The 6 Critical Practices for Leading a Team™
Crucial insights for every leader.
Leaders at every level make a significant impact on every metric in your business: employee productivity and engagement, customer satisfaction and loyalty, innovation, and financial performance. Leaders are the “Difference-Makers” in your business.
From first-level leaders to those in the executive suites, the role of a leader has always been tough – and today’s realities make it even tougher. People skills typically account for 80 percent of success in this role. Yet many people are promoted into leadership because of their technical capabilities, without mastering the skills of managing and motivating others. Without these basic skills, leaders at every level can struggle with leading teams in today’s workplace.
The 6 Critical Practices for Leading a Team™ is a special collection of relevant, practical resources that provide leaders with the mindsets, skillsets and toolsets needed to excel in their critical roles of leading others effectively.
