Be it a seasoned leader or a newly appointed one, to grow your organizational and managerial skills, avoiding poor habits is mandatory.
In this article at NAFCU, B Dan Berger explains some smart ways to prevent bad habits that creep up and remain on the right path.
What’s the Need?
Leaders are the epitome of perfection for their followers or subordinates. Their bad habits may reflect on their employees and organizations, which may not bring the desired outcomes for their organizations. Here are six mistakes often made by leaders and the strategies required to ward them off:
- Over-Complicating Tasks: Being constantly pulled in diverse directions makes leaders complicated to understand. They need to be mindful to avoid congestion in internal processes and efficient enough to weed out desired results.
- Commanding Mindset: To make each planned move successful, be cautious of micromanaging your staff. Set clear goals right from the initial phase of a project or task to better collaborate with your teammates.
- Ineffectual Communication Skills: Ensure establishing seamless communication with the teammates without micromanaging them.
- The Discrepancy in Expectation: Lack of clarity about customer expectation may cloud productivity. Leaders need to be focused, approachable and must outline top priorities to scale up.
- Leading Without Purpose: An unreasonable approach may cause employee disengagement. But if you make a logical move, the employees will willingly extend the commitment to the purpose.
- Process Over People: Putting process over people will be an unproductive and disengaging approach. But if you invest in the required resources and strengthen your employees the end result will surely improve.
