When we are leading a company we must ensure that the individual needs of the employees have been taken care of. It is because often many leaders take their position for granted and start demanding the respect that they often do not deserve. Respect is something that is to be earned and not to be demanded with a title. That can be done by becoming more engaged in everyday activities with the employees and as a leader, one can earn respect by creating a positive influence over one’s teammates.
As a leader, we should be asking a question: are we having attributes such as being patient, active listening, appreciation and recognising the team as a whole? From that, we can practice through which we can create positivity at the workplace as well as build a healthy bond with the teammates.
Set The Work Ethic Standard:
As a leader, we must be having strong work ethics which will create a benchmark for employees that is expected from them. When we get that we are reliable and trustworthy to employees and can help us to lead by example. When we are consistent with it helps us to send a clear message that this is not something that is expected from an individual but the entire organisation as a whole.
Don’t Be Afraid To Take Risks Or Admit When You’re Wrong:
As a leader, it is our responsibility to go above and beyond the way to take our organization to the very next level. At such times we are bound to take some calculated risk that can sometimes even result in failure. But we must be bold enough to accept it and learn from it and move on. Warren Bennis an American scholar, organizational consultant and author, widely regarded as a pioneer of the contemporary field of Leadership studies said truly “Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality”
Help Others Succeed:
If you look at some of the traits of bad leaders they are only interested in climbing the corporate ladder and not letting others do it. But on the other hand, good leaders are the ones who believe in helping others to achieve their goals and go above and beyond their job duties to help and support others. It is because leaders are the one who leads and helps others to reach their full potential. We can do this by relying upon your knowledge and wisdom and trying our employees.
Create A Positive Executive Presence Within The Workforce:
Leaders are respected in the workplace by their peers and this can help them to leave a long-lasting impression on them. It also gives us the opportunity to create a positive work environment as when we emphasize executive presents it is a powerful tool that can be very much helpful in a constructive way by making the people around us feel appreciated and valued. It is not limited, do it but it can also help us to become powerful role models for our peers. For example, we can take Sam Mizrahi, a visionary real estate developer and tireless entrepreneur who is the force behind the spectacular growth of Mizrahi Developments. Today, much of Sam Mizrahi and his team’s focus is directed toward the development of The One, Toronto’s first supertall skyscraper, which is located at the intersection of Yonge and Bloor streets in downtown Toronto. Sam is well known for creating a positive and supportive workplace for his employees.
Give Credit Where Credit Is Due:
When we are giving credit to our employees and colleagues it means that we are also sharing a part of a success rewarding and recognizing them. It is the quality of a bad leader to take all the credit and hoard positive recognition. Who is the long way in ensuring innovation and boosting up the engagement rate of the employees?
