Supervisors Succeed by Sharing

As a leader, how much do you share with your team?

When it comes to leveraging your success and keeping your team positive and performing, sharing is a powerful tool.

Successful supervisors share what they know about the organization, including upcoming changes and strategic moves. They share their own personal goals. They share the resources needed for their team to achieve its goals. The list could be very long. The challenge to many leaders is that they don't share enough. Centered leaders know that by sharing the whole is made greater than the parts. By sharing, you do not diminish your excellence but rather increase it.

I'm not talking about private, personal details about your life. Share those if you want to, but that's not what I mean here. Successful supervisors share generously the details of their work, their vision, their values, and their goals.

Supervisors succeed by sharing knowledge, power, and responsibility.  

How are you doing at sharing?

What extra detail could you share with your people today?
