A leader that is approachable can alleviate a great deal of potential productivity inhibitors. A leader that is visible and receptive will often hear of ideas, issues, problems, and circumstances that would never come to light otherwise.

Whether it’s solving problems or providing vision and direction leaders can be extremely effective by just being approachable. All too often unproductive situations arise because of poor communications between individuals and/or supervisors.

At times, these communication breakdowns become impasses that hinder productivity. As a result, team members feel there is no path to overcome or circumvent the difficulties.

Leadership Challenge

Take an opportunity this week to work on your approach with others:

  • Are people inspired by you?
  • Are you easy to talk to?
  • What is your body language and tone when communicating with others? (This is really important as body language is 55% of your message and tone is 38%! Your words are only 7%)

Make adjustments this week to be more approachable and comment below on your results. We want to learn from your success!
