Successful leaders have learned the art of managing success in their own lives. The base of their success usually lies in their personal accountability. That starts with self-accountability! Those accountability skills can be applied to shaping, coaching and guiding success in others. Effective leaders are characterized by the way in which they help their teams to be successful. For example they:
- Create a focus by developing an inspiring, energizing strategy, together with their team, that combines the need for future profitability of the business, with the need for employees to contribute to a greater purpose.
- Communicate their strategy in a way that inspires and motivates their team to support ‘the dream.’
- Implement their strategies through projects. They create a few short term projects that will lead their team towards their strategy. The short term project plan breaks the project into bite sizes chunks or specific action items.
- Get their teams to plan for success. They remove barriers that exist in the team or the organization that could prevent the team from achieving success in their jobs. An open door policy makes it easier for everyone to work together better as a team.
By providing their team with focus, discipline and support, they help their teams to be successful. In turn, they are seen as effective and successful leaders.
