Every good leader is concerned that the members of his team constantly take on new challenges; Doing so will not only improve the performance of the group, but will make them grow as professionals and keep them inspired.
2. LISTEN. Start talking less and listening more, so you will realize the valuable insights and learning you can get from your peers. In addition, listening is an excellent opportunity to receive feedback, because as much as you think you have everything under control and are doing an excellent job, the perception of them may be different.
3. MEET YOUR TEAM. You know perfectly what each member of your team does; but do you really know them? You should not only set aside time to meet your work goals, but also take a moment to get to know your collaborators. Knowing what they feel, what they need, and what their career goals are will help you understand them and understand how you can help them.
4. RECOGNIZE YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS: Don’t be the type of professional who likes to take credit for the accomplishments of others. Recognize the work of others and thank them, this will make them have more initiative and validate that they are doing their tasks well.
