Be direct and clear at the start of any brainstorming session.
This technique promotes the presentation of ideas and a natural flow of thought that can inspire others. Remember that there are no stupid questions or ideas!
2. Sharing the Decision-Making Process
Getting results will always be crucial.
However, in today’s society, it is done in a very different method. Cooperation, not command, is now required for success. Inviting others to join in goal-setting is an important step toward achieving the goal.
3. Listening without Interference
Ask yourself if you’re a good listener before you assume you’re ready to lead.
In order to adequately lead others, you must be a good listener. According to a recent Harvard Business Review study, leaders who listen gain more respect from their followers, build greater trust, increase job happiness, and boost their team’s inventiveness. Looking to the team is not a sign of weakness or of a lack of authority, time constraint, or a refusal to listen.
4. Strengthening Self-Awareness
Self-awareness is an emotional journey, but it may be worthwhile.
To be healthy, you must train your muscles, and improving self-awareness will improve your connections with others. It’s good to be there for them, for their successes, for their failures, to support them, and to urge them to take chances in order to continue to learn and progress. Be open to professional development opportunities at conferences, events, and personal improvement courses.
