Connection and Context
Companies struggle to create accountability, ownership and leadership at all levels. The perception is that there are people who decide and others that execute. The relationships tend to be unbalanced, communications are mainly one way, the connection between deciders and doers is low. What are the consequences?
Collaborators have low levels of motivation, commitment and engagement. The quality and service standards are average. In a difficult economicalenvironment, the levels of tension and stress build up and paralyse the teams further more.
The truth is, neither the managers nor the collaborators feel happy about the situation. The former don’t feel confident and trusting with their teams and people. The latter don’t feel listened to nor taken into account and develop automated and routine attitudes.
You know what: This can change! Leadership is about creating the Connection and Context that enable change and deliver performance. Connection that enhances open and closer communications and develops relationships. A context that makes it possible to negotiate alliances with collaborators and teams with a shared commitment on common objectives.
Context & Connection. Work on these two key drivers and you will create the team engagement and support you’ve always dreamt of!
