  • Image: 45200512 SAY: Poor leadership has everything to do with the ability to innovate. Companies promote people and expect them to be leaders. Yet poor leadership and COMMUNICATION causes frustration, turnover, and you lose the most talented and creative people. As a leader you not only need to have good leadership skills, you also have to be a good communicator. IF YOU CAN’T COMMUNICATE WELL, THEN DON’T EXPECT TO GET THE RESULTS YOU DESIRE.
  • Image: 2386752 SAY: Various studies indicate that 45-50% of all high performers are actively looking for new jobs, a percentage that is significantly higher than for low or middle performers. To a typical company, the potential economic impact caused by a mass exodus of high performers is incalculable. SAY: Nearly one in three (32%) of workers is seriously considering leaving his or her organisation at the present time. Meanwhile, another 21% are not looking to leave but view their employers unfavourably and have rock-bottom scores on key measures of engagement (i.e. an employee’s loyalty, commitment and motivation).
  • Image: 1180514 SAY: TIME FOR A POP QUIZ. SLOWLY READ THE THREE QUESTIONS ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE SLIDE. AFTER YOU DEBRIEF THE SLIDE, SAY: Do you feel as though you are being the most effective leader?
  • Image: 69203251 SAY: (DEBRIEF THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF THE SLIDE) Say: Business leaders should be very concerned when potentially 25-40% of their workers don’t trust the person to whom they report, feel under valued, or alienated. Whether it’s a bad boss or an ineffective boss, the result is that employees will either be : Actively disengaged; or Leaving the company
  • Image: 69203251 (DEBRIEF THE LEFT HAND SIDE OF THE SLIDE) Say: (ELABORATE ON THE 1 ST 2 BULLETS, THE OTHER TWO ARE SELF EXPLANATORY) If you are in the habit of answering emails with a simple yes or no, you could come off as unapproachable and possibly alienate your employees. Ok I’m not asking you to compose a novel, just make sure your message is clear to the recipient. Technology is great. However, if the last time you talked to your employees in person was before Easter, it might be time to talk with them face-to-face. So put the Blackberry down and go talk to your employees- in person.
  • SAY: When you enter her office with a question or concern she stops what she’s doing, stop reading email, makes eye contact, and thoughtfully considers what you are saying. He doesn’t come in late, take long lunches, leave early, and his whereabouts are known throughout the day. She has a good understanding of your basic duties and challenges and so is better able to make decisions that affect your job. He shares information thoroughly and timely so that you can do your job and feel a part of the organisation. A good boss creates a climate where mistakes can be tolerated, employees won’t be publicly humiliated for poor decisions, or blamed for mistakes. He is not afraid to make decisions, even the tough ones that people don’t like. Good bosses are honest and don’t just tell employees what they want to hear. They discuss poor performance, company problems, and other difficult issues clearly. He takes the time and puts forth the energy to help employees do their jobs better by setting high standards and taking time to teach. He’s not threatened by growing his staff . People want to work in atmospheres where things are accomplished, the team is moving forward, and goals achieved. A good boss facilitates and drives these. He takes the time to plan well and communicate properly so that employees know what is expected of them. Details and timeframes are made clear.
  • SAY: A simple thank you goes a long way.
  • SAY: Do you know what it’s like to work for you? SAY: Solicit feedback from your group members about how you can improve your own performance. Feedback can enable you to identify weaknesses that need to be improved as well as strengths that can be leveraged. (If the client shows interest , offer to conduct an employee survey , have the survey on hand and show the survey content to the client. )
  • Image: shutterstock_7097158 SAY: HAVE YOU EVER NOTICED THAT THE BRIGHTEST AND BEST SUROUND THEMSELVES WITH THE BEST ADVISORS. SAVVY BUSINESS PEOPLE KNOW THEY NEED THE BEST ADVSIORS.
