To be a leader, one must set an example that people can follow rather than just give rules, and that is what helps in maintaining a healthy relationship with the workers. That is what David Humphreys CEO of TAMKO has been able to achieve making him serve the company for over twenty years which has helped the roofing company boost their sales. When one is a leader they are accountable for each action they take, so, how is it possible to lead and boost the growth a company for long without falling back?
Your attitude can make or break how one associates with their workers since individuals will be scared of talking to someone who can blow of any moment when triggered the wrong way. There has to be someone to inject positivity into the company, and one has to be the driving force since workers focus on your behavior to know to react to a situation. A leader needs to ask questions rather than always talking and saying how things need to be done because by asking your workers what needs to be done, the company can move upwards.
Trust goes two ways and if one wants the workers to trust them, you have to set the pace and ensure that trust is maintained throughout the period one works with those individuals. Running roofing companies comes with many years of experience and learning from others but one should not force their employees to learn, and you are not taking the same steps. The expectations one has for their workers and the words one uses while talking to them all shows what type of a person one is and how far employees are willing to sacrifice just for you.
Communication is essential in any organization setting since people share ideas and talk about some of the challenges they are facing. Individuals wait until a company collapses or is going through crises and the top leaders are always in the spotlight, so be the type who shows everyone the way. A leader leads, so help your employees if a certain thing becomes hard for them to deal with the situation since your clear steps shed a light in their path.
Being a roofing company means there will be meetings from time to time which a leader should attend as a way of knowing what people want with their positions and changes they would love to see. Your presence means a lot when people are carrying out a task since people need to notice you and be happy working in your company. To lead, people must see you as capable and that will only happen if one maintains their reputation and sticks to the goals and objectives of the company.
