Leaders today need to understand the assignment. And it’s no longer about telling people what to do like a ruler from on high, filling out paperwork, or even getting a cushy office. Unless your WFH space is decked out and super-glam.
So I ask you: Do you fully understand the assignment….or are you working off an outdated model of the skills you need to be a successful leader?
- Foster collaboration – diversity enables your organization to look at challenges from every angle without missing anything. And it enables the best ideas to rise to the top.
- Take the time to get to know your team as individuals.
- Care about people as human beings. Understand their context. Empathetically listen before you start preaching.
“You are absolutely required to inspire, listen, empathize, develop, collaborate, and foster trust. And yes, deliver results.” — Maria Ross
