Building Loyalty Through Leadership
Define expectations. In today’s business world, it’s easy to get caught up in jargon, but when you communicate in clear, concise terms you will ensure everyone is on the same page and working toward mutual goals.
After you communicate what your team should be doing, train your team to do it well. WorldVentures™ offers a number of training resources to support you. When people are equipped to succeed, it frees them up to further develop their strengths. Instead of wondering what they should be doing, they can work on how to do it better.
Every person on your team has valuable experiences, a preferred way to communicate and a specific combination of strengths. Take the time to get to know your team, how they communicate, what motivates them and skill sets can maximize the strength of the entire team.
Transparency builds trust. Being vulnerable is often mistaken as a weakness when, in fact, it’s the key to creating loyalty.
When you demonstrate you care as much about your team’s goals as you do your own, you inspire them to work harder. Help each person seek out development opportunities. Give everyone your undivided attention and find ways to relate to each team member.
Without solid leadership, your business will never reach its full potential. Providing direction for your team really comes down to personal connections, clarifying and simplifying goals and desiring to see everyone succeed.
