11 Questions You Need to Ask About Your Team's Effectiveness

11 Questions You Need to Ask About Your Team's Effectiveness | Leadership | Scoop.it

You have a great product or service. You have the funds to make it happen. Now, the big question is "Do you have the people to stand by you and execute?"

 

The biggest question for entrepreneurs today is how to create a culture to keep your dream growing to its full potential. The answer is by creating a place for people to continue to develop both professionally and personally.

 

Dividing professional and personal development is an oxymoron. One feeds the other. And when you have an environment of mutual respect and open communication, more people want to hang around with you and make magic at work. The hardest part of work is the people piece. It needs on-going attention to keep productivity high and stress low.

 

Here are 11 questions to ask yourself and your team to make sure you are heading in the right direction.

3 Reasons Why Existing Leadership Development Programs Don't Work

3 Reasons Why Existing Leadership Development Programs Don't Work | Leadership | Scoop.it

This is no longer just a leadership challenge (what good leadership looks like); it is a developmental challenge (the process of how to grow "bigger" minds). Many managers have become experts on the "what" of leadership, but novices in the "how" of their own development and the development of their teams. This is where many programs and books fall short. 

Many companies simply don't prioritize this effort or make the minimal investment of time and resources. Or they are investing in the wrong strategy.

4 Reasons Great Leaders Don't Need to Criticize

4 Reasons Great Leaders Don't Need to Criticize | Leadership | Scoop.it

I have a fundamental belief about the kind of people I try to employ. And that's that they're going to be harder on themselves than I'll ever need to be. I also believe that the concept of constructive criticism is overrated, if not an outright fallacy. Your employees are either aware of problems with their performance, or they're not.

 

The best way to find out which category they're in is through asking questions and listening. Let's look at some of the reasons this passive approach to problem-solving is good for both of you.

The Top Four Mistakes That Make Business Leaders Awful Storytellers | Leadership | Scoop.it

If "storytelling" is a common buzzword in the business world, it's for good reason—narratives make for effective communication. But the practice has become a victim of its own success. Suddenly, it's as though everyone fancies themselves "storytellers" but without really knowing what a story is or how to tell one.

The ability to manage conversations so that they are productive, inclusive, and focused on getting work done is an organizational skill that transcends expertise. Being really good at a core discipline (say, marketing, business development, or social media) is important, but being an expert only gets you so far. If you can add to your repertoire of skills the ability to facilitate conversations, you’ll add more value to your organization, and be recognized for doing so.

Digital Leadership Is Not an Optional Part of Being a CEO

Digital Leadership Is Not an Optional Part of Being a CEO | Leadership | Scoop.it

Digital leaders create small, highly empowered teams. They trust these teams to perform, and they hold them accountable for customer impact. They build real-time information systems to support decision-making, and they expect these teams to start small, iterate, experiment, and adapt. They look at their business as platforms, not just as products and services. And they design the platform around systems that can be extended, that can adapt, and that can deliver real-time information to managers at all levels.

Keys To Improving Leadership Communication 

Keys To Improving Leadership Communication  | Leadership | Scoop.it

As a leader, great communication is critical not just to provide details about the mission and vision of what you are trying to accomplish, but also to motivate, inspire and manage relationships to move people in a desired direction. 

Leadership communication is much more than the words we say and how we articulate what we want to team to “hear.” Effective communication is also about emotional intelligence, knowing your audience and active listening. Here are five things to remember when communicating with your team.

Great Leaders Replace Themselves With Great Leaders

Great Leaders Replace Themselves With Great Leaders | Leadership | Scoop.it

If there is one overarching theme it is that a great leader is a leader for others whereas a weak leader is a leader only for himself. If the mission is bigger than you, then the organization has to not only be bigger than your ego, it also has to have a life-span which is far greater than yours. This means that succession is a central issue, not a side one.

When Charismatic Leadership Goes Too Far

When Charismatic Leadership Goes Too Far | Leadership | Scoop.it

In most cases, charisma is a useful quality for CEOs. Many work hard to develop charismatic skills. Especially when an organization is asked to become more innovative and to perform beyond normal levels, having followers with an unusually strong belief in the leader and their vision increases the odds of success. 


But charisma has a dark side that can sap the strength and potency from an organization. If it grows too powerful, the leader becomes ineffective at motivating others and at driving the business.

Even if your title is “manager,” it behooves you to learn and apply the principles of leadership to your day-to-day. If you could use some clarification on the line between manager and leader, check out the following infographic from ResourcefulManager. Strive to adopt the traits on the right side of the graphic, and leave those on the left behind.
