If you want to be a leader who wants to have a positive impact on the teams you lead, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re a leader who rules with an iron fist, acts on impulse and needs to be the most important person in the room all the time, well…this site is not for you.
You know that the teams that work best actually enjoy their jobs. You know it’s so important to be the kind of leader who is intentional about what you do and how you communicate. Thoughtful leaders think hard about how other people are feeling and the impact that their leadership has on those around them.
Thoughtful leaders bring out the best in their teams. We’ve all been at the mercy of a terrible boss from one time or another and we don’t want to be like them. But how do we make sure we don’t fall into the same patterns that make them such poor leaders? What we do is think more before acting, develop strong communication skills and learn how to lead our teams so that they like coming to work.
The quality of the work is better, your team operates with less stress and has fewer issues. You look like a great leader, because your team is doing great work. That can’t hurt when you’re looking to progress your career.
Thoughtful leadership is not about being everybody’s friend all the time. It is not about always being the nice girl or guy. But if you’re passionate about helping your team thrive and feel good about working for you, then becoming a more thoughtful leader is critical.
