Tips To Recharge Your Team Regularly

Lousy leaders drain people; successful leaders energize.

The law of energy is >> put more in than you take out.

Successful leaders replenish energy in others. Energy looks like Hope, Optimism and Confidence.

Leaders who over-emphasize deliverables and projects; suck life out of people. Leaders who energize; focus on projects and people. Foolish leaders forget people come first because people complete projects. Leaders who prioritize people are energizers. Successful leaders monitor energy. Always check what’s the mood of your team before planning or acting.

Doing things that you love. Rest is helpful, but doing what you love energizes. Help your team do things they love. Just ask, what do you love doing? Challenges energize when they’re just out of reach. Too far and they drain. Finishing energizes. Successful leaders create & celebrate finishing points. Great finishing points energize the journey. Developing new skills infuses energy.

Leaders who withhold encouragement, discourage. Validation encourages. Don’t explain away people’s perspectives or feelings. Go with them, even when they aren’t yours. Going with isn’t agreement, it’s understanding. People feel validated when they feel understood. Systematic encouragement.
