Why Leadership is Crucial and How to Obtain More

By | February 23, 2019

[February 23, 2019]  The largest companies that have a very prominent public image have leadership styles that are known by the general public. For instance, Google is known for introducing things such as co-working spaces and cafeterias that feature gourmet food in an environment that fosters self-sufficiency.

What this means is that Google isn’t exactly known for having bosses that breathe down every worker’s neck. They’re all monitored, but they are also given room to grow, meet, and exceed standards. With that said, your own company needs to adopt a leadership style that has been proven to work on all fronts. When it comes to success, there is no such thing as too much leadership. Here’s why your company needs more of it and how more leadership is good for business in the long run.

What Is Your Company’s Leadership Style?

Think of all of the major players at your company today; the executives, the owners, upper-level management, and human resources supervisors. Although they all do important things, there is very likely some sort of pecking order. Who is in charge of what departments, and ultimately, who do they report to? If you have a company with a leadership style that works, communication is good, employees are going to be easy to retain, and profits will at the very least be stable. If any of these things seem out of order to you, the leadership style at your company might need to be overhauled.

Where Can Your Company Go with Additional Leadership?

Companies with effective leaders attract great talent. They are the companies that skilled employees want to work at because they offer a pleasant work environment. The businesses with the most effective leadership roles end up out-earning their competitors, moving into new markets and becoming more successful.

With more and better leadership, there is no limit as to how your company can grow. Remember that success begins with a good idea, but it is leadership that fosters results. If you want a company that forges ahead, you need solid leadership.

Why Is it Vital to Identify and Define Leadership Roles?

Just as everyone at your company has a job, leaders have very clear roles. You needn’t have a step-by-step outline of what all the leaders at your business do, but there should be a couple of leaders who work hard to boost morale and keep the entire team motivated. Then, other leaders might strictly be responsible for looking at raw data and numbers, essentially keeping mid-level management on their toes. Leaders are supposed to be inspiring in the end. When each leadership role is identified and defined, there will be no in-fighting and a lot more progress made during meetings.

It is possible to hire a good manager but developing said person into a leader takes lots of time. Leaders are experienced and they greatly enjoy meeting and overcoming huge challenges. Ensure that you have enough leaders on your team to keep your business stable.

      Hi Scotty, it’s funny how changing one thing could have a profound effect (for the better) on an individual’s productivity. I’m glad you enjoyed my article too 🙂

    Rosana. Very good article. I would like to make one comment that I do disagree with. You said, “Just as everyone at your company has a job, leaders have very clear roles.” Leaders, in my opinion, often do not have clear roles. That is one of the reasons we have them in the first place. Everything is not obvious and not clear. Leaders must use their experience and intelligence to sort out problems and issues. Just my thoughts.

      Good point Max. Yes, good article by Rosana. But your point (which I was also about to make) is that leadership is about creating structure from the chaos around us. Rules for what they do are not always written. That is sometimes why leaders get screwed up and make mistakes. Good thinking here.

      Hi Max, I completely understand your point of view. I can definitely agree that not everything is crystal clear and that leaders need to make the right decisions to solve problems.

    A company’s public image is important and that is just one reason we have a focus on good leadership. Thanks for writing this blog post. Very informative.

      Yes I completely agree, good leadership will always benefit the company as a whole, not just their public image. Glad you enjoyed my article.
