Leadership Matters. How often have we seen a new coach come in and achieve almost instant success with the same team the previous coach struggled with? Good leadership makes all the difference in the world to your employees and the performance of your company.
“Our research yielded many discoveries, but the most important was this: Talented employees need great managers. The talented employee may join a company because of its charismatic leaders, its generous benefits, and its world-class training programs, but how long that employee stays and how productive he is while he is there is determined by his relationship with his immediate supervisor..” (emphasis added)
- Marcus Buckingham and Curt Coffman, First, Break All the Rules
Everyone has an opinion on whether leaders are made or born. The problem with this debate is that it doesn’t matter. Employees choose everyday whether to follow your leadership or not. Their behavior and performance levels will align with whoever they choose to lead them. You need to give them plenty of reasons to follow you and your leadership. You need to engage them in your vision and convince them that achieving that vison is worth the trip.
LEEDR HR has the leadership expertise and training programs to help you and your company management be effective in engaging your employees as followers.
Rewards & Recognition
Desired behavior that is recognized and rewarded will tend to be repeated and become the pattern of behavior for the individual. Good managers and leaders must be effective in applying recognition and rewards to encourage the best behaviors from their employees. LEEDR HR can help you determine what methods will work best for your workforce in the context of your company’s desired culture.
