Goals, action plans, targets, and deadlines are fundamental building blocks for any successful endeavor. In the day-to-day life of a business, these elements must also align with the personal expectations of staff. Unfortunately, managers often struggle with how to effectively support, motivate, and engage their teams. However, it’s worth noting that great leaders aren’t born overnight.
My personal professional experiences, combined with a lack of leadership during my active business career, led me on a quest for answers to questions about values, inspiration, team awareness, and values-based leadership. Over the course of nearly 15 years in the business world, I’ve come across many critical moments that have shaped my professional journey which I refer to as “moments of truth”. As a team manager in the transport-logistics sector, I regularly interacted with clients from diverse backgrounds and countries, which instilled in me a natural desire to gain a deeper understanding of the business world. I sought answers to questions such as how successful initiatives are executed, what motivates people to act and collaborate, and why some relationships endure and earn trust, while others crumble. It was during my three-year psychology degree that I explored these questions in depth.
I firmly believe that everyone deserves a good manager who can serve as a true leader. Under such leadership, it becomes possible to develop conscious businesses and foster values-based collaborations (the “Values-Based Leadership” workbook for leaders and their teams is an invaluable resource in this regard). My personal experience and knowledge have inspired me to share methods with other managers and their teams that help each individual understand their own essence and purpose, and to act in a manner that promotes teamwork, motivation, and accountability. My objective is to assist managers in creating an exceptional working environment that brings out the best in their team members, thereby fostering genuine results and long-term relationships both within and outside of the organization.
The manager, whether good or bad, has a significant impact on the organizational processes such as employee engagement, productivity, turnover, and profitability. In today’s hybrid work environment, finding truly effective solutions can often prove challenging.
