The Three Most Important Keys of Leadership

Studies have shown that trust and confidence in top leadership positions is the single most reliable predictor of employee satisfaction in an organization.

Effective communication in these three areas is critical…

  1. Helping employees understand the company’s overall business strategy.
  2. Helping employees understand how they contribute to achieving key business objectives.
  3. Sharing information with employees on both how the company is doing and how an employees own division or department is doing- relative to strategic business objectives.

Respected Leaders

A respected leader concentrates on three key areas:

  1. “Be”…what he/she is,i.e….beliefs and values.
  2. “Know”…what he/she knows,i.e…job, tasks, human nature.
  3. “Do”…what he/she does,i.e…implement, motivate, and provide direction. …What makes a person follow a leader? People want to be guided by people they respect and who have a clear sense of direction. To gain respect, they must be ethical. A sense of direction is achieved by conveying  a strong vision of the future .
