We often find providing support to our people a much easier activity than challenging them and holding them to account. High performing team leaders can tread that tightrope activity of balancing both. Our people expect it... and will stay!
The relationship a leader forms with their staff can make all the difference to a team dynamic. If they strive to build a positive culture, staff will enjoy working for their boss and will likely go the extra mile, whereas if a leader operates a toxic culture, employees will dislike working for them and more than likely do little to support their boss. This is supported by stats from One4all, which stated that 39% of workers would work harder if they are happy in their current role or place of work. Elsewhere, research from Randstad revealed why employees would leave a job, with 60% stating they have left jobs or would consider leaving because they don’t like their supervisors.
