Reduce the friction and build a well-oiled machine.
Having a well-managed business means it runs efficiently, effectively, and meets your objectives. It gets results, has high employee satisfaction, and turns customers into raving fans. It has clear systems and processes in place for operations, finance, marketing, sales, and human resources, while making room for innovation. Well-managed businesses don't happen by accident. They are a result of innovative and forward-looking leaders strategically adapting to a changing world.
According to a study from Gallup, teams with engaged workers have 23% higher profit. Additionally, teams with thriving workers see significantly lower absenteeism, turnover, and accidents. They also see higher customer loyalty. Managers at every level who are better listeners, coaches, and collaborators are the key to high employee engagement.
Managing a business is too hard to do alone but can be too complicated to do together. Managers with conflicting styles, strategies, and tactics can lead to poor results, communication issues, and unhealthy conflict.

"As someone who has been in all levels of leadership, it was nice to see all the attributes it requires. This gave me a chance to reevaluate my level of strength in each, and I plan on working towards evening out those levels."
A cohesive and high-performing team of leaders works from the same playbook. Here's an exercise: Go ask the formal and informal leaders in your organization these questions. What is leadership? What can you observe in your team to know you're doing a great job as a leader? Where should you focus your energy day-to-day as a leader? If you hear a bunch of different answers, it's a sign everyone has a different playbook.
