In this episode, you will find out six ways you can lead a high-performance team. This is a follow-up podcast to our book club selection, Boundaries for Leaders by Dr. Henry Cloud.
- A leader always creates what he or she allows.
- Leaders, know that you are ridiculously in charge of all aspects of you team. However, know how to weild that power respectfully.
- Be mindful of the warning signs from your team that clearly indicate that boundaries are needed. Here are a few examples:
- Negative Thinking
- Lack of Results
- Not Focused
- Low Morale
- As leaders we are called to show up, to attend to the vision, goals and challenges that our teams walk through on a daily basis.
- We are also called to inhibit those behaviors or actions that should not take place.
- Leaders can ensure a healthy workplace through boundaries where everyone can feel safe and respected.
- Understanding that having a positive emotional climate is essential for leaders because it has been proven that positivity has a direct impact on your team’s results.
- No matter now much your IQ score may be, having a negative attitude can do much more damage than your smarts can ever have.
- When a leader understands that giving select control to their teams on certain teams will make them thrive – that leader will be giving out control all of the time.
- When leading, don’t be limited by your fears. Grow past your fear to make the decisions that need to be made for your team.
