Understandably, most businesses are focused on nurturing the relationships with their clients, but running a successful business is also dependent on effective management and leadership skills. If your employees aren’t functioning to the best of their abilities, your business won’t be either. So, ask yourself, are you an effective team leader?
Do you lead by example?
One of the best ways to fully understand how to become an effective leader is leading by example. You’re not entitled to talk the talk if you can’t walk the walk. If you expect your team to work diligently to meet a goal, you must do so yourself. If you expect your team to dress in certain attire each day, you must do so yourself. And, if you expect your team to constantly improve their productivity, share your secrets for continuous personal and professional improvement.
If you’re not sure how to do these things yourself, don’t expect your team to fully grasp the importance of productivity. An admirable trait of effective team leaders is that they’re constantly improving themselves so they can pass their new found knowledge onto their team. You are an effective leader if you can identify this trait in your own business practice.
Action Step: If you are not leading by example, then change your actions immediately. How can you expect your team to follow your golden rules if you do not follow them yourself? Think about that. Make adjustments that help support this concept and take your business to the next level.
