Thinking and Feeling
Effective leadership is centered on motivation, which is needed to enable employees to use the best of their capabilities to do their work for the well-being of businesses. In that case, it is highly crucial for businesses to not just focus on maximizing both capital utilization and profit maximization, but also on ensuring the contentment and encouragement employees need for them to do better. After all, leadership must not focus entirely on getting things done – a matter that is entirely addressed by management, but also highlight the role of employees as central figures in businesses. Such must therefore involve the creation of leadership plans specific to the peculiarities of employees of businesses. The avoidance of one-size-fits-all leadership approaches is key to the treatment of employees as important agents in businesses. At the same time, businesses must fine-tune the various ways they employ in gauging what their employees feel. In that way, employees would be able to gain the proper motivation they need from effective leadership exerted by the businesses hiring them.
Doing and Watching
What businesses should do is to immerse themselves more into what encourages many of their employees – their interests, learning patterns and general motivations for success. In doing so, it is important to conduct experiments on leadership via different approaches, based on what businesses learn on the general motivations of their employees. At the same time, it is also important for businesses to keep being observant when it comes to the things that their employees want. For instance, if the work involved requires enough exercise good enough to strengthen endurance during a daily 8-hour working schedule, businesses must make sure that they provide exercise programs for their employees. It is essential, therefore, for businesses to do what they need to do when it comes to leading their employees to the right track that is good for both their personal and professional well-being, as well as watching them to learn how they can be motivated further.
Feel and Do, Feel and Watch
Businesses must make sure that they know how to deal with what their employees feel so that they can both experiment and observe carefully on the salient portions of their leadership plans. Experimentation should have something to do with what employees feel about going to work, going through daily tasks and going home daily. Employees, by the same token, must gain due empowerment in terms of saying what they feel about their work in general, so that businesses would be able to know the best ways to improve their motivation. At the same time, businesses must keep in mind that by observing employees, considerations on their feelings about work must be noted. In that way, businesses would be able to know more about the kind of leadership skills they must utilize to the fullest extent so that their employees would be able to feel personally and professionally fulfilled at work.
Think and Do, Think and Watch
Thinking about what employees need when it comes to work motivation is key to effective leadership. Therefore, businesses should uphold their prerogative in keeping their employees motivated by no less than strategizing on the leadership measures they can experiment and standardize. Through that, employees would be able to maximize their roles in their work through effective leadership – one that focuses on empowering their forte as they constantly feel personally and professionally fulfilled. Businesses, at the same time, must think about what their employees need as leadership measures through observational tools aided by feedback-based data. In that way, employees would be able to empower themselves as well through greater self-expression the greater businesses demand for their feedback for purposes of improving their leadership measures.
