How To Become Your Team’s Leading Role Model

Leading by example is the best way to be an effective manager. When you set a good example, your team will follow in your footsteps and have higher levels of motivation, productivity, creativity and teamwork. But how do you create this kind of leadership? How do you become the type of leader that all people on your team look up to?

Now more than ever, it is vital that businesses have leaders and people who other employees look up to. At Global Solution Services, we are here to help you develop these skills, not only to benefit yourself, but to assist everyone in your organisation.

Develop the skills which help everyone

If you are a supervisor, a team leader or you are new to management, we are on hand to ensure you develop the confidence and skills which help your entire organisation move forward.

With our training services, you will:

  • Discover how to be a great leader
  • Confidently balance between Leadership and Management
  • Keep your Team motivated and on track to reach their best performance
  • Become a 360 Leader
  • Develop the skills needed to be a successful Leader

These are all hugely important outcomes, and traits that team leaders and managers must hold right now.

It is fair to say that many people, and even whole departments, can feel a lack of motivation right now. Being able to spot the worrying signs, and being in a position where you can help people get out of this mood or feeling is crucial to the development of your team.

To ensure that you are able to do this, we must first understand what the issue is.

Think on your feet and find solutions

For example, if your team members are unproductive or creative, it may be time to develop a solution. One key attribute all leaders need to have is the ability to listen. When someone comes up with an idea, before you shoot it down immediately (if it sounds too unrealistic), consider why they would bring this up. Is there something that needs reviewing? Has a better way been found? What areas could be improved? It might not necessarily be something which relates to work, but if people have problems which affect their ability to work, it becomes an issue for organisations to deal with.

Great leaders listen to their team

By listening to your team on a regular basis, you will be able to establish whether or not people feel comfortable in voicing their opinions. If they are too scared or don’t feel as though they can speak their minds freely, this is where problems may begin.

All great managers and leaders have a responsibility to ensure all employees feel safe enough to bring up any problems that could potentially relate back to work circumstances or even personal ones. By listening to conversations, ideas and suggestions, you will be able to provide the leadership your organisation needs while remaining a strong manager.

Just because you are in a managerial role within an organisation doesn’t mean that you can’t still be friends with your team members. Yes, there is a chance that they might feel offended if you don’t offer them special treatment or privileges, but this just means being honest about the possibilities of people being upset feelings. If they aren’t willing to hear what you have to say and only want their own ideas implemented on the spot, then it may be time to change people around or look for new members who will be more appreciative of different perspectives.

If you would like to learn more about how you can become the leading role model in your team, we can help. At Global Solution Services, we offer a range of remote training courses, aimed at ensuring you move forward during these challenging times.
