Help and hope
For leaders to succeed, team members need to feel supported and inspired by help and hope. Leaders must, therefore, get involved in the day-to-day grind with their team members and be present for the ongoing needs for support and direction.
Team members need to be provided with an open line of communication with their leaders to have access to the support, help and advice they need to be as successful as possible in their role.
Exceptional leaders also inspire hope by providing a bigger picture vision to chase. For people to have hope in the company they are working for, they need to believe they can make a big and impactful difference.
Ultimately, people stay in jobs and under leaders when they feel their efforts are valued; when leaders are present and available for support, that is more likely.
