Traditional leadership dictates that the company or team leader is a frontline warrior, a hero with an answer for everything, the only one who can, or should, carry the company upon their shoulders.
To find out more about the subject, we invite you to watch this video.
If you’re in the ‘perhaps not’ category, then it’s no wonder that you find yourself browsing this section of our website as you may be experiencing one of the following situations:
Team disengagement and disempowerment
Employee turnover, absenteeism, and/or Presenteeism
A team that operates in silos
Displays of stress and anxiety, such as anger, avoidance, and discouragement
Lack of initiative, proactivity, and creativity
A feeling of loneliness and/or inadequacy and a fear of not being good enough
A sense of having to repeat the same things over and over again
Doubts regarding management’s efficiency
Information not flowing smoothly
A lack of enthusiasm and confidence
For Synaxon Expansion, each of these “disturbing” and ” suboptimal” situations is a wonderful opportunity for expansion where you can choose to powerfully activate authentic leadership right now.
FROM LEADERSHIP TO Stewardship
In traditional leadership, the leader’s main functions are planning, organizing, directing, and controlling. Decisions are mainly made in a hierarchical manner with a “top-down” dynamic, and consciously (or unconsciously) individual competition is encouraged in order to climb the corporate ladder to achieve more powerful positions. In this race to the top, there are winners, and there are losers. This creates a high-pressure environment where personal gain often supersedes the company’s success and reason for being.
May the best man win! This model has certainly proven to deliver financial results and comes with the valorization of performance at all costs. On the other hand, according to statistics on absenteeism and the cost of work-related stress, as well as what people are presently seeking, the current model seems ripe for renewal!
Excerpt from the Morneau Sheppel study “The True Face of Workplace Absenteeism”:
According to participants, Presenteeism is also a problem.
According to Gallup, only 13% of the global workforce is actively engaged at work!
The Corporate Leadership Council studied the level of engagement of 50,000 employees worldwide to learn about its impact on performance and turnover rates. Here are the two key findings:
Companies with engaged employees grow profits 3 times faster than their competitors.
Highly engaged employees are 87% less likely to leave their company.
McLean & Company found that a disillusioned employee costs about $3,400 for every $10,000 of annual salary.
When a manager recognizes an employee’s contribution, his or her engagement level increases by 60%.
Another organizational opportunity is possible at the very heart of performance. Hierarchy is increasingly horizontal, and people are at the heart of every decision. Decisions are made in a manner where all company functions are equally important. The leader is, therefore, at the service of the team, hence the essence of Stewardship. Their main function is to inspire and assist each team member in rising to their highest potential. Competition makes way for collaboration. The leader creates an environment where everyone can shine in a climate of interconnectedness and harmony.
This is what Synaxon Expansion offers by inviting you to activate authentic and powerful leadership.
The leader is committed to creating an environment where it is possible and easy to be at one’s best, to understand how each person uniquely contributes to the success of the business and actions are aligned with the purpose. This type of environment fosters commitment and greatly reduces the need for supervision and control. Performance indicators provide clarity on required actions, not blame. Each person shines, can express themselves to their fullest potential while experiencing a safe and healthy work environment and harmonious relationships. This creates creative and harmonious team interaction, operational efficiency and is reflected in productivity, customer service quality and everyone’s physical and mental health.
Rather than being the sole focus, performance and profits become the product of each individual’s unique, committed contribution aligned with the expression of the company’s highest potential.
Do you feel the power, fluidity, and exponential expansion that this type of leadership offers?
