Organizational leadership and management across Atlanta are all at full speed as businesses hit the halfway point of 2014. July is less than a week away, and everyone has their focus on the third quarter.
Guiding principles and mission must combine with vision, as facts, figures, and numbers get assessed and validated. The challenge is to stay focused on results, the productivity of every department, and the challenges of the current economy with its increases costs.
Leadership is the critical ingredient. Employees understand that the goals and objectives are very serious ones. Setting the tone is paramount as we head to the end of 2014 and another year.
There are an array of strategies that leadership needs to adhere to as Carnegie-styled managers who give employees the chance and opportunity to grow and improve. Showing a sincere interest in people increases the success of engagement. This is time of year to show honesty and appreciation. Every day is a day to say thank you for the efforts of many who support the success of the business.
Supporting the growth of employees is an important aspect of leadership success. It is important to listen to all the ideas and suggestions that come from the ranks and take appropriate action. Showing support, not only for the business and the employees, but for clients and customers, makes the challenges of opportunity a little easier. Patience and understanding are important for team success.
As the 4th of July approaches, make sure that everyone is in good spirits as they remember the importance of freedom and opportunity. It is through the strength of leadership and the commitments to people that create growth and daily success.
The Dale Carnegie ingredients of success and leadership are the same.
