Unlabeled Leadership

013: Guy Wallace and Clarity of Purpose

Feb. 2, 2021

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives.

In Episode 13, Guy Wallace encourages us to think about our mission, establishes some firm boundaries to instill inclusiveness, and prefaces what we communicate with declarations.

00:00 Prologue: Preserving Legacies through Video Stewardship

While Guy has consulted with several clients about performance improvement, most of his consulting has been performance-based instruction. More substantial, Guy has contributed towards curating knowledge about instructional systems design, performance-based instructional analysis, and curriculum architecture design. He has published 135 videos of performance improvement practitioners, researchers, and professors. You can access the recording on the HPT Treasures website (Human Performance Technology).

00:00 Part 1: The Revelation at the Fantail Watch

The mission, purpose, or your why (if you prefer) influences how we behave. Guy relates a story that occurred during his service in the Navy.

00:00 Part 2: Inclusiveness Boundaries

For inclusiveness to flourish, we need clear boundaries. Crossing the boundaries can invite toxic behaviors, which could trigger disruption within a team, group, or organization. Before diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) became popular, Guy overtly promoted these concepts.

00:00 Part 3: Clarify with Declarations

We all could improve how we communicate. As we mature how we build relationships, learning communication techniques help. Guy shares such a technique called declarations.
