Those of you who follow my blog know that I like to pick ideas from various people, places and platforms. One of such platforms is LinkedIn. You get to learn a lot from smart people and once you can apply these tips, you tend to be on top of your career or profession. LinkedIn allows you to build a track record so that employers and associates can easily find you. Let’s delve straight into the top leadership lessons I picked from the platform that could help you achieve your leadership goals for the year 2023.
To create and grow a truly dedicated and inspired team of employees and build employee loyalty, leaders must go far beyond merely satisfying their employees through coaching and mentorship.
Delegate so your time will be better spent. Delegate so your colleagues can pick up new skills. Delegate so the system does not come to a halt when you are unavailable because time is money. Poor leadership is building a great team and doing everything you can to hold onto control.
Leadership should come up with innovative ways to surprise and delight subordinates and employees at all levels. It will yield great results when focus is on employee-driven value innovation every day. Be unique in your approach to creating and delivering employee value to stand out from the competition.
Set up your team to achieve results. You don’t tell your team what to do. You help them to discover what they need to do.
Be unique in your approach to creating and delivering employee value to stand out from the competition. Remember that today’s employee likes uniqueness, and they will view their relationship with you as a special and rewarding one.
When people trust one another, they are far more likely to take risks, ask questions, admit mistakes, and offer new ideas than teams with low levels of trust. Intuitively, this should not have come as a surprise. People feel more secure when they trust those around them, including leaders.
Not only does a leader provide a platform for building valuable relationships with top clients and customers, but they also offer a wealth of opportunities for peace building, resolving problems and networking skills improvement.
Your company can have the best strategy, vision, plans, values, or purpose in the world, but if you don’t have a high degree of empathy, nothing great can happen, even if they do, your subordinates tend to easily get burnt out due to lack of compassion.
