Are you in a new leadership position? Even though you don’t feel different in a management role, you’re perceived differently precisely because you are a manager – because you now have power and authority over other people’s positions. How do you adjust to this?
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- Leading a team is not about finding friends. It’s about harnessing the strengths and talents of everybody. Notice what you say. People only have your behavior and your words to assess – they don’t have anything else. Because you’re in a leadership role it has more weight.
- Notice how you show up. Leaders have more responsibility to pay attention to the words that they use and the behaviors that they exhibit. If you have people on your team that you prefer to spend time with, then you have to integrate everybody else.
- Watch who reaches out to you and the others who are really quiet. Notice the relationship you have a closeness with and be honest with yourself. How would others feel?
