Cybernetic Leadership (Birnbaum, 1988)

When facing undesirable behavior, ask “what am I doing that may be influencing what is happening?” (p. 210)
Upon encountering a problem ask “what is within my power to do to solve this problem that will not create more serious problems in the future? (p. 211)

Key Concept:

you’re still responsible
for the outcome
• Have a method for
tracking delegated tasks
• Tell the person when
you will check
back with them
Ways to prevent going
to a meeting
• Eliminate meetings that do
not directly affect your roles
and responsibilities
• If you are unsure why you have
been invited to a meeting, ask.
•Offer to send your feedback
or ideas via email instead of
attending meeting
•Send a delegate, if appropriate
Limiting your time
at meetings
• Limit the length and/or
frequency of reoccurring meetings
• Ask for an agenda
• Which portion of the meeting
is most important for you to attend?
• Ask to be either first or last
on the agenda
• Ask for the inviter to
consider a shorter meeting
(e.g. 30 or 45 minutes)
• Arrive on time
If you:

show leadership;
get along well with others;
consistently demonstrate a high
quality and quantity of work; and
have a willingness to learn and adapt to change...
