Coaching doesn’t mean you’re a bad employee
If you’re assigned a coach at work, don’t get the wrong idea, having a coach usually means your employer sees your potential and wants to help you succeed.
We need leaders we can trust
A “leadership revolution” is coming that will see leaders value their credibility and work to create trust by behaving with integrity and honesty. The system is about to change. It must. The best leaders create trust by matching their words with their deeds and keeping their promises.
Shake things up to keep your audience engaged
Not every presentation has to follow the rules. One example: Try changing up the room decor or incorporating sound into your presentation. When you’re presenting, the slides aren’t your only vehicle to getting your point across. Your environment is your canvas.
A little humility goes a long way.
There’s a difference between a leader and a boss. While both are in charge, a leader shares the spotlight and is comfortable crediting others. While it might seem counterintuitive, being humble takes more confidence than basking in glory. Your employees will appreciate it, and your clients will, too.
Effective communication is imperative, both in the office and in life. Great leaders make sure they are heard and understood, but they also know the importance of listening. Communication is a two-way street, and making the most of it will have your company zooming forward instead of pumping the breaks.
