Today’s leaders are constantly being asked to do more with less. You need every team member giving it all they’ve got. But economic challenges, competition, concerns about the future, and … people problems… can result in a negative, stressed out culture.
In fact, “people problems” often boil down to the fact that leaders are typically ill-equipped for their leadership roles and simply need to pick up some more effective tools for their leadership toolbox.
Successful leaders in today’s business environment know that the way to make a real difference – the way to positively impact the bottom line – is through effective people skills. Sure, technical skills and competencies are needed, but to draw out the best your team has to offer, you must have the ability to create a culture of collaboration, to build strong relationships based on respect, and to foster a spirit of connection and celebration within your teams.
Are your leaders and team members personally committed to a safe, engaged, and collaborative work culture, or are they merely complying with management directives? Great leaders move beyond compliance to commitment by having a personal level of engagement and buy-in to their work, the company, and their team members, and they inspire this kind of personal commitment in their team members.
Are your leaders barking orders and using the old command and control style of leadership, or are they communicating and really connecting with team members and customers? Effective leaders understand that a one-size-fits-all approach does not work and they modify their approach and tailor their communication style to each individual and situation for maximum results.
Have your leaders taken the time to get to know team members and to understand their motivations, or do they simply use the old “it’s my way or the highway approach?” Truly successful leaders identify the strengths and drives of each team member and then capitalize on those to influence team members to give the best they’ve got to give. By doing so, they improve morale and employee engagement, customer and team member satisfaction, and ultimately, positively impact the bottom line.
