    Improving Leadership

    In his book Heroic Leadership, Christ Lowney suggests several things to improve production and assist us to maintain a positive attitude as well as a healthy body. As we circulate in the office or plant, be aware of our influence on the employees. The self-awareness will show us if we are suppressing creativity or positively encouraging production.

    If our presence is neutral, we might take some continuing education or locate the cutting edge of our business on the world scene. We may need to stop producing horse collars and manufacture joystick controls. To change requires ingenuity. Trying something new may create fear but don’t let it stop forward progress.

    We might also spread love. A popular show in 2011-12 was Undercover Boss. Each CEO that worked incognito with employees learned the hardship others endured or had overcame. Often when the period was over, they lavished gifts upon them or offered ways to advance in the company. Leaders need to occasionally realize how others are struggling to make the company successful.

    Find a way to recognize and publicize the heroism of the workers on the bottom run of the ladder. The business will flourish when they know you care and love them for their efforts.
