Great Leaders Build Others Up
Posted on March 3, 2014 by Christy Kessler
Great leaders must be able to tap into the skills and resources of those around them. Yet, establishing collaborative relationships is sometimes challenging because people have different backgrounds and experiences. So, make it a point to recognize each team member’s strengths and weaknesses, understand their capabilities, and continue to nurture and support in a way that allows each to achieve their individual greatness.
Recognize that not all great ideas come from your office but from others on your team. Tap into the varied skills and wider perspectives of others in order to strengthen organizational goals and objectives.
When you allow people to provide input rather than just tell them what needs to be completed, it builds consensus around goals and is the quickest way to gain success. Ask your employees, “What are we trying to accomplish?” or “What would you do to accomplish this goal?”
Lead relentlessly, surround yourself with great people and continually build them up!
