Winner’s Best Practice

Since I took over my first leadership position, I always knew I wanted to lead with compassion and trust. To offer my team members a work environment where they feel safe and can become the best version of themselves, I schedule a personal 1:1 meeting with them every month. The goal is to regularly pause and reflect, look at achievements, understand challenges and identify and understand stress triggers and offer practical advice. This individual format, can be one way to establish a positive climate of trust, authenticity and regular reflection, keeping your team motivated and enabling them to overcome any obstacles.
