Leadership

According to Sir Richard Branson, “Clients do not come first. Employees come first. If you take care of your employees, they will take care of the clients.” 

Leadership is all about people, inspiring and motivating people to become the very best version of themselves. That’s the essence of leadership; helping your people reach their full potential and helping your team maximize their gifts. What makes you effective as a leader is not the title you hold. Rather it’s demonstrating an unrelenting focus on helping others succeed in their collective efforts because when you take care of your people, it often reflects the service they provide to their customers.

Leadership development

Give people permission to make mistakes and the obligation to learn from them.
 
Mistakes will happen; it is inevitable; what happens after differentiates average organizations from greats ones. When errors are made, our actions shift from doing the right thing to covering our behinds in many instances. Pointing fingers rather than accepting personal responsibility, hiding errors rather than fixing them, and allowing minor problems to become big ones because they’re inadequately addressed.

Remember that mistakes are vital to our growth; we often put way too much pressure on ourselves to seek some unrealistic ideal of perfection. As the leader, let your team know that there’s no shame in making mistakes, and most importantly, you have their back when they happen.

I have seen people in leadership positions duck and throw their people under the bus when mistakes happen, and this leads to mistrust, lack of inspiration and the fear to try anything new. The most extraordinary people in their felids have made countless mistakes; they didn’t give up. They persevered and inspired many people to follow their example; as Albert Einstein puts it, a person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.

Leadership first

The culture of any organization is shaped by the worst behavior the leader is willing to tolerate.

When toxic employees’ negative behaviors are tolerated, it can have a hugely detrimental effect on the company’s culture, decrease collaboration between teams, affect how customers are treated, and so much more.

People in leadership positions will often look for a quick fix, but it’s not that simple. It’s easy to blame the hiring process or one individual employee, but unfortunately, the buck stops with you as the person who sits in the leadership position. You need to take full responsibility for the low morale of your department or organization and urgently address the situation before all the good employees leave and the toxic remains.
