Leadership: It’s All About The Small Things.

Leadership Instincts

Leadership isn’t so much about the big things, big events, and big moments. It is all about consistently recognizing the “small” things because over time the small things become the big things, events, moments. 

Here are four of those small things that one should try paying attention to.

What’s the Why?

One of the “small” things that one should regularly incorporate into the team culture is the “why.”  Explain why we have a particular area of focus, why that area of focus may be changing, why you are providing feedback, etc.  There are times that individuals don’t agree with the “why” but they all readily acknowledge that they appreciate the transparency.


Sharing Successes

Another “small” thing is sharing successes as they happen.  Achieving a business goal does not happen overnight, rather, there are several milestones along the way and taking time to focus on those successes rewards the right behavior and motivates the team to keep achieving!

Expressing Genuine Appreciation

Along with sharing the success, another “small” thing is to genuinely express appreciation for the hard work that is driving the success.


Incorporating Daily Fun

And last but not least, always ensure a bit, or more than a bit, of fun is included.  Individuals spend a tremendous amount of time at work, and with team members, so incorporating as much fun into daily activities continues to foster a high performing, cohesive, amicable team!
