An employee regardless of position has the capacity to become a leader. So does a manager, business owner and executive. The delivery truck driver, customer service rep all have the capacity to become a leader. Leadership has nothing to do with title.
An organization develops competitive advantage when all employees are trained to be leaders rather than subservient.
Permit employees to circumvent their supervisors without reprisals with ideas and problems to eliminate bottlenecks and protective silos.
One of the strongest traits to develop in all employees and executives is the injection of passion and an impatience for action.
Teach employees to work preemptively on their weaknesses.
Identify achievable goals taking action today.
Seek opportunities to teach employees and coworkers to paint a vision of the purpose of their work.
Make execution the modus operandi of the department.
Lift one another. As one goes so does all.
Make hard work fun.
Seek new ways of doing even great work better everyday. Make this the new culture. Get more ideas here. Jim
