Hello and Happy New Year everyone!
I know is February and very close to Valentine’s Day and I know that I haven’t written articles lately, but today I feel inspire. Inspire because I want to stress the importance of team building and respect. Yea, I also thought that it’s a very obvious matter but believe or not in many places such as orgs, work and even at home, many people forget the importance of team building and respect.
Why is it important? Because if you don’t feel like you are being guided through a process that’s new to you, you might feel discouraged and yes, you will keep working on it, but it does get difficult when the person who is supposed to guide you is not supportive and you feel like she/he just wants you to fail.
So, I’ve read quotes saying that it’s better to be a leader than a boss. Those words are very true when it comes to having to work (in any place) with a group of people. How is the organization or company supposed to grow if there is a huge employee turnover ratio who are not even lasting a year on the job? Other than being disadvantageous for the new person, it is also hard financially on the organization or job.
So, just a tip to those so call leaders out there, you can be tough and hard as much as you want, and I’m not saying you have to be easy when it comes to business, but you need to learn how to appreciate your staff and teach them to be as successful as you, so that your organization’s or business’s culture is known for their leadership and employee advancement within the company, which will also reflect on the numbers.
And just because I love quotes, I’ve written below some of my favorite ones that I found today.
“Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality.” – Warren Bennis
“No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.” – Andrew Carnegie
“The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.” – Jim Rohn
“Don’t find fault, find a remedy.”- Henry Ford
“Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.” – Sam Walton
