Leader me: Developing a leadership philosophy
Motivation is a complex topic for me. Leaders should take time to understand their team and discover what motivates them. One example is that some people may react positively to being praised and acknowledged, while others need tangible rewards like bonuses or extra responsibilities.
To empower and value employees, I will also encourage open communication and collaboration. Furthermore, I would strive to provide meaningful feedback that focuses on the employee’s strengths and how they can use those talents even more effectively. In closing, my goal is to encourage personal growth opportunities such as trainings and educational seminars that will inspire employees, and allow them to reach their professional potential.
My goal is to gather information from my team by conducting frequent surveys, one-on-1 conversations and other forms of communication. They will then be able to freely share their opinions in a space that’s free from bias or judgment. This will give me insight into what drives each individual’s performance so I can develop tailored motivational strategies accordingly.
