A recent article, 3 Questions Every Leader Should Ask To Succeed by Paul Keijzer says that leaders at any rank in an organization, whether at the very top or somewhere in the middle are always subjected to severe scrutiny. Thus, to stay on course and gratify the expectations that come with the job, leaders should appraise their performance and ability to lead.
Here are three questions leaders should ask themselves if they really want to succeed.
1. Am I being too emotional?
When emotions take over your judgment or decision, your ability to think objectively and logically get impaired. That’s when you make blunders such as retaining an incompetent and lethargic employee, or arguing with an irritating client. Essentially, you’ll be taking action and judgment that won’t entirely be in the best interest of the company.
2. Am I favoring employees?
This “habit” greatly affects employee morale and confidence. The “favorites” often get so much spotlight that others feel their efforts to go the extra mile would go overlooked and unrecognized. And that’s when you as a leader in a team office space have failed to use and develop every talent’s true potential.
3. Am I sharing my vision with my team?
If you haven’t shared and discussed your vision with your team then your efforts to attain and accomplish them will backfire. It’s because great and successful leaders depend largely on strong, capable and empowered teams. You need to communicate and discuss your vision with them, you can rent a meeting space to brainstorm with your team, get their ideas and feedback to help you execute your plan towards achieving your company goal or vision.
