Effective Leadership starts with discussing what effective leadership IS inside YOUR business.
What does it look like?
What does it feel like?
What is the impact?
As simple as that sounds, it’s often the elephant in the room.
When we are not equipped to discuss leadership in a productive way, bad leadership flourishes more easily.
There’s no model of what good looks like.
No model of what’s expected.
Bad leadership can happen if there’s no willingness (or even an avoidance) to talk about leadership in the course of everyday matters.
Leadership is not something to be saved up for performance reviews and retreats. It’s a part of day to day functional excellence.
Often in many businesses’ – it’s not until people are unhappy, unproductive; (there’s water cooler talk and grumbling) that attention gets paid to this topic.
Being on the front foot and CREATING effective leadership together is key.
The takeaway from this post?
When good leadership works, it’s organically celebrated.
Good leadership is evidenced when the culture oozes positive collaboration, support, and strong team alignment.
More effective leadership begins with believing IN and believing THAT it CAN be created together.
