A recent article, 7 Strengths of Likable Leaders by Mike Michalowicz says that owning a company doesn’t necessarily make you an inspiring, respected leader. It takes effort to earn the trust and respect of your employees. In fact, being an inspiring leader means being the best leader you can be.
Here are five leadership hacks that will not only benefit your business, but will also gain your employee’s loyalty.
- Be thankful
Take every chance to shower deserving employees with public praise, and you’ll earn loyalty and constant support from them.
- Be Kind
Spend some time to learn about your staff’s concerns, their stresses, and their families. Find ways to make a connection between personal and business goals. This will build an environment of success for you and your employees.
- Empower your Staff
If you want your employees to support your company like their own, then you must empower them and allow them to be part of decision making. You may have to accept some gaffes along the way, but engaged and responsible employees are worth it.
- Be approachable
Be always ready to listen, to advise, and to guide. For example, you can book a meeting room and schedule a regular meeting for discussion, brainstorming and training to help your staff learn to solve some work issues on their own.
- Call your employees by name
Calling and addressing your staff by their names suggest connection and respect. Learning the most basic piece of information (their names) about your employees makes them feel important and boost their morale.
