May 2019

Hello and welcome to the May edition of our 2019 Monthly Leadership Tips: your 'once a month'  'bite-sized' chunks of practical leadership wisdom!

This month's 'Leadership Bite', focuses on a question - 'How did you make your staff feel today?'. How people feel at work is a significant determinant of their motivation, energy and discretionary effort.  And how people feel at work can be significantly affected by the impact their boss has on them in daily interactions. Once again, this Leadership Bite uses the simple format of sharing one of our simple info-visuals,  then it provides a brief overview of the concept, why it is useful and how to apply it. This 'bite' can be saved and printed off as a PDF. Feel free to use it in team meetings, coaching sessions or workshops! We then also share two blogs that we think you'll find of value.

This month we share :
  • Leadership Bites - How did you make your staff feel today?
  • A link to a visual and blog by Gordon Threadgold - Ten things great leaders say that create engaged teams
  • One of our Practical Leadership Actions - How do I support learning and growth?
Found something useful? Why not pay it forward and share a copy with your colleagues! Forward a copy of this email or send this link to join the DiA Monthly Leadership Tips list!

We also use the content we share each month, in the work we do in our consulting practice. Feel free to get in touch to find out more about anything in this newsletter or other blogs on our website.  Enjoy!

Ten things great leaders say that create engaged teams

We recently came across an impactful post on LinkedIN by Gordon Threadgold – this post shared a simple visual and was accompanied by a summary of 10 examples of things great leaders say that create highly engaged teams. Each of them cost nothing – but the returns can be ‘amazing’!

Gordon has kindly given us permission to share a link to his post. Check it out here.

#3: How do I support learning and growth?

We have developed a series of practical leadership actions responsive to major themes that have emerged through our work with over 600 Discovery in Action® (Leading People) program participants.  We have observed six major themes that have consistently emerged as participants have grappled with the question: When do people perform at their best?  This is the third of those - How do I support learning and growth?

Generated through our exposure to on-the-ground leaders as well as various examples from blogs, articles and books, we have built a working set of ideas for each of these themes.
