LESSON NOTES
The 4 team leadership priorities that spell out LEAD are:

Listening
Perhaps the primary communication skill. You need to pay attention to what your team members and stakeholders want and need to tell you.
We have a video on listening in our series on Negotiation: https://youtu.be/YCIryXl-ApI

Encouraging
You are there for your team. So, you need to guide, support, and motivate them to perform at their best.
o Supporting
o Recognizing
o Praising
o Rewarding
We have a whole course on Motivation, so check out the playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6vWkk9L7LeE7ly5r-rFBoi0gt1o3yKhH

Asserting
Fundamentally, a manager is paid to deliver your operations. This means you equally need to make things happen, give instructions, and speak without fear.
We have a series of videos on assertiveness in our course on Personal Impact: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6vWkk9L7LeHP4d6ecPXo6SD7ADEZE-ve

Deciding
Management is a series of choices. Each one opens up and shuts down opportunity. You have to figure out what is right, and set your team’s priorities.
