Leaders and managers are very interesting to watch and to study. It is true to say that some leaders are better than others. Just like our hometown Braves, not everyone in an Atlanta uniform is as good as another. Organizational success is always a clear reflection of the quality of leadership in almost every respect. When we look at the important skills and competencies needed, leaders are graded for the most part by what they do and the results they produce.
Through the decades, Dale Carnegie Training, both here in Atlanta and around the world, has provided a continual focus on the strength of people and the businesses they represent. Good leadership, with the mission of achievement, takes the Carnegie classes and the workshops. It is because Carnegie Principles offer building blocks that are simple and straight-forward in any situation.
Here are five critical ingredients for today’s leadership that Dale Carnegie Training supports:
- Honesty:: There is good reason why the Carnegie Training is the best in the world! It seeks truth and ethics and it is bound by sincerity and responsibility.
- Vision: The consistency of the message is bound by a commitment to excellence and opportunity.
- Teams: Every leader needs a team. This allows the organizational spirit to increase and gives everyone the chance to achieve and to take risks to improve products and service.
- Contribution: An open door policy allows continuous growth regardless of position, and the sharing of goals and objectives makes the organization vibrant and successful.
- Relationships: Regardless of the imperfection of human capital, everyone is on the same level playing field and everyone is treated with respect and understanding.
With appreciation and focused attention, leaders improve what they do and the organizations get better as well. They serve and people grow. It indeed is win-win.
