Probably one of the most disruptive leadership issue teams have, is being led by the wrong level. Meaning, what level is the leader on compared to the group of people they are leading? In this week’s episode of the Leadership Lifestyle Podcast, learn how being at the wrong level hurts the team. It’s certainly not an intentional thing, but when you don’t see the connection, it really creates a drain of energy for your team.
There are 3 main focus levels of leadership: The Execution Level, the Bridge Level, and the Vision Level. Not knowing where you are at as a leader and then working from the wrong level can hold you back from really achieving your goals. When you are clear about what level you’re on and then leading that way, well……if the sky is the limit….why are there footprints on the moon!
It sounds completely counterintuitive to not correct your team when things go wrong. This is not about accountability. This is about what happens every day and all day. On this week’s episode of the Leadership Lifestyle Podcast, listen in about what happens when you constantly lead through correction. More importantly, learn how much more productive your team can be when you focus on the behaviors you actually want, not what you don’t want.
We all know that is the way forward in our own lives that when we focus on good behaviors such as eating right and getting enough sleep, we feel better. So why don’t we do that for the people on our teams? Too many managers want to control things and micromanage but that never leads to growth. Take the 30-day challenge of simply focusing your team on the behaviors you want and watch how they gravitate to that, while at the same time, some of the bad behaviors start to disappear on their own.
