Checklist in a new leadership role

Checklist in a new leadership role

Starting in a new leadership role can be daunting; as a leader, your team may be quick to judge what kind of leader you are going to be. If you start off on the wrong foot, it can be really hard to get back on their good side. Make sure you check off the following items if you want to get off to a great start with your new team.

Establish core values
When stepping into a new leadership role, it is important that the team working underneath you understand what you value, particularly in relation to the business setting. If you set clear expectations in the form of the values you want your team to share, it’s a far less demanding and democratic manner of setting boundaries that you want to be respected.

Develop a team environment
A team environment is one that is inclusive of all people in the workplace. Developing an atmosphere where all members feel vital to the efficient functioning of the business is important if you want the most resourceful and effective team.

Sometimes, most of the time, as the leader of a team, it is more important to be a good listener than someone who is good at giving orders. If the team working for you feels like you listen and respect what they feel and say, they are more likely to want to produce a quality performance for you.
