Rome can’t be built in a day! And Rome can’t be built all alone either!
When we dream something we need some people in our life to walk along with us. These people not only support us through various tasks that they can perform but also define our course of action in the future. For example if you want to set up a business than you will always need some people who can significantly contribute their skills and efforts so that you can progress in the right direction. Similarly if you are organising some family event also you need some people to help you with the arrangements. There can be vivid reasons to make one understand the importance of being able to get the support of people all through your life.
But the most challenging part is that once you have abundant people in your life, do you know how to manage them?
We have seen the most of the bosses try to rather suppress their employees instead of showing appreciation and faith in their abilities. May be this is the reason of increasing employee attrition in most of the companies. In order to get maximum output from the people in your life, you need to show faith in them first. If you trust them, there will definitely be miraculous outcomes. This ability is only available in the leaders.
How do the leaders achieve the ability to manage the people in their life so effectively?
The key is- self management!
Before we go about lecturing others about their doings and actions, as leaders we should lead by example. There are various aspects of self management that one should learn in order to inculcate the qualities of successful leaders.
Some of these aspects are as mentioned below:
- Time management
- Self motivation
- Active and energetic
- Proper organisation of tasks
- Forecasting the course of actions
These are some of the aspects. As one progresses towards self management there are some simple steps that one should choose in order to adept these qualities in oneself:
- Pay attention to details: If you think that there is an area of improvement in your behaviour, then you should deliberately start working on it. You need to pay attention to all the details pertaining to that plan of action.
- Organise: For all kind of tasks you should learn the skill of organising your tasks in first place. As a team leader you will have to face various challenges where your skills of organising the tasks at hand will be tested in real life situations. Therefore, the more organised you will be, the more inspiring you will be! One simple way of organising the tasks for self management is to break the bigger things into small. Then you can arrange them in sequence as desired.
These are some of the traits of self management that motivate one to show more faith in the people in their life.
