    Your Style is... Directing
    Your directing leadership style means you have high expectations for your team, and anyone who underperforms – even a teensy bit – simply isn't a fit. You're a stickler for the rules and discourage experimentation. You might believe procedures are in place for a reason and should rarely be questioned.On top of that, it takes a lot of commitment to win over your trust. In part, this is due to you not giving your employees enough opportunities to prove themselves. You prefer to take the leading role in your business and make all the major decisions.While your directing style means your office rarely falls out of order, it can still be an emotionally challenging work environment. Your team may feel under-appreciated and become uninspired. Try giving them a bit more freedom, and you might be happily surprised."If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." – John Quincy Adams3 Quick Tips for Transforming Your Work Environment1) Listen to Your TeamLet your employees know their thoughts are valuable by setting aside time to hearing them out. If you have any especially quiet team members, try directly asking them for their opinions. Stay open to innovative ideas – just because something hasn’t worked in the past doesn’t mean it’s not a possibility in the present. And – whatever you do – don’t immediately reject whatever your workers have had the courage to share with you. Empowerment should be your endgame!2) Reward Hard WorkThis tip should almost go without saying. Your team is going to work harder and more efficiently with an incentive system in place – if you can’t afford bonuses, recognition will do the trick. Take a couple minutes out of your staff meeting to address their accomplishments. You could also try letting them leave work early or come in late. This’ll show everyone in your office that their hard work doesn’t go unnoticed or unappreciated ✨🤗💕3) Have Some FunIf your employees spend the majority of the work day at their desks, they might become a little lethargic. Try mixing up their routine with a few fun, no-planning-needed activities. Encourage them to decorate their cubicles with photographs. If you’re willing to do a little more work, try organizing a team retreat, and you can be sure to see the pay-off in their forthcoming projects.Before We Go Any Further – Let Me Introduce MyselfHi there, I’m Alyssa Morgan, founder and CEO of Workplace Solutions Co.

    Your Style is... Coaching
    Your coaching leadership style means you bring some serious vision to the workplace. Your team looks up to you for your non-stop stream of innovative ideas – just because something worked once, doesn't mean there isn't a better way, am I right?You make your employees feel valuable by offering them opportunities to share their thoughts. You have no qualms about asking their opinions on choices you've made or are in the process of making – your office door is always open.So what's your hold up? While you're great at listening, you might find it difficult to fully pass over the reigns. You could become so committed to your vision that you don't see all the possibilities and end up missing something important."If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." – John Quincy Adams3 Quick Tips for Transforming Your Work Environment1) Listen to Your TeamLet your employees know their thoughts are valuable by setting aside time to hearing them out.

    Your Style is... Supporting
    Your supporting leadership style means you're all about collaboration. By working together, you know your team can accomplish big, bright things. You don't have to be the star of the show to shine...On top of that, you give your employees space to make important decisions. This makes them feel valuable to your business. And if someone performs highly, you're keen to reward their efforts with more freedom and responsibility.You trust your employees to get the job done, which lets you take a step back from your desk and relax once in awhile – but rest assured, you've earned it!"If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." – John Quincy Adams3 Quick Tips for Transforming Your Work Environment1) Listen to Your TeamLet your employees know their thoughts are valuable by setting aside time to hearing them out.

    Your Style is... Delegating 
    Your delegating leadership style means you're happy to step back and let your employees lead the charge... within reason. You assign them tasks with faith they'll come back with something great.You're unlikely to offer more support and guidance than necessary. You have enough responsibilities of your own without micromanaging your team's every move. Knowing this, you're careful to hire folks who deserve your trust and give them in-depth training.Ensure your employees feel valuable by giving them the praise they deserve. On top of that, make a point of showing up at employee functions so everyone knows just how tuned in to your business you truly are."If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader." – John Quincy Adams3 Quick Tips for Transforming Your Work Environment1) Listen to Your TeamLet your employees know their thoughts are valuable by setting aside time to hearing them out.
