My goal as a leader of my team is simple – I want to be their favorite client.
I work with a team of contractors (not employees) so I am not their boss – I’m their client.
And if I am their favorite client I know I’m on the right track.
I know that I’m treating them well.
I know that they are getting to do work they enjoy and have opportunities they may not find elsewhere.
I know that I’m respecting their time and not asking for unrealistic deadlines and last minute tasks.
I know that I’m paying them well for what they bring to the table.
I know THEY know how much I value the time, energy and effort they invest in support of my business.
If I am NOT their favorite client then I need to take a look at my leadership and see where I need to shift/grow.
That’s how I choose to measure my success as a leader.
** An Invitation **
If you are interested in leadership I invite you to join me for a brand new webinar I’m doing lovingly entitled:
“3 Ways Your Leadership Style May Be Inadvertently Sabotaging Your Team”
I’m going to get real on this webinar – and perhaps a little edgy – because there are simply too many people struggling on both sides of the coin. As leaders and as team members… and that needs to change.
