An ever-changing world demands dynamic leadership for organizations and employees to survive and prosper but the reality is, not everyone is a natural-born leader. Fortunately, leadership development is possible with the right opportunities and proper guidance.
With the help of a trusted HR firm, employees can be upskilled to inspire the mind and upgrade skill sets required to ensure their success. To help your organization, here are some ways to develop dynamic leadership, especially amid a pandemic:
Find coaches who can lead by example
Over 70% of individuals who receive coaching improve their work performance, relationships, and communication skills. However, coaches are not meant to be subject experts, they are mentors who ask the right questions to help get individuals to their desired destination, assisting people in adapting to inevitable career changes.
A great coaching provider would provide scalable solutions aligned to your company values. Embracing a coaching culture also allows companies to have faster employee onboarding, increased productivity, and higher engagement.
Learning should be viewed as an investment
Research shows that 74% of workers felt that they were not achieving their full potential due to the lack of development opportunities. For organizations, it is best to remember that constant change should also mean continuous learning and improvement.
While reskilling or retraining leaders would incur costs, these should be viewed more as investments. Similar to purchasing new buildings or machines, the benefits would largely outweigh the pay in future-proofing your workforce.
Uphold the value of accountability
Lack of transparency and accountability could result in employees’ low engagement and high turnover. This is why being accountable for one’s weaknesses and mistakes is a timeless value every leader must uphold. Through effective coaching, the importance of accountability should be reiterated for sustained behavior development or change.
In the end, COVID-19 is still changing the game for businesses and brands. Now is the time to reimagine our approach in attracting, sustaining, and developing talents. Great leaders are always evolving, just like how great organizations should be.
