Tough Times. 3 Tips How to Guide Your Team Through

By Nicole Fallon, Business News Daily Managing Editor

Sales and revenue are falling short. Your company is facing the prospect of downsizing. Your best employee suddenly quits. No matter the circumstances, your team’s morale is at an all-time low, and it’s your job as their manager to lift their spirits and get them back on track.

This is no easy task. It can be hard to see the positive when everything seems to be falling apart. But every company goes through rough patches and growing pains, and it’s during these times that a team most needs a strong leader to help them weather the storm.

“If employees don’t have confidence in the leadership team, they may question the future of the organization, wonder whether their role is safe and either become disengaged or start to look for a new job,” said Kim Littlefield, senior vice president of Keystone Partners. “Employees need to feel heard, understood, recognized and appreciated by their managers …  especially during rough patches.”

Based on the advice of company leaders and entrepreneurs, here are three smart ways you can keep your staff motivated to persevere through tough times. Continue reading

How to be a Modern Leader. 5 Modern Workplace Challenges

By Sammi Caramela, B2B Staff Writer

Today’s business leaders have to deal with ever-changing tech products, globalization and a new generation of workers. Nothing ever stays the same. Just as society changes and develops, so do workplace challenges. As a leader, you must be able to adapt to the technological advancements and economic forces that directly impact your team. Here are five modern leadership challenges and how to handle them.

1. Technological advancements

The latest and greatest tech tools from a few years ago are now obsolete, and business leaders may find it difficult to adjust. But staying ahead of the curve means using these gadgets to your advantage.

The more experienced leader may never feel comfortable with technology. If you’re not comfortable, allow your younger staff to help lead your company into a more technology-friendly direction

2. Globalization

The internet has opened the doors for global business opportunities in many different industries. While the increasingly global economy has given businesses the chance to enter previously untapped markets, it also means that leaders need to be more aware of what happens in those markets.

3. Demographic shifts

Along with globalization, today’s business world is seeing a huge shift in demographics, Engelmeier said. Disposable income and spending power have increased greatly for Generation Y, as well as Latino and African-American populations in recent years, so diverse input in the workplace will be required to adapt to this changing market.

How to Admit Mistakes. Are You Really Sorry?

By Sammi Caramela, B2B Staff Writer

No one perfect. Everyone makes mistakes. If you admit to your faults and express your remorse, you might expect to be forgiven. However, managers are rarely believed to be sorry.

The research found that when powerful figures apologize, it comes across as disingenuous. According to leadership coach Jack Skeen, co-author of “The Circle Blueprint” (Wiley, 2017), employees think bosses only apologize to avoid conflict. This belief can be detrimental to your team. It’s crucial for workers to be on the same page as managers, and even the smallest disconnect can cause tension and lead to poor results. Want to ensure your employees trust your sincerity? Here are three tips to persuade your team that you really are sorry.

1. Develop strong company culture.

If you show your workers that you’re interested in more than just their work and how it benefits the company, they’ll begin to trust you.

Talk to your team about topics other than work, and find ways to reverse the roles. So you can cater to them for a change. This can be as simple as brewing coffee for your team or bringing bagels to work.

“If we can see our staff members as human beings and, most importantly, make them realize that we view them as worthy, unique and inherently valuable individuals, they won’t struggle to believe we are sincere when we apologize,” Skeen said.

Anyone can be a boss, but not everyone can be a leader. Be considerate of your entire team, and they won’t doubt your emotions for a second. Continue reading
