And do each of your team follow you willingly?
When working with Change Leaders, we often use this quote:
Change happens at the speed of trust
When introducing change to your team or business, your role as the leader is absolutely vital. In relation to your change project, it’s your job as the leader to engage each of your team to ‘choose’ to change the way they think, the way they behave and the way their do their job.
But if there are trust issues, it is going to be hard to encourage your team to choose to change.
We see some leaders use some less than useful strategies with their team to get them to change.
Force just does not work. Telling people to change just doesn’t work.
Unsure of the answers to these team trust questions? Maybe this is where you need to start.
Work on determining and developing your trust levels and you will then increase the chances of your team following you willingly. Once each team member trusts and will follow you, making change happen will be much easier.
