3 Common mistakes leaders make.

Having a good boss in this time and age is difficult. When you find a good boss with integrity, know that you are blessed. Such people are rare to find. Sometimes it’s not because they are bad people but because of stress, they deal with daily. Leading a successful company is not as easy as it sounds. It comes with sacrifices and hard work.

Therefore, the mistakes leaders make are, allowing emotions to get in the way and start treating the employees however they want.

Below are some of the mistakes which are likely made at work by bosses.

No feedback about performance

Feedback is the breakfast of champions

Ken Blachard

I believe we all work for ourselves and as long as the work is done, we know we have played our parts. But we all could appreciate it if our bosses sometimes gave a small compliment about a job well done. That will always encourage me to do the job with excellence even more.
Bosses ignore the compliments. They tend to forget that the progress of the company lies in the hands of the employees. Without them, there will be no progress. Compliments are
vital for the benefit of the company and also it’s a way to motivate the employees to put even more effort.

Unapproachable Boss

Leadership is about making others better.

Unapproachable Boss

Imagine working for someone with you cannot even have a conversation. Besides, you came to work not to have conversations, but good leaders should make employees free to rush to them whenever they have new ideas. They should create a healthy working environment where employees are appreciated. Bosses should give their staff a sense of belonging to know that they can approach them whenever they want and will always be there for them.

Lack of communication skills

Effective communication is 20% what you know and 80% how you feel about what you know.

Jim Rohn

Leaders should develop good communication between the employees. Sometimes leaders generally assume the employees know the status of the company and what is going on but the truth of the matter is – they have no idea. Whether they might be knowing or not, they should be informed of everything they need to know. Not to be left hanging and assuming they probably know. Some companies have a meeting every Monday and Friday, which is good. Simply because employees will be up to date on what is happening in the company and where they should improve. This is very helpful if you want to see drastic changes in the company.

Being a leader is fun yet it comes with its pecks. If you want to be a good leader, establish good communication skills, be approachable to the employees, and do not forget to compliment them whenever they do something good. These are the points I found necessary for leaders to fix.
