Ever wondered how to assess the success of your leadership?

The following 6 habits focus on achieving any form of success and the steps to get there so that you can get unstuck from outdated leadership methods and become the leader you always wanted to be. If you’ve wanted to coach your team rather than manage them, these habits will likely help you get there.

Be Clear (Not Just In Your Own Head)
Clarity is the essential element to developing autonomous, highly engaged teams. Leaders must be clear not only about what they mean but also about their expectations and the results they want. Slowing down long enough to consider clarity yields tremendous gains.

Teach Them To Fish For Solutions (Don’t Solve Their Problems)

Teach team members to find their own solutions instead of solving problems for them. Independence emerges when individuals learn to solve problems and take responsibility. Coaching independence transforms a leader’s mindset, challenging the comfort of problem-solving, and the need to be needed. While it may feel threatening to shift from solving to coaching, fostering independence ultimately frees leaders for strategic thinking.

Take Responsibility (Stop Blaming)
We find leaders sometimes blaming their teams out of frustration over not achieving desired results. Yet, they find it so rewarding when they become clearer on what actions they can take in working with their teams to successfully achieve the results they want. That’s a good thing.

Let Go (Responsibly)
Trust is leadership’s superpower. Only leaders know the capability of their team members. When leaders invest time into understanding these capabilities and give time and space for their practice, then it becomes easier to trust which requests need action and those better left for the team. When leaders trust their team and think the best of them, there’s more time to actually lead and even more time for other things you’d like to do.

Motivate More (Help Less)
When their team requests help, leaders need to question (ten times more often)—do they really need my help? By understanding how to respond to situations and communicate with their team, leaders will avoid the behavior patterns that create a dependent workforce that always looks up to leadership for their needs.

Level Your Team (Stop Training Them To Look Up)

If a team member is constantly looking up to somebody in control, an authority-based rather than a team-based approach is at work. When team members are free from looking up, they have more awareness to do their job.

By cultivating these six habits, you will create an autonomous, accountable workforce through better relationships, and create team members who are happier and more successful both inside and outside of the office.
