5 easy mistakes to make and how to avoid making them
We all make mistakes – it is part of being human. However, it is how we recognize and handle our errors that can separate good leaders from really great leaders.
Marcel Schwantes, principal and founder of Leadership From the Core, writes in a recent Inc.com post that there are a “few prevalent leadership mistakes that even the best and smartest leaders tend to make,” including:
– The mistake of not giving employees a listening ear. Those leaders that really listen to their employees build trust and make them feel a part of the culture and workplace “family.”
– The mistake of not giving employees enough information. It is important to keep our employees in the loop when there are changes happening. This will help overall morale – even if the changes taking place aren’t the best news.
– The mistake of not coaching their employees. Just like top athletes have a coach, employees should have good managers.
