Leadership can be defined as “a process of social influence, which maximises the efforts of others, towards the achievement of a goal” (Kruse, 2013). This process is present in may walks of life, with many business environments having a hierarchal structure, therefore leadership to be demonstrated through management roles and team leaders.
When leadership and team management is utilised effectively, then this provides a much more productive business environment, an improved atmosphere and morale. In contemporary business environments, providing a mindset for team working is much more in demand.
A “Team” can be described as two or more people who are psychologically contracted to one another, working to achieve common goals (Kozlowski and Llgen, 2006). In order to manage a team, leaders need to possess certain skills, to maximise team performance.
One particular skill that proves useful when managing a team and being a ‘leader’, is “emotional intelligence”. This is whereby a leader is able to control and understand both their own emotions, as well as the emotions of those around them. This makes for a much more empathetic approach to management, and will result in team members being much more comfortable in approaching their ‘leader’ for advice and support. A comfortable environment means that the team are more likely to be able to work collaboratively and become more productive overall (Young Entrepreneur Council, 2018).
As a manager, developing your personal emotional intelligence is therefore very important and beneficial. One way to do so, would be to communicate more effectively, – another skill – tailoring your approach to each team member based upon their personality type, will result in a more positive reaction to whatever the instruction is (Stobierski, 2020). Being assertive when communicating, whilst not coming across as rude or aggressive is the best way to maintain a level of respect, whilst continuing to nurture a positive relationship.
In order to develop a relationship and a team atmosphere, do you believe that mangers should be interacting/socialising with staff outside of work? From a general perspective, is this a good thing, or does it impact the overall work-life balance in a negative way?
