Leadership is about taking the time necessary to provide the support your employees need.
I don't know how I can do any of that I can't help!
Sure you can! I will have you work with me and show you how much fun it can be.
"Above all, leadership is a people job. When an employee needs to talk with you--whatever the reason--make sure that you set aside the time to do so. "(7 Keys)
Working together and learning together makes working fun!
"The key to leadership success is to learn to effectively delegate both the responsibility for completing assignments and the authority required to get things done"(7 Keys)
I am overwhelmed, and need your help to take over some of my areas of responsibility.
Can I handle this work or is this above my ability?
I will ensure that you have the tools and knowledge necessary to be successful! I believe in you and your skills!
My boss trusts me and that gives me confidence!
Delegate work wisely, give employees the opportunity to take on additional duties. Provide guidance, but show your employees you trust their abilities.
Because of the great job you did on the additional work I delegated to you we have achieved success!
Employees are the subject matter experts at thier jobs. Effective leaders ask for their input!
How do you think we can improve our business? I want your perspective!
I appreciate you asking me. I have several ideas that I think will help!
Being an active listener is critical in Leadership. Show your employees you respect and appreciate their input by listening to and actioning their feedback!
Please share your perspective. I'm listening and I'm open to incorporating changes based on your suggestions.
Wow he really wants to hear what I have to say
Good Leaders recognize achievements! "Every employee wants to do a good job. And when they do a good job, employees want recognition from their bosses. (7 Keys)
You are receiving this award as recognition for all that you have done to improve our company.
My company and my leader truly appreciate me!
Leaders are also coaches and mentors and are willing to share their experience and expertise with others.
I need some guidance on what to do with my career. I respect what you have achieved would you be willing to help?
"A mentor is someone who has already served in the role they are now helping another learn. They have the experience, skills, and knowledge to share in a consultative role that offers direction, a listening ear, suggestions, and resources. It’s a much more nurturing and supportive way to develop a leader but just as effective in its result" (10 Strategies, 2015)
I would be happy to help you succeed in any way I can. Can you tell me what your interests are, and what questions you have for me?
Helping others develop through your mentorship can have a lasting impact on your success as a leader, but more importantly on the overall career success of that individual.
Thanks to your guidance I got the job I wanted! Thank you so much!
