Follow these four tips and the squad will follow your lead more and more.
A good leader gives you feeling you’re important. I don’t remember who said it or if I quote exactly, but it’s worth mentioning because it’s important to be aware that the self doesn’t have a place to lead. I read a quotation from the quote “This is good manager makes you feel like you’re essential. You might not have leadership if you’re not comfortable enough to lift yourself.
Of all my bosses that I’ve had over the years, I think those who helped me achieve my potential and did not make me know how amazing they were are.
Four easy things to do if you want to get a team involved and to drive them to success:
Make people feel they’re important.
Everything’s pretty straightforward. Nothing feels worse than not being wanted, and vice versa, you feel valued and seriously taken into your thoughts and opinions and inspired by more actions.
Naturally, communication is a major part of making others think that they are important, but they go beyond that. Listen to the suggestions of your team members, incorporate them if necessary and, if not, convey that the concept has been taken seriously but ultimately not adopted because it was not in line with the current plan or for any other purpose.
Give credit to and make people feel important for their work and ideas.
Listen more than you speak
Too many managers think that it is their job to always speak, teach and direct and to understand the value of listening insufficiently. Make it your job, as an important leader, to ask questions, raise questions and listen to your team. Remember that you are not much of a leader without a squad to command.
One good question the team members should always ask, “What are your challenges at the moment?” All of them have challenges, and everyone is happy to talk about them. The problem is less and more critical is that you know that you are patient enough to inquire, listen and hopefully help them in overcoming their challenges. Even though not, it’s often everyone’s need to be heard.
Request critical criticism sincerely.
Whenever I speak to people anywhere in the world, usually people do their job and thank me for my conversation, when I leave the stage. That’s sweet of them, but I always respond by saying, “I appreciate the encouragement, thank you, but how about criticism? How can I get better?” This accomplishes two things. Second, it shows you that you are just as humble and connected while you may have been super confident on stage. Second, you provide real feedback, which will be used in your game later.
I asked somebody for advice during my last talk and what he told me was extremely valuable. He advised me to clear my pockets before discussions as my AirPods and car keys bounced and distracted the audience. During my conversation. I loved that note, and before I spoke I would clear my pockets.
Don’t underestimate constructive strengthening.
This is so important for all aspects of life. This is important. Only when your food is cold or not good don’t talk to the restaurant staff. Make it your business, too, to improve positively.
If you think of your squad, which is supposed to be constantly under your leadership, it’s even more critical that you do this for restaurants.
Even if it is their work, someone does something good, telling them that you appreciate the rapid change and superb service. You don’t have to give your teammates a nice word and when the next time they have a job, they will know how well they felt that the last time you loved them.
If you lead a team, put yourself in the shoes of the members of your team and do what you want others to do to you.
