As leaders, we need to see the value of helping others believe in themselves.
Sam Walton said, “Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.”
How can we achieve this?
Express confidence. A word of encouragement motivates people to accomplish great work.
Give responsibility. Responsibility shows we trust them to achieve the task.
Handle failure appropriately. Help others learn from it, evaluate, pick up, and move forward.
Express confidence. If we begin and end with telling others we believe in them and what they can accomplish, greatness will result.
