Leadership sets the direction and the team follow, or do they. Leaders actually spend less than 10% on direction setting and ideally 90% bringing the team with them. Why? Because if they wander off on their own, they find themselves in lonely places – have you ever heard leaders talk about how lonely it is at the helm?, maybe they need to spend more time bringing the team along with them, and closing the chasm between themselves and the team. When leaders engage and inspire a team, amazing things happen. A team that feels truly engaged, connected and part of something special will go the extra mile because of the embedded culture. Leaders that create these environments do as much building their people, providing opportunities and supporting them as they do in their management roles, and when they speak from the helm, they command the respect of everyone, and maybe feel more connected themselves.
