Managers have to wear many hats. Besides striving to achieve an organisation’s goals and motivating their teams, they also have to juggle deadlines, client needs and administrative duties. A clear leadership philosophy is one of the ways to make sure that you stay on the right path.
As a leader within the business, you have to see yourself as a servant to the company and to the people. Don’t think of your team members as people who need to perform for you and impress you, rather view yourself as the person who has to work to empower and enable them to achieve their personal and professional goals. Cast the spotlight on employees who work hard to shine and explore ways to help them succeed. When you give feedback, consider how the employee’s personality and career goals are being met by the projects that you assign to them.
