Driven by a pressure to create impressive results quickly, executives in transition often forget the people around them. But a leader without followers is just a man taking a walk. As people are the key to success in any business and any industry, read here how you can leverage your own impact as a leader by pulling your people with you right from the first day.
I asked a multi-national team about their best and worst bosses: what did they do that motivated you? What did they do that de-motivated you? Their answers were plain and simple. It does not take magic to be a great leader!
How much freedom do you have at work? And how much freedom do you allow your employees?
Weak managers fear that employees abuse freedom at work. Effective 21st century leaders however trust their employees. They believe that giving them autonomy brings out the best in them. Instead of micromanaging tasks and time, effective leaders manage expectations. They encourage, empower, and enable individuals to take ownership and deliver results instead of telling them what to do and how to do it.
