My kind of LeaderMarch 19, 2021 12:44 pm
Want to be a great leader in 2021? ⭐
Don’t be too blunt with your employees right now. Show a little kindness instead. 😇
With a pandemic still raging, kids at home, a feeling of being stuck…it’s not surprising people are anxious and stressed 🥺. Telling someone they need to up their game may not improve productivity or help your team gel.
Here’s how to put the kindness into your leadership style:
- Be kind regardless of what you get back. 🙏
In work we can sometimes choose to be kind because we expect something in return. As a leader, focus solely on being kind for the sake of it.
- Put yourself in their shoes. 👞
Take the time to really listen and understand your staff’s fears, dreams and worries.
- Plan how you’ll deliver difficult news with kindness 💔
Sometimes people need to hear something they won’t like. Find the right way to show kindness when doing this. Ask yourself what support you can give.
- Be deliberate, not random 🎁
Random acts of kindness are great on the internet. In the workplace, consistency counts – so make it a business ethos.
Feeling not just included but valued at work can make a huge difference to someone’s wellbeing right now. 💖
