K.U.B.A. Pilot – The Strategy

One of the biggest issue that each and one of us face on a daily basis is related to our relationships. Building connections with others is the key ingredient to be successful in your personal as well as in your professional life.

There is nobody in the world who has been successful without the support of other people. At least I have not found such an example.

Getting support from other people is not necessarily easy. In fact it often proves quite difficult to get people buying into our ideas and get them to help us turning our personal aspirations into reality.

The Problem

People appear to not listening to what you have to add. They don’t do what you have asked them to do. And if they do, they don’t do it the way you had asked them to. Sometimes they become even resentful towards you. In times, they may seem to try to make it even more difficult for you to reach your objectives. And more often than not you feel completely misunderstood.

To bring your aspirations into reality you do it either yourself and burn out in the process. Or you push others even harder. This is because these aspirations are important to you. You do NEED to get these results.

The Solution

By following the K.U.B.A. Pilot strategy you will be able to not only build such important connections with other people but you will also use these connections with other people ethically to get results through and with those others.

A KUBA Pilot is a person who follows the K.U.B.A. Pilot strategy. Their job is to ensure they stay on course towards not only their desired results but also towards that bigger vision, that aspiration, that becomes more real with those results. They do this by regularly checking in on the following KEY COORDINATES:

You get desired results a lot faster and more effectively if you are a KUBA Pilot who ensures that these key coordinates are kept in alignment with who you are.

The Key Coordinates

K – Know Yourself

Get to know yourself and ensure you are communicating from that knowing, from your true self. Understand deeply, what your top priorities are, what your strength and weaknesses are, how you learn and what you like and what you dislike when communicating, working and learning. You need to be absolutely honest with yourself.

Ask yourself: What is in it for me? What is the bigger picture? What do I need from others? What is important to me?

U – Understand Others

Get to understand others by having a conversation with them. Be curious of what they have to say and then listen to what they do say. Identify their strength and what you could learn from them. Identify what you have in common and how, if at all, you both together can build on this common trait, idea, ambition or interest.

Ask others: What is important to you? What do you want? What do you need? How can I help you to get what you want?

B – Build Connections

Increase your network by making contact to people outside of your social circles, team, department or industry. Be true to yourself while reaching out to others using your knowledge about yourself and your curiosity to understand these new contacts. Keep in touch to establish a strong connection with those that you have a common interest with.

Do: Initiate or engage in conversations! Reach out to people that say something that you can identify with. Respond to people that reach out to you. Help them if you can with simple things, like introducing them to one of your contacts they could speak to, recommending a book that you found valuable or an event that they may find interesting, too.

A – Align decisions

Each decision will bring you either closer or further away from your desired results. It is important that you spend your energy, time and activities on all things that help you to make progress. Look at the bigger picture. Trust your gut and check the details if the decision appears somewhat off.

Reflect: Is it a quick fix that will haunt you later or is it taking longer now but produce solid results later? Does it make sense to invest your time, money and energy in a certain activity now or is it better to leave it until there is more clarity? What are the people supporting you say? What impact does this decision have on your environment, your close circles and yourself?

You get desired results a lot faster and more effectively if you are a KUBA Pilot who ensures that these key coordinates are kept in alignment with who you are.
