Leadership People Skills Make It Easy to Gather for Success | #PeopleSkills
by Kate Nasser |
Leadership people skills foster team success. Why? Because leaders’ people skills make it easy to gather and interact for success.
No matter what the challenge and the competencies of the team, people must metaphorically and literally gather for success. They will want to gather because of your outstanding leadership people skills.
The unfortunate opposite of this is talent leaving a bad boss with horrible leadership people skills.
Leadership People Skills – Make It Easy to Gather for Success!
Successful leaders draw employees together to mix their talents for unique success. They prevent the following unnecessary and useless obstacles to interaction.
Comparing people to their predecessors.
Avoid saying things like “You have big shoes to fill” to new employees. These statements don’t gather people for success. They reflect the leaders’ fear of failure. This is a worthless unnecessary detour.
Stay on the road to success. Gather everyone today for an even better tomorrow.
Leadership people skills: Engage the talent for who they are not for who they aren’t. “We have great challenges and great talent here.” When you express your belief in them, you make it easy to gather for success!
Labeling struggle as childish.
As pressure mounts and employees voice complaints, don’t show your frustration with the statement “Stop whining.” This mislabels what they are doing and embarrasses them. How will they save face and gather for success? By avoiding you or shutting up when you’re around? This is another unnecessary obstacle to success.
The truth is complaints and whines are not the same thing. Complaints are the precursor to solutions. Whines are a child’s cry of unhappiness. Leadership people skills: Empathize with the struggle, reaffirm their talent, and elicit their solutions! This is how you make it easy to gather for success.
Using competitive philosophy w/ collaborative types.
Leaders who are motivated mostly through competition often make it hard for collaborators to gather for success. Replace: “Which one of you will come up with the best solution?” with “How many great solutions can we generate?” This makes it easy for competitive and collaborative types to gather for success. Competitors will naturally see the challenge they crave and collaborators will see the connection they need.
Leaders, to ensure your people skills make it easy to gather for success – first check your beliefs.
Successful leaders believe:
Emotional intelligence engages people for success; it doesn’t entangle, detour, and strangle results.
Inspiration brings out everyone’s best; embarrassment and threats stifle the creative spirit and amputate talents.
Collaboration promotes an exchange of diverse views to produce one tremendous result; competition shuts out interaction in the hopes of reaching the best result.
Leaders, what are your beliefs? How comfortable are you abandoning the traditional model of hierarchy and competition? If you are willing to embrace engagement, collaboration, and emotional intelligence, you will make it easy to gather for success!
