In Dr. Travis Bradberry’s article, Should Leaders Focus on Results or People?, he reviewed James Zenger’s survey of over 60,000 employees to see which leadership characteristics made leaders “great” in the eyes of their employees. Two of the characteristics that Zenger looked at were “results-focused” and “people-focused”, and he found that neither characteristic consistently produced great leadership. The best leadership comes from those who can focus equally on results and motivate people to be their best, without losing sight of the bigger picture. This balance enables them to achieve extraordinary results, because they do these five things that few other leaders are able to accomplish.
1. They deliver feedback flawlessly
2. They put the right team of people together to execute a plan
3. They solve problems as a team
4. They hire the best employees
5. They balance work & fun
