Jack Welch reminded us that, “Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.” Encouraging and facilitating leadership development at every level of an organization is crucial to continued success. As leaders, we can help to develop the next generation of leaders by providing employees with the opportunity to share their knowledge, skills, and experience while taking on increasing responsibility. The modern-day organization should encourage the development of a culture that does not rely on a single leader, but shares the leadership responsibility throughout the organization. This leads to an improvement in decision quality, acceptance of change, and greater job satisfaction as well as allowing individuals to develop the leadership skills the organization will need in the future.
Your front line staff plays an important role in your organization. They are the face of the organization and the relationship builders.
Success in today’s business environment requires the ability to form, develop, and work in teams effectively. Building team synergy take conscious effort and continuous attention.
Each and everyone of us has the opportunity to lead others. Leadership is simply the ability and willingness to influence those around you. Be a leader of integrity and inspire the positive in others.
Leadership is based on building relationships. This is a great reminder to really take a look at our approach to relationship development.
