Successful leadership and organizations across Atlanta know they need each other to grow, be profitable, and achieve goals and objectives. When Dale Carnegie Training assesses leadership quality in our courses and seminars, we look an array of key factors that help define the qualities of this important management skill. We also know that is not simple to lead employees in today’s fast paced environments. There are continuous ups and downs, and challenges that have to be addressed. Good leaders have to manage by engagement and opportunity; making the most of both creates the foundation for achievement.
Here are five common factors of successful leadership:
- Focus on the immediate: Across the business keep people engaged and committed. Give a degree of empowerment that integrates into mission, core values, and guiding principles. Active employees promote both purpose and action, and create increased understanding.
- Maintain a positive message: Communication must support and address organizational strategy. It takes a driven leader to create and manage internal relations that grow and make employees feel a part of the business.
- Take risks for the good of the business: Innovation and errors go together. How leadership handles them moves the business forward. The ability to make adjustments based on mistakes and challenges can really make the difference.
- Values and ethics are essential: Beliefs and values must come from leadership. Support at the highest levels with the degree of honesty needed, builds credibility, trust and relationship.
Success in leadership means opportunity across every business in Atlanta. Management that sets the example leads the teams to create solid products and services. As we head more deeply into 2014, it makes sense to lead and engage. The spark in every organization comes from the leadership.
