Clarity and direction are crucial components of my leadership style. I believe that when employees understand their role in the organization, what they need to deliver, and how their efforts fit into the bigger picture, they are better equipped to focus their efforts on the tasks that matter most. This clarity leads to more meaningful and productive work.
As a leader, I make it a priority to communicate my expectations and goals to team members. I want them to have a clear understanding of their role and how their work aligns with their peers, the company’s mission and vision, and their job description. This alignment helps everyone understand their purpose, and feel that they are contributing to the greater good. As a result, employees are more motivated, engaged, and productive, leading to better outcomes for the organization.
Aligning the vectors…
I understand the importance of providing regular feedback and adjusting my plans as necessary. I also make sure that the team has the resources and support they need to succeed.
Clarity and direction are essential for my leadership, because I tend to be very trusting and give responsibilities without micro-managing. By providing clear expectations and ongoing support, I try to empower employees to find purpose in their work and contribute to the success of the organization.
If you want to optimize for clarity and direction rather than making people feel good, you need to understand that saying nice things for the sake of it, is actually counterproductive. People don’t feel good because of what you say. People feel good when they find purpose. Help them find purpose and that will compound on the long run!
Finally, displaying clarity and direction means that you need to make a conscious effort to assess your own comprehension of the vision and direction of the company. Are you actually setting your team on the right track? Are you aligning your team with other teams?
