What’s the best way to impact your team? Start by noticing the strengths of those around you.
Successful leaders realize that for people to be most productive, they need opportunities in their work environment. When you, the leader, become more aware of individual’s needs, values, and skills, you are able to motivate and energize that team member into accomplishing both personal and organizational goals. For instance:
If a team member is a “D” – they want support for their goals and objectives. Ask questions to allow them to discover things rather than being told. You can provide alternative actions if you include probabilities of their success backed by facts.
If your team member is an “I” – Let them talk about their opinions and goals. Don’t hurry the discussion Try not to argue as an “I” does not like to lose arguments. When you reach agreement, be sure you both agree on the specifics.
If you have a “S” team member – Make sure this person knows you are interested in them as a person. Allow time for them to share personal objectives along with their personal opinions and feelings. They are risk averse, so offer personal assurances of support.
If you have a “C” team member – Try to support this person’s organized, thoughtful approach. List advantages and disadvantages of any plan you propose and have viable alternatives for the disadvantages. Give them time to verify your words and actions. Do not rush the decision-making process.
One way to consistently impact others is to go one step further and acquire a competence in identifying these differences in people; treat them the way they want to be treated.
The result? Greater productivity and satisfaction in all your relationships.
