Energize the Organisation
A big part of any leader’s job is to provide energy for the organisation. Leaders are the batteries that jump start people and get individuals and teams moving in the right direction. Along the way, leaders serve as cheerleaders to keep the energy up and the organisation humming. Getting and keeping people excited about their jobs, enthused about the team, and motivated about what they can accomplish is no easy task. But every day, in places large and small, men and women find ways to generate the energy we all need to help us and our organisations succeed.
Develop Yourself and Others
Effective leaders understand that the strength of their organisation lies within the talents of their people and themselves. Some call this collective talent and organisation’s “intellectual capital.” Just like shrewd investors, leaders know they have a responsibility to grow this capital so that it will pay dividends to the organisation. They place a premium on continuous learning through a variety of methods. And they understand that when they and their team members stop growing, so does the organisation.
Empower Other to Lead
Fact is, the more control you give to others, the more control you have. Delegation of responsibility not only shares the workload, it also extends the boundaries of your authority. You’re able to influence and affect much more than one person could ever do. When people feel they have responsibility, they’re more likely to take ownership of their jobs. They become more accountable for their actions and they care about the results they achieve. Lead well … LEAD RIGHT.
