"With great power, comes great responsibility.”
Working in a managerial position means you not only have to achieve results but also display several interpersonal skills to keep your employees singing from the same hymn sheet.
How do you make sure this happens?
hiring a leadership speaker to educate and empower your management team can work wonders for your business. In this post, we take a look at what these speakers can teach delegates and how their techniques translate to the workplace.
WHAT ‘GOOD’ & ‘BAD’ MANAGEMENT LOOKS LIKE
Too many managers lack the leadership skills needed to bring the best out of their team. Senior members of a business need to be aware of how their actions impact their employees’ performance and improve their behaviour accordingly.
Examples of ‘Bad’ Management:
- Instilling fear in their employees
- Blaming others for problems
- Taking the credit when it is undeserved
- Using people for selfish gain
- Invalidating employees’ struggles
These characteristics cause friction within teams, ultimately making loyal employees leave which often sets the whole company back. Leadership experts teach managers how to evolve as leaders, creating a better workplace for employees to succeed in their respective roles.
Examples of ‘Good’ Management:
- Investing in employees’ skills
- Listening to their employees
- Offering emotional support
- Giving credit where it is due
- Say “let’s do this” instead of “you do this”
Audiences come away from a leadership expert’s speech with a newfound appreciation for ‘good’ management skills, no matter how trivial they may sound. Even a manager’s language choices can make or break their employees’ motivation: “let’s do this” inspires cohesion, “you do this” singles people out.
HOW SPEAKERS CAN INSPIRE GROWTH IN CORPORATE TEAMS
Managers must nurture greatness in their employees, so they can climb the corporate ladder with confidence. This benefits not only the individual’s progression but the entire business, as staff will be motivated to continue investing in the company’s growth.
With experience in some of the world's biggest brands, leadership speakers equip senior audiences with tools for inspiring professional growth in their team. They discuss the experiences that shaped them as managers, including their journey from junior employee to business director, to relate to and educate their delegates.
WAYS TO IMPROVE SELF-CONFIDENCE
Managers have to convey confidence in their role, but in difficult times it can be a challenging position to maintain. Leadership speakers teach senior business members how to power through adversity and be a role model for their team, via self-confidence techniques.
These speakers understand more than most the difficulties faced by leadership figures, as they have personally experienced the highs and lows of corporate growth. They appreciate that self-doubt and esteem can directly dictate a manager’s ability to lead, so are booked equipped with personal development tips centred around confidence.
