A good LEADER create LEADERS in others!

Follow the Leader

What is a good leader?  How does a good leader create leaders in others?  Those are great questions to ponder.

What is a good leader to me?

A good leader listens even when they don’t agree and has the ability to explain their outlook and why.  Has a talented way to give constructive feedback without deflating the employee.  Hold others accountable for their actions and hold themselves accountable, as well.

The ability to communicate the strategic plan and goals for the future of the team.  Motivate and encourage team members to obtain these goals with leadership and team building skills.

A good leader is trustworthy, honest, ethical, loyal, dedicated and dependable.  They coach, mentor and respect their employees and want them to succeed within their organization.  They are upfront about difficult uncomfortable situations and the subordinates are not guessing or assuming what they really meant.  These are a few traits I believe makes a good leader.

How does a good leader create leaders in others?

A good leader meets with their employees one on one to discuss personal development.  The supervisor and staff member create an action plan with goals and training courses.  Through coaching, mentoring, a career development plan and leading with a proven successful manner, the employee will be on a career path of purpose.  It is up to the individual to pursue their dreams and aspirations to be a good leader.  Don’t underestimate the importance of having a good coach, leader or person in your life to assist you along the way. Having a good leader to follow is priceless. Just think, what possibilities could be in the workplace if everyone was a good leader.  ~ Patti

Leaders taking time away from work

As Leaders each day we push ourselves to get more completed and do more.  We continually are working on the big picture or the next great thing.  We over work and are constantly thinking about work however there comes a time to stop and live in the moment.  To spend time with family, friends, spouse/partner and really give them our full attention without focusing and thinking of work.

How do we do this?

When should we do this?

How often should we do this?

The answer:  What is really important to you?  Reflect on these questions and is it time to realize we need our family, friends, our spouse/partner in our lives.  They keep us balanced, grateful and loved.

Usually it is for them that we work so hard but they also require our loving attention as well.  It could be showing up to a ball game for our kids.  A date night with our spouse.  Taking our parents out to lunch or shopping.  Sending a text to a friend thinking of you.  Or just listening and talking about the little things. This is what matters.  Make it a point to do the little things to keep relationships alive.

Life is more than work, it is about living a good meaningful life.  Take an adventure.  Put time and effort into relationships like you do with work.  You will probably be happier and so will your friendships, family, work life and YOU!

Dealing with mistakes as a LEADER

A friend was telling me about an experience he had recently with a Supervisor.  The Supervisor told him that he had forgotten to fill out some of his paperwork and missed a couple of things.  The Supervisor corrected it and my friend thanked his Supervisor.  The next day another Supervisor approached him and said to him the other day you forgot to fill out some of your paperwork.  You really need to make sure you fill it out right.  This really upset my friend because he rarely forgets to fill out his paperwork correctly and the situation had already been addressed with him.  My friend talked to both of the Supervisors and said he rarely makes mistakes and this shouldn’t have been brought up again by the other Supervisor.  My friend was very upset and felt as though he was being ridiculed.  He felt that he shouldn’t have been reminded of the incident when it was already addressed by the first Supervisor.

Did the first Supervisor handle the situation correctly when he approached the employee and told him about the mistake?  I think he did however he didn’t need to broadcast it to the other Supervisor if this was a onetime mistake.

Did the second Supervisor handle the situation appropriately?  I think not, why bring it up again and say you really need to fill it out right.

The first Supervisor took care of the situation and talked to the employee.  He explained the mistake and fixed it.  The employee was thankful and was going to recheck his work in the future.  He left feeling encouraged and respected.

The second Supervisor changed it.  The employee now deemed humiliated, ridiculed and angry.  He was no longer encouraged about the workplace instead felt betrayed.

  • Do you think the employee is motivated, inspired and wants to come to work each day?
  • Does the employee feel safe that if he makes any other mistakes in the future that everyone is going to know about it?

Mistakes happen and that is how we learn.  We should be encouraging staff to take responsibility for their actions, correct their mistakes, as well as learn from them.  Of course if this was a continuous problem it would  be addressed differently.  ~ Patti

Reflection Questions:

  • As a Leader what do you think of this situation?
  • How would you handle this situation if it came up in your workplace?
