Episode 11: Leadership is hard work
You don’t get to choose whether or not you are a leader. The day you start your business you become a leader, and you’ve probably been one for a long time before that. While leadership can be pretty hard work, it’s something that can be easily worked on.
It’s definitely worth doing because the results that come with good leadership are absolutely killer. Leadership is a tricky topic because it can be quite easy to get it wrong and the ripples of how that effects the team, results and behaviors can run far and wide. With that being said, there are a heap of techniques that can be used to empower your team to be able to do a good job and make your life easier as a boss. Some of those techniques are covered in this episode, they can be put in place straight away and the results will follow swiftly after.
Leadership can be used to get a level of performance out of your team that you want to see, and by the end of the episode you’ll be able to do exactly that. Using the tips from this episode including one from the manager of the All Blacks, New Zealand’s world renown rugby team, will lift the standard of your business, make your staff more accountable, and will save you from having to be a superhero putting out fires whenever they should arise.
