1. Leadership, it’s not about you
“Helping employees thrive and to develop and grow into high performers is my strategy and focus as a leader.” – Shanda Miller
2. The Foundation of a High Performance Team
It is good for leaders to build relationships with their team, and encouraging team members to build relationships among themselves
3. The #1 Thing That Will Distinguish You As A Leader – Purpose
Having a vision and a mission is what defines a leader – And the best way to achieve that vision is through a strategic plan that includes objectives and goals. Then, every day, based on your strategic plan, decide what is the most important thing you need to work on.
4. Poor Team Performance Doesn’t Mean You Have a Bad Team
“The truth is, it’s rare that bad performance is due to either a lack of competence or a bad attitude. Instead it’s usually due to unclear or un-communicated expectations, or a lack of training and skills.” – Shanda Miller
5. Most Feedback Is Missing One Critical Component – Expectations
Providing effective feedback begins with setting clear expectations, and all feedback should link back to a previously communicated expectation
