We have all heard that having a well aligned leadership team produces high results.
Building Connection That Matters
But where does all of this begin? When a leadership team understands what motivates their team they will ensure that development within their leadership takes places for the benefit of their employees. Leadership must have the desire and empathy to listen intently, to support, encourage and motivate their team, without demanding or talking over. This is where value and trust begins to develop in the relationship, resulting in true connection.
Understanding Company Culture Connects People Within The Organization
Connection nurturing extends into understanding the organization culture and how to cultivate it, thus building an environment of trust between employee and leadership.
Having a clear understanding of culture and ensuring that it is cultivated only empowers everyone in the office environment. When people feel they belong to a office culture, they become motivated and heightened to produce results not only for themselves but for the entire organization.
Understanding The Company Why Builds Strength and Connection
The development of a company’s Why is so critical to ensuring that you have the right people on board that have the same passion and purpose. When there is no alignment there is a disconnection between your people and the company. Every employee wants to produce positive results for their organization. With the articulation, clarity and culture of the company Why, your people will be able to march with that Baton, moving your company in the direction you have intended for it to go.
Human beings by nature have been designed to be inspired and make a difference beyond themselves.
As Simon Sinek has put it so perfectly; defining from inside the Golden Circle, knowing and doing everything within an organization from the perspective of Why the company do things, rather than What it does produces unimaginable results. Effective leaders who inspire their people daily do so by leading with the company Why, it is what causes people to wake up every morning excited about what they will produce.
Every aspect of a Company’s existence should be with the notion of creating meaningful connections that empower, inspire, and build a sense of belonging for the army that will take it towards the direction that is envisioned.
