Creating Successful Teams & Partnerships: To Be a Great Leader, Do This!

To be a great leader, you must focus on empowering those around you. Only when you let go of your stories and say everything that matters will you authentically be able to empower those around you. Empowerment will come easy when you dare to say the hard stuff, because you are opening lines of communication.

There many critical factors that go into empowering others. Google did a research project that dug into five decades of research and surveyed their 51,000 employees. There No. 1 factor for successful teams is what is known as psychological safety, a “shared belief held by members of a team that the team is safe for interpersonal risk-taking.”

Thus, it is imperative to break down the imaginary walls you’ve built between you and the people who are looking for you to lead. The people you lead can be at work, but it also can be your family, your group of friends or your spiritual community.
