65. Don’t Box Your Leadership Into One Corner!!

Don’t you just wish everyone on your team would just do the things they are supposed to do?  I mean, how many times do you have to say it?  Didn’t they understand the “clear” instructions you gave the whole team?  Pretty frustrating, isn’t it?  These are some of the questions we’ll answer on this week’s episode of the Leadership Lifestyle Podcast.  You have two different objectives as a leader.  One, the team must work toward a higher, common result.  Second, each member of the team gets there differently.

Avoid lazy leadership.  As the US Post Office says, if it fits it ships. That might work for mailing products, but it doesn’t work for leadership.  You can’t just put everyone on your team in the same box.  You also can’t box yourself into a corner with one style of leadership.  We’ll give you an easy way to see how to approach the team with both a team and individual mindset.  It might sound like more work, but it actually becomes much more productive, sooner than you think.
