Competition in the marketplace is not won on the basis of size, technology or capital. It’s won through the people who work together toward common goals and objectives. Achieving optimal team performance requires highly effective leadership, coupled with strong managerial competency. People in the workplace want to follow strong leaders, and they are willing to be effectively managed by people they trust and respect.
Focus on leading and managing a team, versus simply team output, and you can achieve sustainable performance. That will give you that competitive advantage you need to succeed.
Within most organizations, the two greatest pitfalls to achieving outstanding performance and team engagement result from failing to establish balanced expectations and conflict avoidance. As a result, leaders commonly choose to exert control over creating an environment of mutual trust and respect. Such an environment may generate short-term results. But over the long term, team support and commitment are eroded and overall performance declines. Leading an organizational unit and managing a team to achieve maximum performance is a difficult an challenging responsibility.
Highly effective leaders and mangers do not result from a simple role change, but from a mindset change dedicated to excelling in leading and managing people.
Outstanding leaders and managers are not known by their title or role, but by their actions.
