Reactive vs Proactive

I listen to the Motivation on the Run podcast and love it - Larry's style is well...engaging. He talked in one of his shows about reactive vs proactive and this is absolutely true in terms of managing people. Some questions to consider

  • Do you talk to people about what they want to achieve more than what they haven't?
  • Do you talk to people of how they have incorporated learnings vs what courses they should be going on?
  • Do you talk about how they are going to achieve their objectives or how they haven't ?
  • Do you talk about their strengths more than their gaps?
  • Do you talk to them about their personal visions or their past history?

Are you a proactive or reactive manager?
