1. Empathy in the workplace: how to better understand your employees
In the workplace, empathy can help you better understand your employees' needs and motivations. It can help you better connect with your teams at an emotional level and build trust.
This can lead to more productive communication and, ultimately, higher performance or everyone involved.
2. Communication as a success factor: How to build trust
Communication is a critical factor in building trust in the workplace. By improving your communication, you can create a more productive and collaborative environment. Remember to listen actively, express yourself clearly and concisely, and use positive language when communicating with your employees.
3. Conflict as an opportunity: how to strengthen the team through successful solutions
Conflicts are a natural part of professional life and must be seen as an opportunity to work well together in the company. When resolved successfully, they can help your team work better together. Instead of focusing on the problem, team members should look ahead and focus on the solution. Finding solutions collaboratively builds the nurturing ground to let new ideas and perspectives emerge. As a leader, you should take an active role in this process.
4. Make clear decisions: How you as a leader provide guidance
Clear and quick decisions are an important part of appreciative leadership. They create guidance and enable the team to work more effectively and achieve better results. When decisions are unclear or not communicated, it can lead to confusion and frustration among the team. Make sure the decision-making process is transparent and based on facts and data. You should also be prepared to make decisions when they are needed and communicate them clearly. The trick is to have the courage to make decisions even when not all the information is available, to not procrastinate and to not hide behind details.
5. Agility in turbulent times: How to act successfully as a leader even in uncertain times
Especially in uncertain times, flexibility is important to respond quickly to change. Be open to change and foster an agile culture by encouraging your team to try new ideas and adapt to change. Open communication and regular feedback loops can also help the team respond quickly to change.
Don't forget that your employees also want flexibility, especially when it comes to home office or remote work.
