Be Consistent

Filed under: Tips — stevekaplan @ 11:47 am

This is the second of my five keys to leadership.

Be consistent. Your employees need to know what to expect from you. If you’re rational one day and volatile the next, or if you change the rules of the game without warning or apparent reason, those you’re trying to lead may become confused and ineffective. Being consistent calms the anxiety that builds up under pressure of growth. If they know how you’re going to react, they can adjust their actions to meet your expectations.

How are you consistent? Or better yet, what have been the consequences you’ve faced for being inconsistent?
