At World Famous Events, our leaders are focused on our people and helping them succeed. When our team members excel and get what they need from their work, then the company as a whole is successful. Here are some suggestions on leading with authenticity and integrity:
• Tell the Truth: Transparency is a significant cornerstone to building trust and leading with integrity because if your team knows they can trust you to tell them the good and the bad, they will also trust you to help them through tough spots.
• Trust Your Team: Tell your associates what you want them to do, share your values and how they apply to your team, and then trust them to do the right thing. At World Famous Events, our leaders know that no one likes a micromanager and so they trust our associates to do their work productively and proactively.
• Don’t Try to Control: As a leader, it’s your responsibility to set the direction and make a detailed strategy, but each person’s specific objectives should be left to them to manage. Encourage them to reach out to you if they’re having a problem, but otherwise, let them control how they get their work done.
Being a heart-centered leader is a great way to build a positive team and upbeat company atmosphere, but it also takes truly being authentic to yourself and your leadership style and trusting that you have the right people on your team.
