Having a Vision is very important, but that’s just the initial stage of leadership” driven by vision,” as communicating that vision in such a way that drives others to achieve it is essential.
Having an inspiring vision is the first step as people are motivated by changes that can make a significant difference; something bigger than themselves keeps them motivated. Promotions and bonuses drive employees; however, your vision shouldn’t be about your own success but should inspire others to do better with the chance of changing the world with their efforts. Present people with your vision, what changes you would like to make, what you would like to achieve, and how it will change their lives as well as yours will benefit. Show them what you would like to transform, and that would motivate them to join you in your vision.
One of the core elements of efficient and effective leadership is open communication with your team members. When one is responsible for a team, one needs to be honest and straightforward. If you stay ethical, your team will automatically be ready to follow you. Great leaders take their time to calculate which style of communication suits and is preferred by each member and are good listeners who keep interested in others. Active communication also creates trust among the team and boosts their self-esteem.
GROWTH THROUGH MOTIVATION
Acting as your team’s support is an essential part of being a successful leader, and an effective leader not only invests financially in its employees but emotionally as well. Employees like being given challenging tasks gives them a sense of feeling that they are trusted, which keeps them motivated. Therefore, it is great to let them take on a few challenging tasks but guide them through them. When leaders trust employees in such a way, they achieve a lot. Therefore leaders should always be open to delegating tasks and encouraging creativity and freedom.
Being a leader, it is natural to go through obstacles occasionally. If it’s an error or miscommunication, the way one handles such situations speaks a lot about their leading abilities. Successful leaders always look for the positives in a problem first, as it is easier to go through it with a cool mind and look for solutions. A positive atmosphere is likely to produce a more productive team, and by showing confidence, a great leader will see the difference it can make in their working atmosphere. Therefore the rule is “positive attitude leads to positive results.”
If you don’t directly let your team know how you feel about their work, they won’t be able to improve themselves. Constructive feedback is very important, and if an employee is doing a great job, highlight their accomplishments and let them know. Your employees are not the only ones who can gain advantages through feedback. Self-assessment can be difficult at times; therefore, it is best to take insight from your employees and peers on how you can better yourself.
