Are you a Boss or a Leader?

Great leaders know how to communicate with everyone – average leaders communicate with everyone the same way.  What is your leadership style? What type of team do you want to lead to success?

Leadership is key. When a true leader motivates employees, your team has the opportunity to be inspired to do better, to be better. When teams respect their leader and have a sense of job security, the team will deliver key objectives. True teamwork comes into play, and we work as a team to help our leader’s vision come to life. A leader  sets the tone for an organization and builds a solid team that succeeds together.

 

 

Get Out Of That Rut & Start Like It’s Your First Time.

Sometimes when we feel stalled at work, we need to recharge and have a fresh start.  Enjoy the following post about being in a rut, originally posted on Matt Corker’s blog.

I don’t think “being in a rut” relies on one’s age or tenure in a department or company.
It’s a frame of mind.

When was the last time you became a rookie again and tackled a problem like it was your first time?

Leadership Lesson

Last week I was inspired…

I had the good fortune to listen to two strikingly  different yet exceptional leaders:  General Richard Hillier, Retired Chief of Defense Staff of the Canadian Armed Forces, the Forces highest rank and Sir Richard Branson, Founder of The Virgin Group.

I found it so interesting to hear a common theme in both their messages around leadership: respect for people.

 “To be an effective leader you have to care about people.  You have to make it personal”, said General Hillier.

 “Having a personality of caring about people is important,” says Branson. “You can’t be a good leader unless you generally like people. That is how you bring out the best in them.”

What else was compelling was their “down to earth” nature. Both extremely accomplished people yet they never lead with their titles. Both leaders don’t take themselves too seriously.

They both have passion for their work.  They are 100% committed to what they do.  They know where they are going and they enlist other competent people around them, listen to them and let them take over- they delegate and truly empower them.

Define your leadership style. Respect the people who work with you. And take care.
