We learn from the most respected business leaders as we work to improve our management skills. Here are a few of the behaviors we’ve been discussing around the Signature, Inc. office through the course of our leadership studies.
One thing every great leader does is model the right behaviors for his or her team. It’s not enough for top-flight managers to clarify expectations; they know they must walk the walk if they expect their associates to follow through in ways that uphold core company values.
We’ve also found that the most effective leaders know how to share exciting visions of future success. This allows them to inspire their people to perform at their best. The best managers in the world get their people to see how their efforts fit into the big pictures. Our Signature, Inc. leaders are adept in this regard, because we know how much our hard work is valued.
Inspiring leaders also build trust throughout their teams, empowering people to challenge themselves in the process. Those who work for great managers aren’t afraid to push beyond their comfort zones, because they know there are valuable lessons to be learned from any type of unexpected outcome.
We’re keeping these practices front and center in our leadership development efforts.
