What is Missing in Your Stress Management?

According to a survey of Vistage (an international organization for CEOs), 100 percent of 2,400 participating CEOs are suffering stress. CEO stress can come from external sources, like an uncertain economy. CEO stress can also come from our body and mind, such as the examples described above. Stress, while a great motivator, can disable our thinking and creativity, which are the keys to leadership.  Stress can also harm our health and emotions.   To some extend, a par of how to be a CEO is how to manage CEO stress.   An exceptional CEO usually manages stress at another level.

Stress management to many people is limited relaxation exercises, such as deep breathing, brisk walking, meditation, Yoga and breaks. These are not enough to handle intense CEO stress. We need to build up our personal relaxation hierarchies, which are the right tools for the right levels of stress. At The Prince Synergy,  we call it “overarmed.” We need a clear mind to look into underlying causes and figure out solutions. Different people need different relaxation hierarchies.

Another common definition of stress management is “coping with stress” and “positive thinking.” We don’t have to “live with stress.” We can prevent, utilize, reduce and transform stress. We can manage stress in many ways, business, medical, legal or even “technical” ways.  A CEO suffered newly onset insomnia due to insecurities of her business. None of her relaxation methods or sleeping pills worked. Sleep is very important to productivity and wellness.  She could not have a real sense of security until her business thrived, which could take time. However, she could use her faith as “the sense of security” by placing it into her unconscious level.  Afterward, she has been sleeping like a log every night.   In addition to faith, law can also help to eliminate stress and subsequent insomnia.

Strong stress management training is even more important at times of extreme crisis, where the level of stress is highest. Some CEOs tend to check themselves into the hospital.  I had a crisis in 2007, and started crisis management immediately. I used my relaxation hierarchy to keep a clear mind, and in the meantime, kept telling myself that the crisis was not the end of the world. Instead of spending time in the hospital, I worked on my solution to turn the crisis into an opportunity the same night.

Our beliefs, perceptions, standards, visions and expectations can also affect the outcome. The cases of my mother and the rehab center are also good examples of blindly following authority figures (such as the ICU physicians) and assumptions.

Mind, Body & Society Are Integrated

What we can see in society and ourselves determines how we act and what we can achieve. I did not value Eastern medicine i at medical school. After being through family injuries and personal challenges, I have appreciated its recovery and relaxation power more and more. I sometimes acupuncture myself and pick up my own herb tea for certain types of tiredness and stress. I did not know about the internet or computers in high school. What I want and can do today is different fr om what was possible back then. There are many ways to sustain our optimal levels. We won’t “see” them until we can open to them.

How we act can also affect our health and potential profoundly.  A star athlete from Fargo High School joined Stanford on a four-year football scholarship. After he ran into bigger and meaner competitors, he chose to focus upon his economics major. He has since built a multi-billion-dollar investment bank. What if he had chosen steroid for temporary gain, or used drugs for temporary high like many others? He would have to face more problems down the road, such as systemic injuries or issues related to addictions.

Our mind, body and stress management are one integrated system. We can be limited internally and externally. The limitations can lead to stress issues in business and health if we do not take care them efficiently. We can and need to, utilize our full internal and external resources efficiently, and prosper in business and life.   Leaders should not settle with how to be a CEO, but how to be an exceptional CEO.

In summary, the skills to utilize our creativity and health and to lead are different from those to sustain the potential from unexpected change, intense stress, costly health mistakes and injury. In this age of intense competition, CEOs need these skills to stay at their optimal level and save subsequent agony from CEO stress. “Deal with Stress, Be Healthy & Happy” can identify your “missing software,” teach what you need in just a few days and help you build a firewall for your leadership.  This is not only about how to be a CEO, one key individual, but also about your family, partners, colleagues, employees and more.

Fulfill Your Dream with Power, Beat Stress-related health Issues,

Many people desire to Be YOur Best & Stay Healthy.”  The video below will show you with case studies why traditional education and career management cannot help you be your best efficiently but contribute to stress-related health issues, and how to find your missing tools and fulfill your dream with power.   If like to know how well you do, take a free “Mini Be Your Best Quiz:”

TRANSCRIPT

Today, I want you to look at work, life, and health from a different angle and think differently. 

Most people, from the CEOs at the Fortune 500 companies to students at universities, know if you work too hard, if something happens, you do not feel well or feel worse, rush to the hospital.  That is a correct approach.  However, if you only go to the hospital, most likely the same issue will keep coming back and getting worse.  Why? Because you still missed the tools to meet the challenges.  Many health issues emerge or get worse under stress, called stress-related health issues.  They count for about 70% of primary clinical visits.  We set up Dream & Power to enable people like you to be your best and stay healthy efficiently.

I first helped people deal with stress and stay healthy during my residency.  I noticed that, usually, once I found their missing tools, many got well quickly, including the same day.  Their re-occurrence rates were minimum.  That is how I invented the 6Q whole system approach.  Let’s have a case study.

Case Study 1: Eliminate Insomnia with the Right Law

One time I had a patient who was an attorney.  Because his parents left all their money to him, nothing to his sister, his sister kept on suing the family, and he had to manage.  As time passed by, he developed insomnia and anxiety.  He had been to other firms before he came to me and was quite familiar with standard maneuvers, such as position change.  I asked him if his family had set up a family fund. He said no.  So, I told him, “Set up your family fund, so you do not have to give your 40% to Uncle Sam. Give it to your sister.” The attorney was speechless.  From that day, he needed no more sleeping pills or therapies.  What he needed was a right law.  Once his issue was gone, his health issues disappeared.

Not all health issues are like the attorney’s insomnia.  Still, meeting challenges with the right tools is critical.

Case Study 2: Beat Heart Disease

Most people know CPR.  Now a person with heart disease is saved and ready to go back to work.  What will happen if he cannot meet the next challenge?  The person will collapse again, right?

What if we can identify the skills he needs and make learning easy and fast?  What if we can also evaluate if he is on the right track and help him avoid unsuitable challenges?  Can he achieve his goal easier and quicker with fewer or no health issues?  Of course, he can.  Our success started at clinics in 2004.

Each person has 6Q, IQ, EQ, Learning Q, Adversity Q, Public influence Q and Health Q.   Doctors and hospitals mainly fix health through medicine.  However, individuals also need the other 5Qs to meet their challenges, which are beyond Medicine.   No one tool can solve all issues.  Issues with any of these Qs, especially Adversity Q, can crash a person, and then the challenge-collapse-hospital cycle repeats, medical treatments become endless and expensive symptom relief, which only benefit some doctors and hospitals.

– Heart Cath:          $7,000-11,300

– Heart Stent:         $11,000-41,000

– Heart Bypass:      $70,000-200,000

– Heart Transplant: $780,000- 1,200,000

The Impact of Traditional Education and Career Management

There are many other stress-related health issues, for example, burnout, headache, ulcer, stroke, fast aging, weight gain, diabetes, fibromyalgia, etc.  Any health issue that emerges or gets worse under stress is stress-related.

Most people miss a few tools to meet their challenges, including self-management.  Besides, poor IQ and poor EQ can result from non-IQ and non-EQ sources where IQ, EQ, and behavior tools have limited power.  Then many “tough issues” in leadership & performance are created.  As the world is changing fast and more “hard issues” surface, healthcare costs continue soaring every year.  Besides, not every doctor and hospital want their patients to find their missing tools due to the conflict of interest.

We have reviewed that each person has 6Qs and hospitals mainly cover a part of health management.  Individuals usually miss some tools in the other 5Q, including self-management, for example, relaxation and energy restoration.   If we empower people with their missing tools, they should achieve their goal faster and better and have fewer or no health issues.  That is what we called “Find Your Missing Tools, See Doctors Less.”  However, traditional education mainly covers half of the human system.

Let’s take a look at the talent and leadership development history.  It has progressed from IQ-> EQ->IQ+ EQ+ some learning Q.  However, the three Qs only cover one half of the human system.  Some people try to use behavior to explore the unknown parts.  However, the same person can behave differently in different environments.   Because all 6Qs are integrated, poor IQ and poor EQ can result from non-IQ and non-EQ sources where IQ, EQ, and behavior tools have limited power.  Then many “tough issues” in leadership & performance are created.  Subsequently, more stress-related issues emerge, which is why healthcare costs continue soaring every year.

Traditional career management also contributes to the cycle as it focuses on personal interest, personality and some learning and skills.  In fact, we also need to know your skills, talent, and levels to determine your talent type and direction.   To advance career effectively, you also need other potential and stability down the road, for example, whether you can continue learning, utilize new knowledge efficiently; if you can be cool in the storm and restore your energy efficiently.  There are many other issues and solutions, including how to maintain your optimal performance.  It can be very struggling for individuals to identify these additional elements, and it can be very time-consuming.

What should you do?  Find missing tools to meet existing challenges and stay healthy now.  In the long run, you need to get on the right track to avoid unsuitable problems, have the right tools to advance career efficiently and be your doctor first, so you can be your best and stay healthy.  We provide Assessment, Consultation, Training, and Management to help you at different stages.   One thing I need to mention is that your 6Q data is usually valid for 2 years in the absence of significant events, which means that you can use the same data to handle other challenges and crises.

Case Study 3: Shoot Burnout, Save His Job!

Let’s have another case study.  This case is about an executive who had MBA and ten years of experience at a well-known leadership consulting firm in roles from consultant to local VP.  He was promoted to Regional Manager to boost regional sales and minimize turnover. Two months later, while sales remained flat, turnover got worse.  In the meantime, his wife was pregnant, very unhappy as Mr. B spent a great deal of time away from home due to the new job. By the time when I met him, he was burned out, contemplating if he should resign.

I did Executive 6Q Assessment for him and found many excellent characteristics in consulting and leadership.  He was also weak in sales, marketing, public influence, emotional expression, and energy restoration, and others.  These weaknesses were not significant to a local VP but significant to a Regional Manager.  There was no way I could address so many issues at one time, so I chose to optimize his emotional expression and teach him to share his professional stress with his wife, gain her support, and later connect with his clients.  It was 30-minutes training.  He eliminated his family crisis.  A week later, he became more confident about his job.

So, through 90 minutes of assessment, 30 minutes of training, plus my staying up late to read his Executive 6Q Assessment, the man made a breakthrough and saved his job and region.

Summary

We have reviewed that work life and health are integrated, which is why health issues can have non-health causes, poor IQ, and EQ performance can result from non-IQ and non-EQ resources. Traditional education and Career management mainly reveal pieces of human performance instead of the whole. Unless we can target issues with the right tools, more hard matters and stress-related health issues will be created.

Each person is built uniquely.  Unlike a computer, human performance can fluctuate under internal and external turbulence.  Not everyone has what they should.  However, today is no longer yesterday.  By evaluating all 6Q elements, we can make wise investments.   By targeting issues with the right tools, we often can achieve results in weeks or days instead of years or months, the attorney and the Regional manager are good examples.

A lot of time can be saved, and many dreams can come true.  Everyone deserves to be their best and stay healthy.  The 6Q technology enables you to fulfill your dream with power.

Again, look at the big picture, think differently, and then ask yourself what you need at your stage and in the long run. Above all, do not give up before consulting The Prince Synergy Dream & Power even if your issue is impossible to anyone else!  I mean ANYONE else!

How Children Study and Handle Setbacks Is Very Different!

Can Behavior or EQ alone Build a Level 5 Leader?

 

 

Video: Find Your Missing Tools for Motivation

To many people, “motivation” is a magic word that can overcome any obstacle and enable them to be their best.  In fact, they mainly use the psychological part of  motivation at a basic level.

Without the right direction and sufficient tools, motivation alone may not improve productivity and innovation, achieve your goal but increase stress-related health issues like insomnia, burnout, heart attack and stroke.   “Can He Handle the Job?” is a good example.  In addition, studies found that workplace stress is also #1 cause of turnover.   Turnover and healthcare costs all contribute to human capital costs.  IQ, EQ, behaviors, and personality are not enough to know talent.  Below is a comparison between traditional piecemeal approaches and the 6Q Approach.

To know self and others deeply is the first step for efficient motivation, including the psychological aspect.   To motivate others and translate strategy into action is a key to build a level 5 leader or an exceptional CEO.   This video will tell you how to find the missing tools for motivation in talent management.  Leadership style and compensation are other significant tools for motivation although compensation cannot motivate top talent the best.

 

How to Be an Exceptional CEO?

To many leaders, to be a CEO is not good enough– they desire to be an exceptional CEO, whether they are at Fortune 100 companies or startups.  Should they copy behaviors or build the underlying structure?  Is there a timetable?  Are IQ, EQ and Behavior tools enough?  What is the difference between how to be a CEO and how to be an exceptional CEO?  Recently, McKinsey released its CEO study on what makes a CEO “exceptional” based on their pattern recognition among a big data, including behavior analytics.   Let’s review its 3 key findings and explore what takes to be an exceptional CEO or how to be a great CEO. In the meantime, give yourself a quick self-evaluation.

  1. Come in from the outside
  2. Change the strategy within the first 2 years.
  3. Reshuffle the management team AFTER the first 2 years, and balance how much change the institution can absorb.

This is one path how to be a CEO.  Although the path may not fit you, it is good to know the underlying structure and empower yourself if suitable.

What Takes to Be an Exceptional CEO?

1. Come in from the outside?
Not everyone needs to come from outside, for example, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and GE CEO Jeffery Immelt.  Both have transformed their businesses.  The key here is how to keep a fresh and objective view and minimize attachments to old glory and routines, which is a part of human nature management. We have found that unable to do so has stopped many CEOs in our leadership study and Fortune 1000 CEO study.  I have paid a heavy price here myself.

How do you do here?  You can take a quick leadership assessment.

2+3.  Change the strategy within the first 2 years. Reshuffle management AFTER the first 2 years?
Have you wondered what if an organization cannot afford the 2 years to warm up?  For example, Alan Mullaly joined Ford Motor in 2006 when Ford was on edge of bankruptcy.  Jeffery Immelt became the CEO of GE 4 days before 911 attack hit GE badly.  Regardless where they came from, neither had 2 years to warm up their institutions.  Let’s explore what takes to develop the strategy and translate it into effective action in a timely manner.

4. What Stops Leaders from Being an Exceptional CEO?
After assessing hundreds of CEOs and non-CEOs from different sizes of institutions, we have found the following:

  • Miss the big picture due to personal needs, past successes, weak abstract thinking, poor strategy, etc.   If it does not start right, it is hard to turn it right later.
  • To our surprise, many leaders lack deep human knowledge and struggle to hire talent for today or 18-36 months down the road.
  • Lack leadership styles to inspire and influence others and win hearts and minds.
  • Poor conflict management due to not only people skills but also leaders’ unfairness and missing the big picture.
  • Poor risk-taking, which limits institution’s opportunities, resources and resilience to failures.
  • Poor learning management for self and team, which will impact change management and strategy execution.
  • Low Adversity Quotient, which causes some leaders to give up too soon.
  • Insufficient body energy to keep up with needs and poor stress management (poor health).

All the above elements require not only IQ, EQ, learning Q (LQ), but also Adversity Q, Public Influence Q, Health Q.  How the 6Q work together just like how human muscles work together in body movements.  Industries, stages of business, the status of the team and others can add, modify, or delete the required elements.    CEOs are the keys to business success and need to be ready for the worst; therefore, their issues are often too complex for traditional IQ and EQ tools alone to handle.  Then behavior analytics emerge, which can recognize many behavior patterns but not their root causes.  However, most institutions, including top MBA, build leaders with piecemeal approach and pattern recognition and receive poor results.

5. The Difference between How to Be an Exceptional CEO and How to Be a CEO

The differences between how to be a CEO and how to be an exceptional CEO are significant– an average CEO can be extraordinary in some areas and certain process, not almost all areas and all processes, especially learning and the health of their Ego.  Today, we can identify the “missing software” and strengthen leadership rapidly.

In general, symptoms are not equal to their root causes because all 6Qs can interact with one another.  For example, IQ and EQ can lose their power due to poor AQ and HQ, which is why IQ, EQ, LQ and behavior tools cannot solve all issues.  Being cool in the storm makes a leader unforgettable.  Being able to manage team’s mental health often can win CEO extra team devotion and social credits.

In addition, each element above can involve a lot of underlying work.  For example, “Focus on the Big Picture” involves not only decision-making quality, but also industrial insights, rules of games (business, society, and government), leaders’ health of Ego, innovation, resilience, and others.  Whether a leader can focus on the big picture is behavior.  Decision-making, knowledge, the health of Ego, innovation, resilience, and others are the underlying structure that will shape the behavior.   However, most people only focus on the technical part (IQ) but miss the rest, and many institutions either categorize leaders based on their today’s behaviors or waste time on secondary behaviors.

How to be a CEO is a part of corporate leadership development.  A recent Deloitte survey found that only 13% of companies are building effective global leaders.   One fundamental cause is that traditional IQ, EQ, and behavior tools alone cannot solve complex issues efficiently.   To personalize development with the right tools is one key.   Here are other keys to optimizing corporate leadership development.

Speed, Results & Power 

First, Today Is NOT Tomorrow.  Not every leader has what they “should.”  Instead of focusing on their behaviors today, we should explore the underlying structure and find the “missing software.”  Without the supporting underlying structure, today’s behavior WILL NOT exist tomorrow.  The tools are often beyond IQ, EQ and behavior alone.

Second, catch the development needs of a leader before “the 360 degree” and make wise investments because NOT all issues have quick solutions, for example, talent type and pathological Ego.  In addition, there is no one tool for all issues; therefore, we work with the best.

Furthermore, many “intractable issues” are due to a lack of the right tools.  For example, target all issues involved in “Focus on the Big Picture” with IQ tools.  By getting to the root causes with the right tools, we often can save at least 50% of the time and discover fast solutions to 30-40% “intractable issues.”   Time is money.  Efficiency is life.   I wish everyone can see that.

After years of researches, we have found that building exceptional leaders is the most efficient way to strengthen society.   How to be an exceptional CEO usually includes how to be a level 5 leader, but more challenging because a CEO needs to handle all-in-one responsibilities.   Thus, the program “Be an Exceptional CEO” usually  requires more time and effort than “Leadership, from Good to Great.”

In summary, you want to know not only how to be a CEO, but how to be an exceptional CEO.   The sooner you know the difference, the better CEO you can be, the more impact you can make on the world.

1. Identify your “missing software” before “the 360-degree evaluation,” which are often beyond IQ, EQ and Behavior tools alone.  The difference can be to do damage control or save at least 50% of the time and turn 30-40% “impossible” possible efficiently.
2. Install the “software” as smoothly as possible.  The difference can be weeks vs months or months vs years.
3. Integrate learning with practices.  The difference here can be knowledge vs action.

The right approach means more when you are a “underdog” who need to win unfair competitions.   It is easier to score higher, faster and better than to be frustrated about “justice” although you should never give up your right.   General job exposure and self-discovery are often too general and time-consuming.  These days, speed and results determine the rise and fall of businesses and CEOs.

If the 6Q approach new to you, consider read more CEO case studies in the book What Stop Leaders from Good to Great.  Like Reid Hoffman, the founder of Linkedin, said at one of his Master of Scale episodes, “You have to frequently ask yourself, ‘Which of the old lessons have to be thrown out? And which things do I have to unlearn or learn anew?’”  Throw out your old tools at least before your competitors do.  In addition, DO NOT give up your issue before consulting The Prince Synergy even if it is impossible to anyone else.
