Getting Things Done: Understanding Win-Win Leadership

Some believe leadership is something that comes naturally. Either you are born to be a leader or you are destined to be a follower. This theory is supported by numerous studies and stories.
There are many motivational speakers and self help books that aim to help us become leaders. It is obvious that leaders are needed.
You might wonder why we should have leadership with all the buzz and hype surrounding it. You might wonder why we need to put in effort to be great and influential leaders. You may be asking yourself why you should work harder to become a better leader if you are already in a leadership position.
This is the simple answer to your question. To get things done, we need leadership. To influence others and move in the right direction, we need leaders.
You will see that leaders are often the ones who lead people to success, no matter how small or large they may be in an organization. A leader is able to help people get things done at every level.
What is a Win-Win type of leadership?
If you don’t explain why you are doing it, how it will end, and what they can expect from it, it’s difficult for people to follow your lead. These are the reasons why leaders must have vision and foresight. A leader must also know how to achieve the goal. It is crucial that the leader makes sure that members feel they are getting something out of the goal’s completion.
You can make people follow you and give something back to them. This is what you call a win/win type of leadership.
This type of win-win leadership is essential in Project Management because both project completion and quality are at stake. If your team doesn’t share the same vision, if they don’t understand how you can achieve it, or if they feel they aren’t getting anything from it, it is impossible to make them work efficiently. You can’t also empower them to take initiative.
You will get great results if your vision for the company or team is clear and visible to all team members. If they can get something good as a take-out, you’ll also get great results.
How can a leader create a win-win leadership strategy?
It is simple to develop a win-win mentality. It’s easy to see what the individual can do if they complete a task or become active members of the team.
You could be a Project Manager, or a Team Leader for a group of Account Managers who work at a rehab facility. You are responsible for maintaining a good working relationship with your Rehab Consultants as part of the Account Management team. You also have to aim for 1,000 bookings per month. How can you motivate your team to work together to maintain positive relationships with your organizers and reach the 1,000 monthly bookings? Each person may not see the quota as as urgent or important as you do. You can’t do this alone. The only way to reach these goals is to get everyone working together.
To understand the Win-Win style of leadership, you must first examine the needs and circumstances of your team. If they help you reach your goal, think of one thing they can gain. Answering the question “What’s in it For Me?” is the key. A plaque of recognition, being named the model employee of month, or cash incentives could all be possible.
You need to find something that makes your team love what you do. Although this can be difficult, once you have mastered this strategy, you’ll find it easy to work with any size team.
