Leaders – people who made and drive our world. But let’s find out what is this complicate puzzle which we call a Leader.
At the moment we have a few theories that explain nature and how to find a leader.
Now when we found out how to see “handprint” of a Leader, we need to understand what this Leader is. Leadership is an action, which supported by different skills which can lead company/person to success.
We have traits that I think one of most important skills and attributes is:
But in our world many people can have these character traits, how to define who is a Leader and who is not? Not each manager of you is a real Leader, and which Owner is not a Leader at all. So here we can give you hints
For example, we will take Coco Chanel – business leader in fashion in 60s and Ursula Burns CEO of Xerox. Two incredible women, business leaders from past and present. Both of them I will classify as Leaders, and that why:
This is unique, and we can call it style. But what is the style of Leadership? Here is few:
(Compare leadership styles for different situations)
First example is Donald Trump (Trump Organization), he follows Autocratic style of leadership when all power is concentrated in the same hands – in the hands of the Leader. Leader does not consult with the staff and takes all decisions independently. His decisions to rebuild building in Manhattan and give them new live when everyone was voting to destroy it, bring him money and gave thousands of people a work to do. I think in this particular situation, with this particular person this style is working.
Second Example Charles Bolden, director of Nasa who follows Cross -Cultural style. Project Kepler, Juno and others included different specialists from different countries. Charles find a way how to make all people work in peace and learn from each other and then make it work great for whole planet Earth. I think this style is work perfectly if people are open mind and have good leader who can unite them under same goal.
And of course, Richard Branson founder of Virgin group who is prefer Laissez- Faire style. He inspires his people and give them tools to be leaders. I will pick up whole his business as an example. I can say that its perfect works and will help you lose people who need more direction and make loyal people who live under same idea.
Motivation. How many meanings we include in this word? One of traits of good leader it’s knows how to motivate people to achieve goals. We will show few ways below:
Ways of improving motivation and performance:
Three motivation theories: Maslow, McClelland and Vroom.
And last but not least – reward system. Apart of all what we mentioned, what should be on daily bases in your work, reward system is unique tool which can help reward workers who work hard.
We have 3 motivation theories: Maslow, McClelland and Vroom.
And few reward programs: pay-for-performance, bonuses, sharing of profit, long term benefit.
We will take as an example Google. Google united McClelland (they are motivated workers different as per their personality, they give them different task, range of power and affiliation), Maslow (satisfied their needs and give them free time with their family because apart of work they have their own life), Herzber’s Two factors Theories (to make leaders make their job also satisfied for employees and help employees find a way how to enjoy their job). McClelland and Herzber’s theory are combines with factors of bonuses and pay-for-performance reward programs.
Second example is Hallmark (U.S Television company) use Vroom theory which base on the expectancy. They make their employees believe that they can complete a task and through this achievement can get better position/salary/promotion. Company provide resources and support. Its combine with long-term benefits, bonuses and etc.
Reward is a part of Theory and we can see Effectiveness of reward system in both examples:
To provide rewards correctly we need to know how to monitor engagement, here I will advise few steps:
To have a dream-team and best result you can motivate your employees even more, just follow these steps:
In work we spend 8 hours per day, 5 days in a week. Our workplace it’s our second home and our team are our family.
Let’s found which benefits we will get from it.
First is always creative process to work in a team, during meetings you brainstorm ideas and open for you new approaches to common goal from your team. As a conclusion: you maximize your knowledge by learning from others, you become more creative. In addition, you can develop your quality and improve them. while working in a team, you will observe how your colleagues use different approaches and see what works. This means that: improving its strengths and the ability to avoid mistakes. The longer you work in a team, the more you get closer and the stronger your connection with co-workers. Minor disagreements will be easier and the process of achieving the goal is faster. Trust and new friends – are not bad benefits, right? I have already mentioned that there may be conflicts and this is normal. In the family there are also disagreements. Working in a team you will have to resolve conflicts without resorting to the help of superiors. This means you will learning conflict resolution skills. However, main goal it’s a reach a goal which company ask to. We already found out in a team you will reach it fast, but what that mean? It means appreciation of high management, CEO and etc., which is expressed in loyalty benefits, promotions and etc. It turns out that the benefit is your recognition from the company.
Thus, we also confirm the fact that while working in a team you can take a chance and try to translate into reality what you have long wanted. because in the team in cases of defeat the burden of failure will be divided completely. Take reasonable risk, it’s our final benefit!
Working in a team as a leader and member towards specific goals.
Let’s say our goal is to make our brand well-known in the world. As a leader your main responsibilities are:
