Best-Practices Leadership

A leader in an organization can’t do everyone’s job. Instead of micromanaging, strong leaders use organizational leadership to coordinate, communicate, motivate and delegate among employees and team members. For comprehensive organizational effectiveness, each individual needs to be seen as a contributor, with the leader at the helm.

Most importantly, best-practices leadership involves keeping employees motivated throughout the process, adapting your scope or strategy as necessary, and developing an effective communication strategy.

Some people never make it to the other side because they’re more successful at being doers. This is a crucial point in determining if you’re going to move up the ranks.

Brazilian equipment supplier Semco has grown an average 27.5 percent a year for 14 years, despite wild fluctuations in Brazil’s economy. The reason: Semco’s radical use of participative management. Of the employees’ 3,000 votes, CEO Ricardo Semler gets only one.
Robert Crandall headed engineering and manufacturing at Eastman Kodak during the “copier wars” with Xerox back in the 1970s. He faced two problems:
Jorge Posada, Mariano Rivera, Derek Jeter and Bernie Williams. They’re the only guys who’ve played for the New York Yankees throughout the team’s dazzling 10-year run featuring six American League championships and four World Series titles. In a sport where continuity is rare, their friendship reinforces their leadership.
Former Home Dept chief executive Bob Nardelli exemplifies some of the biggest rules of leadership:
The IRS can hit you with dozens of different penalties if you fail to follow the letter of the tax law. They’re often arcane and difficult to understand. And although many of the penalties are relatively small on their own, they can add up quickly. So, a single mistake could snowball into hundreds or thousands of dollars.
