Leadership in business has changed dramatically over the past few years. It is more inclusive, strategic and “emotionally intelligent” than ever before. Often called High Performing Leadership (HPL) , it’s a popular style because it produces results. High performing leaders are able to accomplish what every leader wants: “To inspire others to follow them to places they might not ordinarily go.”
Naturally, when a team is willing to try new ways of operating, using technology, listening to customers, or communicating, a company stays ahead of its competition and exceeds its financial, process, and people goals.
Many people devote years to becoming a nuanced, skilled leader who is able to handle any situation with grace.
The good news is that it doesn’t have to take you that long.
There are two (2) traits I’ve found that all High Performance Leaders have in common.
If you are able to honestly self-assess how well you do these already, and are open to practicing them (even just a small amount) on a regular basis, you’ll be well on your way to being the kind of leader your team enjoys following. You’ll have more motivated, results-oriented employees, and exceptionally satisfied customers.
It’s without hesitation that I say these two skills can significantly increase job-satisfaction, teamwork, efficacy, and the bottom line.
Here’s the catch: they’re so simple, you might be tempted to ignore them. Or brush them off because you’ve heard them before. But don’t underestimate the power of these two skills.
So what are they?
