As I continue to work with leaders of various size organizations in various industries I’m continuing to look for the approaches that get the best results.
In Champion Leadership Tip #43 last week I mentioned the two leadership rules that the best leaders focus on to get the best results from their people, and this week’s tip is somewhat related and maybe subset of those two rules.
I’ve found what I believe to be the 3 most important things a leader can do to get their team members to respect them and to want to follow their lead:
- Articulate an inspiring vision that gets people excited to be on-board
- Address issues directly, specifically, promptly and respectfully
- Acknowledge Individual Uniqueness
As an organizational or team leader how would you grade yourself in applying those “AAA” leadership habits?
’til next time, make it a great week!
