Six Essential Leadership Strategies
New guide urges bosses to lead for good, not evil
Bosses have a profound impact on their employees’ work-lives and their careers, not to mention their employer’s bottom-line (think turnover).
“People don’t quit jobs, they quit bosses,” says David Grossman, founder and CEO of leadership and internal communication consultancy, The Grossman Group. “What many people don’t realize is the impact a boss can have on an employee’s career. Recent research has found that 20% of employees say their boss hurts or has hurt their career, and organizations can’t afford the negative impact: not to mention the costs: of bad bosses.”
Every day bosses make choices in how they lead. In his new eBook, Bosses: Good vs. Bad, 6 Strategies to Lead with Your Inner Angel, Grossman urges all bosses to follow these six strategies to lead effectively:
1. Put others first
2. Make development and career discussions part of your ongoing conversations with employees
3. Give employees feedback regularly and coach them
4. Bring out the best in every employee and help them develop their skills
5. Know how your employees learn and grow best
6. Know their career aspirations and personal ambitions
“When the devil’s in charge, he urges the boss to take credit for someone else’s work,” says Grossman. “But when the angel’s running the show, he urges the boss to lead and inspire his team, and give credit where it’s due.”
