Four Keys For Management Success
- Gather current intelligence at every opportunity. This will allow you to keep abreast of emerging trends and new developments so that you can make the right decisions at the right times. Nobody likes being at the back of the Innovation Wave or finding far too late that there has been a significant change in the market or that your customers have moved on!
- Allow your team to perform. Bring the best out of your staff, know what they can and cannot achieve and motivate them to excel. Always make sure that they have the correct resources to do the task and that they fully know what is expected of the end-result of the task.
- Encourage the team to solve problems. Really seek out their ideas and opinions so that the quality and responsiveness of your activity increases. This also builds team spirit and rapport and the more engaged the staff become the greater the results will be.
- Encourage collaboration. When everyone is involved in the action everyone makes a contribution. This is especially true when collaboration is recognised across the wider organisation as a key driver in its success. Good leaders will ensure that the most remote team members are considered and involved in critical actions and decisions and, very importantly, help to shape strategy going forward.
Good, positive leadership requires hard work and commitment from those at the helm and not just in firing out numerous emails and hoping that staff somehow, magically, become engaged. Good results come from transparency, creativity and strong team development.
