andAt this time of year Top 10 Lists become very popular. While it's not scientifically, or statistically, validated, here is a synthesis of the top 10 leadership learnings I have heard team leaders mention this year in the thousands of hours of training, coaching and facilitation work I have done since January.
These are in no order but key activities I have heard this year for team leaders to undertake are:
Team meetings (effective ones that are usually more concise and action oriented!)
One-on-one time with team members
Special committee time
Regular performance feedback (positive and constructive)
Mentoring others (formally and informally - within and outside of the team)
Coaching Team members
Personal and professional development so they can be at their best
Collaborating with other teams
and time with boss and stakeholders
(and of course... more meetings!)
So it's a little more than 10 AND we all know how a team leaders role is never always within nice neat boundaries.
What activities would you put in your top 10 list of key activities from 2015? Which ones gave you the most impact this year? Which ones would you like to do more of in 2016? Less of?
Enjoy these next few days of quieter time!
