Promote results focused action
Today’s business leaders know that good leadership skills can result in increased business performance and greater productivity.
We see many examples of what appears to be natural leadership skills and instinct. One example is of an entrepreneur who started with a music record business. This grew into a diversified group of businesses that include airlines, mobile phones, radio, banking and even space travel. The friendly grin and bubbly personality fuels debate as to whether leadership skills can be learnt. But the kind of high growth described can only be achieved with an effective leadership team leading the various operations.
Refining your leadership skills can make you more effective at increasing business performance.
Your leadership team can get people to perform at their best by getting genuinely interested in them as human beings. Spend time understanding what motivates individuals in your business and encourage them to give their best.
Your leaders should boost self-confidence of each individual by recognising positive contributions. Leaders should be aware of the social dynamics within the business organization. They must promptly intervene to prevent or resolve any conflict that can negatively impact performance.
Focus on Getting Results
Communication is a two way street. It is not enough to communicate the vision, mission and goals to those involved in performing tasks. Your leaders must focus on achieving results. This requires the ability to prioritize and get individuals to act on completing the most valuable task fist.
Value Alternative Points of View
Leaders should invest time in understanding the points of view of the various stakeholders in the business before making decisions. Feedback from industry experts, consultants, suppliers, staff from the various departments and customers can give a leader a better understanding of the issues surrounding a matter to be decided upon. Leaders need to avoid biasness by sticking to an objective point of view when deciding the best course of action.
Implement Effective Solutions
To solve a problem, leaders should gather, analyse and evaluate all available information. All possible solutions should be assessed for inherent strengths and weaknesses. This process is critical to getting to the right solution. Leaders should avoid solutions that create other problems.
The above factors impacting on leadership effectiveness is a guide that your leadership team can build on and adept to the specific needs of your industry and the unique personalities involved in your business.
