The most loving thing a leader can do for their team is to be consistent. | Lead with Hart

 

The most loving thing a leader can do for their team is to be consistent. Consistent is defined as: "Acting or done in the same way over time, especially so as to be fair or accurate."

Being a consistent leader means that your employees can trust that you will do what you say you are going to do and that you will behave fairly in your actions.

 

Here's why consistency matters ...

It's not fair to your employees (or your business) to keep people "guessing". Your team should know the purpose of your company, how their contribution is helping to fulfill that purpose, and know that you will consistently communicate on those two elements.

Every single one of us finds our best performance in consistency. The sun consistently rises and sets, and we know the time when this will happen. Even though it's technically a "moving target" across the sky, it's consistent performance allows us to make plans to capture and optimize the light it provides.

Consistency in your leadership will help your people make plans to optimize on the direction you give—no matter which way you and your company are moving.

Good leaders understand that loyalty also means unleashing people. | Lead with Hart

Loyalty matters. People don’t leave you because they aren’t “loyal”. Many times they leave because they are being loyal to themselves and aren’t willing to stay where they can’t make the most difference with their lives.

Most humans aren’t “jerks”. They actually want to know they are making a real difference. If they can make a difference working with you, they will usually stay.

Yet, some leave. Sometimes, it’s because their life mission is beckoning. Encourage them!
