9 Leadership behaviours that build commitment

We like to think we’re committed. That our team are committed. People who are committed show up, follow through and stick with it. The more commitment you have, the greater productivity and momentum you can generate to get the job done and lead people through transition and change. Commitment means team strength.

We want others to see us as smart, capable and positive so we ‘look good’ and look like we ‘have it all together’.

My 8-year-old son Alex is right into skateboarding. On Tuesday’s we head to a skate park after school. Today he spent a solid hour on two small ramps, practicing balancing his weight distribution to go up and down over each ramp. Watching him do the same thing over and over again, with a few falls in between, I was reminded of the simple […]

How to set clear expectations in a way that builds trust and psychological safety across your direct team

As a leader, you’ve probably struggled or been challenged in a relationship with a direct report at some point. I hear leaders talking about personality differences or communication problems. These issues often mask the real problem – misaligned expectations. Expectations can ruin relationships, especially when the expectations are not communicated, understood and agreed.  It’s easy to make assumptions about what […]
