6 Tips To Make People Feel Comfortable Being Led By You

6 Tips To Make People Feel Comfortable Being Led By You

As a successful leader you not only need motivation for yourself, but for the people around you to take you towards that success. Mostly people face challenges to lead those who work with them appropriately because of not accepting the true importance of a leader. You do not just act as a leader in your professional life, but you have to manage and make people feel comfortable enough to let you lead them.

1. Lead by example

Leaders don’t believe in giving orders, but they exercise what they expound and lead by example. At workplace leaders become the role model for other co-workers and their subordinates feel comfortable with them and would love to follow. Good leaders make their subordinates feel that they’re heart of the company, not at the boundary. By doing this, every individual led by you feels that he or she makes a difference to the success of the company and gives their work meaning.

2. Build trust

Most effective leaders lead by example, importune ideas from their team members, listen carefully before acting, and most importantly, trust their team. Trust is essential to build an effective team, because it gives a sense of safety. When your team members feel safe with you, they feel comfortable to open up, and uncover their skills. Creating trust among team members leads you towards innovation, teamwork, creativity, and productivity.

3. Think ahead

Leaders think about the future, and have the answers and a plan of action ready for any challenging situation. They are constantly thinking ahead for the company and their team members for improvement, and finding ways to make work processes smooth for them. Thinking ahead and planning your goals, actions, and timelines, will give you the kind of team you want to build. To make your employees comfortable under your leadership, you should encourage your employees to participate and share their views and knowledge. By involving your employees and volunteers you can make a big difference to become a loved leader.

4. Yield information

You need to encourage your team members to think strategically until it becomes part of their job. That allows you to provide your employees the most convenient, enjoyable working environment. In order to stay competitive and ahead, you should seek and learn information from your inner circle, on your company’s strengths and weaknesses, industry analysis, customers, competitors, and developing technologies. One of the key requirements of effective leadership is having appropriate and extensive business information that helps leaders elevate their thinking and gives a sense of contribution to employees in achieving success.

5. Trust your gut

Great leaders use to make many of their crucial decisions based upon good information gathered from their team members and their gut. In reality, great leaders that changed businesses, their intuition and courage is what lead innovation. We would not have seen the innovations today, if those leaders had made their decisions based only on the facts, probabilities.

If you have strong, well-trained employees and you provide them the flexibility to put their efforts to make things happen. You should consider and trust your inner feelings.

6. Start Mentoring

Recognize that your personal involvement is critical for employees to make them familiar with the workplace culture and feel comfortable striking out on his or her own. Include the people led by you in your long term planning and continue supporting, because their comfort level with the environment will have direct posture on your employee’s satisfaction.

A good leader teaches their employees, associates and others team members to deliberately align themselves. Once an individual is working toward their own goals and success, they will ultimately attempt to grow and achieve their goals, thus displaying being led by a quality leader.

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

Success In Reaching Goals Is Determined By Mindset

What do you think it takes to achieve your goals? Hard work? Lots of actions? While these are paramount to becoming successful in reaching our goals, neither of these are possible without a positive mindset.

As humans, we naturally tend to lean towards a negative outlook when it comes to our hopes and dreams. We are prone to believing that we have limitations either from within ourselves or from external forces keeping us from truly getting to where we want to be in life. Our tendency to think that we’ll “believe it when we see it” suggests that our mindsets are focused on our goals not really being attainable until they’ve been achieved. The problem with this is that this common mindset fuels our limiting beliefs and shows a lack of faith in ourselves.

The Success Mindset

Success in achieving our goals comes down to a ‘success mindset’. Successful mindsets are those focused on victory, based on positive mental attitudes, empowering inclinations and good habits. Acquiring a success mindset is the sure-fire way to dramatically increase your chance to achieve your goals.

The idea that achieving our goals comes down to our habits and actions is actually a typical type of mindset that misses a crucial point; that our mindset is, in fact, the determiner of our energy and what actions we take. A negative mindset will tend to create negative actions and similarly if we have a mindset that will only set into action once we see ‘proof’ that our goals are achievable, then the road will be much longer and arduous. This is why, instead of thinking “I’ll believe it when I see it”, a success mindset will think “I’ll see it when I believe it.”

The Placebo Effect and What It Shows Us About The Power of Mindset

The placebo effect is a perfect example of how mindset really can be powerful. In scientific trials, a group of participants were told they received medication that will heal an ailment but were actually given a sugar pill that does nothing (the placebo). Yet after the trial the participants believed it’s had a positive effect – sometimes even cured their ailment even though nothing has changed. This is the power of mindset.

How do we apply this to our goals? Well, when we set goals and dreams how often do we really believe they’ll come to fruition? Have absolute faith that they can be achieved? Have a complete unwavering expectation? Most of us don’t because we hold on to negative mindsets and limiting beliefs about ourselves that stop us from fully believing we are capable or that it’s at all possible. We tend to listen to the opinions of others despite them misaligning with our own or bow to societal pressures that make us believe we should think and act a certain way. There are many reasons why we possess these types of mindsets but a success mindset can be achieved.

How To Create a Success Mindset

People with success mindsets have a particular way of perceiving things. They have positive outlooks and are able to put faith fully in their ability to succeed. With that in mind, here are a few ways that can turn a negative mindset into a successful one.

1. A Success Mindset Comes From a Growth Mindset

How does a mindset even manifest itself? It comes from the way you talk to yourself in the privacy of your own head. Realising this will go a long way towards noticing how you speak to yourself and others around you. If it’s mainly negative language you use when you talk about your goals and aspirations then this is an example of a fixed mindset.

A negative mindset brings with it a huge number of limiting beliefs. It creates a fixed mindset – one that can’t see beyond it’s own limitations. A growth mindset sees these limitations and looks beyond them – it finds ways to overcome obstacles and believes that this will result in success. When you think of your goal, a fixed mindset may think “what if I fail?” A growth mindset would look at the same goal and think “failures happen but that doesn’t mean I won’t be successful.”

There’s a lot of power in changing your perspective.

2. Look For The Successes

It’s really important to get your mind focused on positive aspects of your goal. Finding inspiration through others can be really uplifting and keep you on track with developing your success mindset; reinforcing your belief that your dreams can be achieved. Find people that you can talk with about how they achieved their goals and seek out and surround yourself with positive people. This is crucial if you’re learning to develop a positive mindset.

3. Eliminate Negativity

You can come up against a lot of negativity sometimes either through other people or within yourself. Understanding that other people’s negative opinions are created through their own fears and limiting beliefs will go a long way in sustaining your success mindset. But for a lot of us, negative chatter can come from within and these usually manifest as negative words such as can’t, won’t, shouldn’t. Sometimes, when we think of how we’re going to achieve our goals, statements in our minds come out as negative absolutes: ‘It never works out for me’ or ‘I always fail.’

When you notice these coming up you need to turn them around with ‘It always works out for me!’ and ‘I never fail!’ The trick is to believe it no matter what’s happened in the past. Remember that every new day is a clean slate and for you to adjust your mindset.

4. Create a Vision

Envisioning your end goal and seeing it in your mind is an important trait of a success mindset. Allowing ourselves to imagine our success creates a powerful excitement that shouldn’t be underestimated. When our brain becomes excited at the thought of achieving our goals, we become more committed, work harder towards achieving it and more likely to do whatever it takes to make it happen.

If this involves creating a vision board that you can look at to remind yourself every day then go for it. Small techniques like this go a long way in sustaining your success mindset and shouldn’t be dismissed.

An Inspirational Story…

For centuries experts said that running a mile in under 4 minutes was humanly impossible. On the 6th May 1954, Rodger Bannister did just that. As part of his training, Bannister relentlessly visualised the achievement, believing he could accomplish what everyone said wasn’t possible…and he did it.

What’s more amazing is that, as soon as Bannister achieved the 4-minute mile, more and more people also achieved it. How was this possible after so many years of no one achieving it? Because in people’s minds it was suddenly possible – once people knew that it was achievable it created a mindset of success and now, after over fifty years since Bannister did the ‘impossible’, his record has been lowered by 17 seconds – the power of the success mindset!
