Organisations continue to invest heavily in the development of their workforce but have they got it right, enabling growth and opportunity leading to profit growth.
In order to maximise opportunities, companies need to invest in the soft skills of leadership – the most critical being that of creating the right work environment for their people.
Where employees feel a sense of safety and security created by their leader, there is an increased level of trust, co-operation and loyalty.
It proves that the core role of a leader is to provide a safe environment for their people that builds trust, co-operation and loyalty. It is when these are created that remarkable things happen. Where workers feel secure, there is a combination of talents, strengths and improved results can be seen in all areas of the business leading to increased profits.
It is the leader that sets the tone and workplace environment and if this is right then results will follow. Where the leader sacrifices themselves so that their team may gain, loyalty and rewards naturally flow.
