How to Inspire Loyalty - Protect & Support
This week we’re talking about how to inspire loyalty among your peers and subordinates, if you happen to have subordinates. Today, we’re over the hump and if you’ve missed any of our episodes please catch up at the website wementoryou.org, or at iTunes. Loyalty is generally a trait that is attached to people with titles that indicate they are “a leader.” If you been around just a little bit, you’ll know that is rare. In fact you can exercise true leadership no matter where you are on the organization chart so this week’s discussion applies equally to CEOs and the person who make sure the copy machine has paper. In our first episode, we addressed the importance of believing in your peers and subordinates, and learning to be an encourager. We have built on that with praise and open communication, and the importance of teaching and being a role model. Today it’s all about protecting people from political and bureaucratic silliness and supporting them, especially in the face of adversity.
