Hello SOTGC community,
Do you think as a manager or act like a leader? Do you want to become a leader in your market? Do you want more customers, more sales, and the ability to engage your team? Then you need to stop thinking like a manager and act like a leader. Does this all sound a bit of a stretch? I used to think so too. But in a short time I found myself overwhelmed with clients wanting to act like a leader. I wasn’t surprised it happened, I was surprised it happened with such abundance. As a manager, it is important to make sure you have strong leadership skills, as well as an understanding of what it takes to be a leader in today’s 21st century business environment. It is equally important to understand that having outstanding leadership skills starts with your own personal development. In order for people to look to you as a leader, you must first see yourself as a leader. Leadership skills are built on knowledge and understanding. Some people may want to build their managerial leadership skills but don’t really know where to begin. That’s okay. In fact, most people need a little guidance when it comes to building their leadership skills. That’s why there is coaching and training for leaders.
These leadership coaches are there to help you navigate through what it means to have strong leadership skills. If you look up news about Connie Pheiff, you will see that I’ve been listed as one of the most famous leadership coaches. I’m somewhat different from other famous life coaches. I focus my clients to embrace a culture of emotional engagement in leadership skills. I coach in a way that is engaging and easy to grasp. For you to be able to understand how to grow your own personal development, you will need to have an understanding of what it truly means to apply personal growth to your leadership skills as a manager. You want your employees to look at you as a leader and treat you with the respect a leader deserves. Some may think that just being given the title of “leader” is enough for people to treat you with the respect a leader deserves. The truth is, respect is not something you are entitled to because of your job title. You must first carry yourself as a leader and treat people with the respect that a leader should give. You want to become someone who is automatically looked to for guidance and leadership.
For example, self-actualization plays a big role in personal development for leadership skills. Self-actualization means that you must first see yourself reaching your full potential and understand that you are capable of achieving anything you set your mind to. When you start to see yourself that way, you become motivated, and you will always have a can-do attitude. This will help you lead the pack when an issue arises, and people will start to automatically look to you for guidance. Confidence is another important part of personal development. You have to have confidence that you deserve the respect your employees are giving you as a leader. If you do not have confidence that you deserve to be respected as a leader, others will not respect you as leader. Having confidence in your leadership skills is a must. Different people may need different things in their personal development to becoming a strong leader. Some may have confidence but have trouble connecting with their employees on an emotional level. This is where understanding emotional engagement can come in handy and choosing to transform your pattern from thinking as a manager and acting like a LEADER. Coaching for leaders is a great thing, because it can help you understand what is needed in your own personal development so that you can grow your leadership skills to be the best manager you can be.
Emotional engagement allows you to connect with people on a more intimate level. It is proven that people respond better in the work place when they are happy and feel respected. Engaging with people at a more personal level will make them feel like you understand and you can relate to them. In return, they will be more understanding to your needs and more willing to do what you ask of them.
