As a leader, you create the culture that either helps your teams thrive––or barely survive. Obviously, no leader intentionally stalls or stymies a team. But even the best leaders occasionally make mistakes that freeze their people rather than free them to excel. Here’s how that happens:

Avoid These 5 Mistakes Leaders Make That Cripple Teams

What kind of impression are you making in the first 30-seconds of meeting someone new? That is the most powerful question you should be asking yourself when you have a goal to expand your network and drive more business to your bottom line.  Successful entrepreneurs and corporate executives have one thing in common, they enjoy a robust network. 

In a world where someone can walk into a restaurant, shopping mall, or school and open fire on hundreds of innocent people, where jobs disappear overnight, where cancer appears suddenly on a scan, people grasp for order, stability, and control.

They demand the same from communication coming to them––the email, instruction, or announcement should make sense for them personally. Generic messages about change get ignored.

Be Specific and Concrete

Leaders use the following vague statements in many different scenarios––with a multitude of meanings.

Clark, my client, stopped by our office unexpected:  “I have good news and bad news. The good news first. . . . A couple of partners and I just bought a small telecom—a spinoff of the division I managed before we all got laid off.”

“Sounds like great news,”  I said.

“Maybe. If we can make a go of it.”

“The bad news?”

Empowered consumers, radical transparency across value chains and a generation of consumers that breath technology like air are just a few factors that underpin the changes ahead.
