A company’s success depends on various factors and the most important of them all are its leaders and the way they work and coordinate with the team. A leader does not spring up overnight and an organization has to work really hard to utilize its resources and refine every level of the organization with strong leaders. To outshine in today’s competitive, chaotic and globalized business world, strong leadership is a priority to ensure highest efficiency and productivity of its employees.
Though every leader has a different working style, great leaders learn to modify their styles as per the individual needs and nature of their team members so as to improve communication necessary for a healthy and motivating work environment. A leader should be well-educated, honest, confident, humble, supportive, communicative, focused and calm in both good and bad times. Great leaders make great teams and leaders who are not afraid to change or shun old, outdated traditions or policies that are no longer beneficial or applicable to the team, who are capable of taking difficult decisions for the improvement of the working standards and are well aware of their team’s potential and what motivates them to work, definitely build a strong, high performance team.
Leadership team development refers to the building of such high performing team where all the team members work at their full potential ensuring highest level of proficiency and productivity. It can be achieved by following simple steps:
- Increasing awareness among the team members about their work attitudes, intellectual or creative differences and to appreciate and utilize those differences for better performance.
- Promoting communication, contact and interaction between the team members.
- Inculcating respect, loyalty, trust and team spirit.
- Defining roles and responsibilities clearly
- Considering each idea as valuable and inspiring all the team members to participate in discussions and meetings.
- Maintaining harmony within the team by mediating and resolving minor issues that may crop up between the members.
- Encouraging team members to share knowledge as well as other information.
- Providing regular feedbacks
- Evaluating team performance
- Appreciating and acknowledging the deserving employee.
In an organization, a competent and efficient team needs leadership to accomplish anything because it is the leaders who take initiative, solve problems, propose and implement ideas and take the overall responsibility of the team’s performance. To develop a good leader, create in-house leadership team developmentprograms that elevate the high-potential employees above a single role and provide them with a broader vision of the company. Assigning challenging, growth-oriented exercises tend to push them beyond their skill level and gain expertise. Mentoring, orientations, workshops etc help in lifting their morale and renewing commitment.
With the right team dynamics and coaching, leadership team development leads to profound and exciting results. It brings together a unique bunch of people that share a history, common goal and perseverance to achieve that goal. Lack of team building skills limits the efforts of the staff hampering the company’s success.
