  • #77 Developing Direct Reports, with Anneli Blundell

    Anneli Blundell specialises in interpersonal intelligence - the ability to understand and navigate the people dynamics in a given situation.

    Co-author of several books on shifting human behavior, including 'Developing Direct Reports: Taking the guesswork out of leading leaders,' Anneli provides a reference guide for developing leadership performance on the job.



    Why develop the performance of others?

    Self-leadership is making sure that we equip every individual to lead themselves. These days it's the demise of the solo leader and rise of the momentary leader. And in order to cultivate those skills, we need a targeted development approach.


    The traditional approach to performance management is broken. Immediate feedback is important, not saving it up for an annual conversation. There is great power in affirmative feedback and people underestimate the value of shining a light on what's already working.

    You can say,

    ·      “I especially love the way you . . .

    ·      “It was really powerful when you . . . “

    The Pygmalion effect, where people rise to the elevated expectations we have of them vs the Golem Effect where we shrink to the lowered expectations people have of us.


    Anneli Blundell was awarded L&D Professional of the Year, 2021, from the Australian Institute of Training and Development,
