Leadership Tip of the Month by Ron Jasniowski


 

Are Great Achievers Born Great Achievers?

When I ask this question in my one-day seminars, some people reply yes and some reply no. If the correct answer is yes, managers can't have much of an impact on employee performance. People would be hopelessly locked into their own level of performance. The good news is everyone is born with varying degrees of talents, but all talents must be developed! Those fortunate enough to have wise mentors have a definite advantage.

 

Most managers have no idea of their potential to help employees improve. Your employees will make you look good if you help them develop their untapped potential. This is especially true if you can help them improve in character traits they are weak in (traits such as: dependability, initiative and thoroughness).

 

This can be done in your employee meetings by incorporating a few minutes of discussion on the character trait of the month. Hanging posters with definitions of the character trait of the month also helps. And most importantly, don’t forget to reinforce behavior you want repeated by praising people for the character traits they practice!

 

If you are serious about turning ordinary people into extraordinary employees, feel free to ask me for more in-depth information and about reinforcement materials.

 

Future issues will provide you with more details on how you can reach the next level of leadership success.

 

You may want to print this and discuss it at your next leadership team meeting.
