⭐️#1 Mesmerizing Leadership Secret
- Make time, even if you're super busy
, to acknowledge, compliment or appreciate the hard work of those around you! In every interaction, you are either strengthening or weakening your relationships with others
. The biggest complaint employees have is not being appreciated
for their efforts. Decide to consistently catch people doing things right
and validate them in the way they prefer (publicity vs privately), and you'll build loyal, dependable teams.
⭐️#2 Mesmerizing Leadership Secret - Ask for feedback on how you can improve as a Leader. Requesting feedback can feel intimidating, which is why most avoid it. Yet, constructive feedback offers a goldmine of opportunities to upgrade your blind spots and create stronger work relationships. Plus, you'll be modeling personal growth, which will inspire others to be more open and receptive to receiving feedback as well!
⭐️#3 Mesmerizing Leadership Secret - Validate people with non-verbal communication! Are you aware of what hidden messages your body language may be sending to others? Because Leaders and Managers are so "in demand," most are too sped up to actually be present, and they come across as impatient or annoyed. They also interrupt or talk over others, are quick to make their point without affirming the viewpoints of others, and hold postures or use mannerisms that come across as being bothered or disinterested. Employees (and colleagues) interpret this to mean, "You don't care about me," which destroy's productivity, collaboration, and morale!
Instead, take a breath through your nose, slow down, smile, make eye contact, face the person with open arms, and appreciate their thoughts prior to expressing yours! 👏🏻
