Loans By Kathy: Get Motivated #18

Get Motivated #18


So, last week we talked about being a leader.  This week, we are going to take that to the next level.  As discussed, being a leader requires a certain mindset, but to REALLY be effective, you need to walk the walk and talk the talk.  

We have all experienced that "leader" that has said we want our people to handle situation as they come up, but "just check with me before you do."  That type of leadership is destined to fail.  Giving an individual the  responsibility for a job but without authority is frustrating and will lead to an unmotivated, unhappy employees or team mates.


So this week, ask yourself are you walking the walk and talking the talk.  Nothing like a little dose of reality to get your week started!

I worked for a major corporation that was and is very sucessful. The basic MO there was "I will give you a job to do then you come back later and tell me how you did it". You are totally correct in that "check with me first" is not just failed leadership, it is NON leadership.
