You’re In Your Role to Make an Impact

You’re In Your Role to Make an Impact | Foundations Friday #103 is inspired by the article from July 26, 2023, titled How to Be a Purpose-Driven Leader Without Burning Out by Lisa Earle McLeod and Elizabeth Lotardo on the Harvard Business Review website.

Key points from the article:

  1. When you interact with your employees, ask how what they need to get stuff done
  2. Assist your team’s decision-making process through purpose-focused questions
  3. Put more of your time and calories into team members that will respond more

Servant leadership was a crucial stepping-stone into a more humane world of work. But the next evolution is upon us. The workplace data (and our own experiences) tells us that we’re at an inflection point. We’re standing in a moment in time where leaders, both formal and informal, must move forward towards a more purposeful leadership style that focuses on the impact that the organization’s work has on real live human beings.” – Lisa Earle McLeod & Elizabeth Lotardo
