Are You Part of a Leadership Team or a Group?

Are you part of a Leadership Team or are you part of a group? Many people at work often state that they are part of a team, but does the behaviour of the people you work with match the requirements of being a team?
I love this quote from Norman Hidle (with pronouns adjusted for 2020) that focusses on how sure / safe / secure each member is in their place in the team – so much so that they are able (and willing) to praise, share and encourage other members of the team.
I think this is a good differentiator between a team and a group of people that happen to work together. What are your thoughts? Are you part of a group or a team?

Are You a More Responsible Leader or Accountable Leader?

Are you more of a Responsible Leader or Accountable leader? Do you push yourself harder than your team (more Responsible) or your team harder than yourself (more Accountable)? Or are your responsibility / accountability behaviours in balance?

Not knowing could be having a negative effect on either yourself as leader or your team.

? Too responsible (without the corresponding level of accountability) and you will take on more than you should (ie. ‘It is just easier for me to do it’), and probably be a little resentful because of it.

? Too accountable (without the corresponding level of responsibility) and too much is placed upon your team, which they will become resentful of.

▶️ Knowing the balance – the right balance – is worth investigating. If getting the right balance is of interest to you, DM me. Our CheckPoint tool measures the balance between your Responsibility / Accountability and we can work with you to restore the efficiency and effectiveness in your work life.

People Leave Businesses Because of Poor Leadership

People leave businesses because of poor leadership.Yes – it is as simple as that. If large volumes of people are leaving a business of their own choice – look upwards at the cause.
That can be really hard to stomach when you are the person at the top – but if you don’t change your approach or reflect on why, it will keep happening.
