If you know your company can benefit from employees that are loyal, responsible and hardworking, you are probably seeking ways to make that happen. While your hiring decisions do affect the type of candidates that come onboard, your role as a leader doesn’t end after the onboarding process.
The workplace is ever changing, and ways of managing talent have to adapt in order to keep up with innovations and changes. Currently, the instant dissemination of information, the ability to work from anywhere and globalisation are some of the most important trends impacting organisations and their employees.
Being a manager is never an easy job, but being a new manager is especially difficult. Whether you have just been promoted to a leadership position or have switched jobs and started managing a new team, this career move comes with certain challenges.
Do you want to be a simple manager or a highly effective leader? Do you want to be followed by your staff members only because they have to, or do you want to command respect by your actions and empower employees with your skills and commitment?
Meetings are important in order for managers to get together with their teams, bounce around ideas, collaborate and promote a positive corporate culture. Why then do most employees and leaders both dread meetings?
Team building activities and events should be interwoven in your company culture. Effective teamwork has been proven to offer a myriad of benefits to your organisation, such as more productivity, higher sales, better team cohesion, happier company culture, less employee turnover and more loyal employees.
