As a leader, you have the most impact on the level of performance you get from your employees. You can either inspire “want to” performance, or extinguish the desire to perform all together.
The best leaders consistently behave in a way that inspires others to perform at their very best. It’s not magic, or even a mystery. They have simply made habits out of how they speak and what they do.
How many times have you walked away from a discussion thinking, “Well, that didn’t go like I thought it would.”
It’s mid-December. We’re neck deep in the holiday season, some of us still searching for just the right gift for everyone on our list. Did you know that one of the greatest gifts you can give your team and co-workers this holiday season is feedback? It’s true.
Have you ever walked into your workday and felt like your direct reports weren’t really doing their jobs? It’s as if the goals you were tasked to achieve that quarter went in one ear and out the other. As leaders, we want to get things done and deliver results.
