I have worked in aged and community sectors for over 15 years.
One thing that is very evident is that everyone who has worked in the industry has a ‘war story’.
If it hasn’t happened to them, they know someone that has been effected by poor leadership.
Leading a team is not just about providing direction and delegating work.
Truly effective leaders need to recognize the unique strengths of each team member and really optimize all those natural talents.
It’s all about listening, paying attention, identifying each person’s strength and then managing around those essential skills.
Grow your own!
You may just see increased productivity, improved performance and higher employee engagement and retention.
