WHAT SHOULD A LEADER DO?
ANSWER - Break down those barriers. Some approaches that make sense.
- Create consensus - everyone “rowing in the same direction”
- Create a culture of active listening (which helps in creating consensus) Leaders need to participate in discovery, process, and solution of the goals/projects.
- Remove roadblocks - wish I would have understood this earlier in my management career.
THE TEAM MUST WANT TO SUCCEED!
Alignment to the goals is key. Verifying that your team is in alignment is tougher. Ask the tough questions, set definable benchmarks, and hold the team accountable.
