Leading People Resources

Ignoring underperformance can lead to a decline in team morale along with a decline in trust and respect for a leader who is afraid to make tough calls.
Leading from a place of desperation is not a sustainable or effective leadership style. Instead, those leading by invitation create a culture of collaboration and shared responsibility, where everyone’s voice is heard, and where team members are empowered to contribute to the organisation’s success.
It is important for leaders to be able to distinguish between ‘disagreeable’ and ‘toxic’ team members. After all, disagreeable employees can often bring valuable skills and perspectives to a team or organisation, and they can also be highly effective in certain roles.
While empathy can be extremely helpful for building strong relationships with team members and understanding their needs and concerns, it’s certainly not the only factor that determines a leader’s success.
Remote coaching can be a very effective way for leaders to develop their skills and achieve their personal goals. By providing flexibility, convenience, access to top coaches, and valuable data tracking and analysis, virtual coaching can be a compelling alternative to face-to-face coaching.
Leaders should never attempt a one-size-fits-all approach to motivating their team members. When it comes to motivating individuals, a cookie cutter approach doesn’t typically work. It’s very possible to keep team members highly motivated even in the absence of extrinsic rewards.

Women have unique perspectives, skills, and experiences valuable to any organisation, yet are underrepresented in leadership roles. Investing in women leaders through mentorship, flexibility, development, inclusivity, and leadership opportunities is not only the right thing to do, but a smart business decision.
Effective team management requires balancing skills, abilities, personalities and roles, and resolving conflicts in a timely manner. Astrology has no place in recruitment or conflict resolution.
