We talk about the importance of visibility and relationships so much in today's leadership world, yet how visible and focused on building genuine relationships have you been recently.
Walkabouts look different according to your location, but involve you getting out and spending time checking in with your team. It may be as quick as a ten minute walking of the floor to stop in and say hi, do a quick touch base to see how projects are going, or take time to find out how one of your team member's coaching work is going.
Walkabouts are about connecting with others, and being available - for questions, problem solving(as needed) and coaching. It's not about micro-management or "checking up on people" which is one perception if trust levels are low.
Are walkabouts being modeled in your organization? How could this benefit your team and relationships?
