Being an effective leader is all about developing, developing how you learn, lead and love those who look to you for leadership. For almost two decades I have been involved in leadership and leading teams. And what I have observed in my leadership and other great leaders I have studied is that people respond when you C.A.R.E.
The most effective leaders CREATE environments where individuals can grow, develop and flourish in their given fields.
Great leaders ASSESS their teams to ensure they have the tools to perform their best; they are always looking to give their team the right equipment.
In my experience you need to RELEASE your team, micro-managing those you lead will foster distrust and make them feel belittled.
Lastly, look for the opportunity to ENCOURAGE, even when a person makes a mistake, look for the training opportunity and be able to still see the value
