Want to become a successful leader? Gain trust of your team

We have often heard that a great leader is one of the important factors in taking a company forward. What we fail to notice is that a leader is not completely alone, he can be successful only if he has a good team working under him. Also, it is essential for the leader to have a good rapport with his team members. Only then will good results be achieved when both the parties are in synchronization. In order to be termed as a successful leader, he first needs to gain the trust of his team.

3 ways to gain trust of your team to become a successful leader

1.     Be supportive

A leader does not do the work alone. He assigns it to his team members and guides them to do it correctly. A successful leader is one who makes sure that the work is done right and intervenes if there is the need for rectifications. As leaders are considered superior to the team, this sense of superiority has got to the heads of a number of leaders. It is important to stay humble despite one’s important position. Also, when a leader is supportive, his team voluntarily prefers being loyal to him and the company. A good leader helps his team when in need and aptly teaches them how to carry out a certain task.

2.     Set an example

You may repeatedly give your team a set of instructions but nothing will be as impactful as a live example. Always remember that if you are preaching something, it is necessary that you yourself follow it first. If you give instructions but don’t follow them yourself, your team will not follow them either. It will give the impression that it is acceptable to break the rules. This is why it is important to set an example by first doing it yourself and then asking others to do so.

3.     Know your job

You have been appointed the leader for a reason. And the reason is that you either have more experience in the field than others or more knowledge. A successful leader is one who passes on this knowledge to his team instead of keeping it to himself. Also, as he knows his job well, he can advise the same to his team. Knowledge is made for spreading, not locking it up in one part of your brain. Along with this, the leader must keep updating himself with the times to ensure high work productivity at all times.
