Part of being a good leader and manager is to understand that you need to build a work environment that nurtures employees’ commitment to the company. An engaging workplace is your first priority. A good leader makes sure all employees know what is expected of them, and what they can expect from the company’s leadership.
A leader should also lead by example, ensuring that a culture of respect and care is fostered throughout the business, and all aspects of operation are transparent.
Communication is arguably the most elemental characteristic of a good leader. A leader must own the responsibility of communication throughout the firm – ensuring it’s clear and regular. You must behave in a way that develops trust, confidence, understanding, and fosters the relationship between employees and the company.
