A Leader Often Finds Himself Alone
Leaders Often Find Him or Herself Standing Alone

As a new year begins, it is important to put priorities in order.   You need to understand what really is important, giving your full energy and support to those subordinates, who depend on your leadership.  If you, the leader, do not understand or support your workforce with strong guidance, education, and training, then how can you expect them to produce successful results?

Before the New Year begins, there should be a detailed plan of what specific goals and targets are to be met and how to accomplish these.   Each week areas of strength and work should be focused on making improvements.  Every individual should be aware of which skills need guidance and instructions in order to do their best.

If a Leader has not done the homework on each team member’s skill level, no plans can be assigned for training.  An overall strategy should be drafted in order to make sure all training and instructions are addressing the right areas.  Furthermore, after any training and instructions, the individual’s coaching should be evaluated.  Is each individual receiving the best training and the areas needing this support?

It is the responsibility of each Leader to have gathered accurate status prior to the training and instructions, as well as determining if the support has been adequate and successful.  The Leader should have developed the best training routine for the best outcome.  If you are the Leader of your organization, what have you done to prepare and implement the sufficient support needed for successful results?  If not, what can you do to adjust this process?  Have you calculated the amount of time it would take to succeed at training your workforce adequately?  This is expected as the full responsibility of a Leader.  Are you ready?
