We all know the importance of Leadership and Management in the workplace. Strong management practises and systems, coupled with authentic, considerate and empathetic leadership, makes for a positive, high achieving, inspired and ambitious team of employees. We should always aim to cultivate a culture within our workplaces that empowers and lifts up, rather than patronises and puts down. In this blog, we’re going to take you through 4 Leadership and Management ideas you can use this week to help your team do its very best!
Leading and Management Idea 1: Send a positive email
There’s nothing better than opening your inbox in the morning and reading a nice email from someone else! The power of a positive email is sometimes underestimated. This week, make it a point to send an empowering email to one of your colleagues or clients, be it thanking them for something, showing them your continued appreciation, or supporting them if they are going through a difficult time. It might seem like a relatively insignificant thing to do, but it can mean a lot to the recipient!
Leading and Management Idea 2: Ask a team member for their thoughts
At Rose Training Australia, we are all about making the workplace an inclusive, open area where everyone feels confident enough to voice their thoughts. Indeed, strong leaders and managers are ones that actively listen and respond to the thoughts of their employees. If you haven’t done so already, take time this week to ask a team member for their opinions on a professional matter. It might be in regards to new office equipment, about a new partnership, or generally about the direction your organisation is heading in.
Leading and Management Idea 3: Read something.
Great leaders are well-read leaders. And not just necessarily readers of self-help books, but anything and everything! This week, make time to read something you really enjoy; be it a newspaper, blog, novel or even a speech! We don’t often realise just how important reading is. It allows us to better understand our world, connect with others, and make a positive, informed contribution to our communities. So sit back, relax, unwind and crack open that Shakespeare!!
Leading and Management Idea 4: Be punctual at work
When you are punctual to work-related meetings, you are impliedly saying that you deeply value that person’s time. And we are 100% sure they will appreciate it. In a world where being late has become the ‘norm’, good leadership and management involves and encourages us to be on time to important work events. This action shows that you are prepared, enthusiastic, appreciative and supportive of all your team members and clients, and that is so important when you are a leader in the workplace!
