The Importance of Leadership to Your Business; Especially Now
As we navigate through these challenging times, leadership becomes more critical to the survival of all businesses.
Leadership is probably the most critical at the start-up of a business, or when it is experiencing financial difficulty. It has been said that great leaders are born, not made but we believe that it is possible to gain the skills required to be a great leader through education and training.
Leadership is about guiding and directing. Leaders see the "big picture" and encourage and inspire people. In difficult times like these, they are aware of the impact to their managers and employees, as well as their business.
Leaders practice Risk Management on a daily basis and have a "Plan B" in the case of something detrimental happening to the business, by having a well-trained workforce, with people in leadership roles to keep the business operational.
In good times, businesses need leadership to thrive. If you look at successful leaders, they have something in common. They know how to negotiate, and how to compromise.
Negotiation is required to get their point across as well as determine the other person's viewpoint. It should result in a win, win solution. It may involve compromising to arrive at the best solution, where both parties feel heard and their opinions respected.
As our province resumes business, things will get better. Leadership skills are necessary and valuable now, and will continue to be in the future. These skills will assist you in the recovery of your business and assist you in going forward.
