Unity. As a leader, you cannot afford to ignore this critical leadership principal.
Unity is the key to a healthy, thriving organization. Successful leadership requires forging & preserving unity. So how can you unite your team to accomplish great feats?
In a recent blog series Matt Levy, Managing Director, Credera, shared lessons learned regarding unity in leadership:
- Unanimous agreement is not required. When iron sharpens iron, sparks fly but the iron is ultimately sharper and stronger because of it.
- Destroying unity is easy. As Mark Twain once said, “Trust leaves on horseback but returns on foot.”
- Unity requires a tremendous amount of humility. Exemplify servant leadership by putting the needs of others ahead of your own.
- Address the bricks. Thriving teams maintain and prioritize unity.
