Leadership Effectiveness = Business Success

Leadership effectiveness is directly correlated to business success. Want to accelerate your impact? According to research by The Leadership Circle focus on the top three correlations to leadership effectiveness: 
  1. Purposeful & Visionary- Live and work with a deep sense of meaning and stay focused on envisioned results even in the face of obstacles. 
  2. Fostering Team Play- Create a positive climate that supports people doing their best.
  3. Mentoring and Developing- Support the learning and career goals of your direct reports.
And, minimize the top three negative correlations by being less passive, distant or critical. Strive to:
  • Advocate your ideas, be more decisive and address conflict gracefully
  • Connect and truly care about your peers, colleagues and team members  
  • Shift focus from "what is wrong?" to "what is going on?"
