Hi [[firstname]], welcome back. 

One of the most important qualities of a great 
leader for the future will be his or her ability 
to get along with people, to show compassion, and 
to make others feel confident about their work 
and their lives. 

If you’re currently in a leadership roll or you 
have aspirations of team leadership, don’t pass 
up reading this week’s bulletin, "Team Leadership."

Have a nice day, keep the faith, and stay connected.

TEAM LEADERSHIP 

Here are 5-basics on how to develop strong 
relationships that are so crucial to your success as 
a leader: 

1. Ask each employee what he/she most values, and begin 
to set company goals to support these important aspects 
of the lives of your employees. 

2. Help people reach their full potential by catching 
them doing something great! Compliment them on their 
successes, even if they are minute. 

3. Distribute a monthly company newsletter, whose sole 
purpose is to recognize and congratulate the "wins and 
wows" of your employees. 

People love to be recognized for their accomplishments, 
and this will instill a sense of pride in your 
employees. 

4. Host one fun day each month. Take employees to lunch, 
to a matinee, or host a party outside of the office. 
This one day off will rejuvenate your employees and 
build loyalty to the organization. 

5. Build consensus by allowing employees to vote on 
changes within the company. 

When it comes to motivating people, nothing is more 
powerful than dealing with others honestly and 
recognizing individual efforts and achievement. These 
5 tips are crucial for mastering the important elements 
of exemplary leadership:

1. Deal with conflict by being upfront and honest. Own 
up to your role in the conflict and move toward 
resolution as quickly as possible. If you have been 
wrong, state it, followed by an extension of an apology. 

2. Eliminate company gossip from your life, and keep 
all employee concerns confidential. If you need support 
for company gossip, hire a coach who has a reputation 
of being trustworthy to act as a sounding board.

3. Trust your employees to make smart decisions without 
your interference. Self-esteem is built by allowing 
others the opportunity to try new things and to be 
successful by adding their personal touch to a project 
or assignment. 

4. Provide work that is meaningful and that allows your 
employees and/or volunteers the opportunity to stretch 
and grow, and above all, provide the training necessary 
for implementing a change. 

The training of people will be crucial to your ability 
to move into the future. Add a coach to your team or 
visit the American Society of Training and Development 
(www.astd.org) to find an expert near you. 

5. Cheer the company on by announcing on a daily basis 
the successes of the previous day. Make this 
announcement public and filled with enthusiasm!

Courage, encouragement, honesty and open 
communications are four ingredients, when used daily, 
can maximize your leadership potential and support 
you in growing employee loyalty.
