Everything a business owner needs to start, grow, or exit a business. Grow With Us.
As a Business Owner, entrepreneur, Manager you discover that in order to scale your businesses you people. And not just people, you need the right people. How do you get it right? By employing a diverse group of people that are hired for their unique talents and skills. Employing people is without a doubt one of the biggest investments you will make in your business.
Initially investing time and resources to find the right fit for each unique role, then it’s about continuing their development and equipping them in such a way that you can ultimately delegate and have the business run without us. Sounds like a pretty sweet deal doesn’t it?
Having your people operate from their strengths and know their roles-- both of which are critical for the overall success of a business,- something magical happens. As Jack Welch states, “Before you were a leader it was about growing yourself, now that you are the leader it is about growing others”, no truer word said.
Show Objectives - The Why
When it comes to leadership and growing our people into leaders themselves it is important to create diversity within your team, develop good structures, SOP’s and regular feedback processes. You want clarity, confidence, communication and commitment to be at the forefront of your Business.

Why? As a base you need to understand yourself before leading others. By understanding where you have clarity and focus it becomes easier to coach your team.

The Six Emotional Leadership Styles are
Four of these styles:
3. Affiliative, and ...
... promote harmony and positive outcomes, ...
while two styles
1. Coercive and ...
. ... can create tension, and should only be used in specific situations.
Goleman and his co-authors say that no one style should be used all of the time. Instead, the six styles should be used interchangeably, depending on the specific needs of the situation and the people that you're dealing with.
So in summary which style you adapt to will often be in response to the behaviour of others.
