Failure and the leader

(peoplematters)

Leaders are responsible for solving problems and delivering results. They can seldom play the blame game in case of failures.

 

Not everyone has the same reaction to failures and success, especially failure. For a leader though it is essential to take both success and failure in their stride and move ahead. When failure strikes leaders must have the will and skills to overcome the failure while taking the team along with them to the other side. It may not be acceptable for a leader to pass the buck to avoid scrutiny on themselves.

 

Some tips on how failures and challenges effect a leadership positions and their careers

 

Never pass the buck

If you’ve been entrusted with a leadership role, never, ever pass the blame on anyone else. Accept the challenges that come your way as they are and work towards the solution. It is an incredibly important leadership quality, and if you falter at that, your leadership position is irreparably undermined.

 

Taking responsibility

Every leader is answerable to other leaders higher up in the hierarchy. The sign of a true leader is that other senior leaders can put their trust in him. That is possible only when the said leader accepts complete responsibility of any results produced by his team. Senior leadership is always well aware of problems. They need solutions to those problems, and not count the shortcomings of preceding leaders. Effective leaders who make a lasting impact never mention their predecessors, unless they must point out something good done by them.

 

Time-tested lessons for leaders

Taking responsibility is just the tip of the iceberg. Here are three time-tested lessons for leaders to help them achieve that.

 

Complete ownership

If you are constantly worried about protecting yourself because your ego would not allow you to take the fall, then you’re doing it wrong. Not only would you lose the trust of your team, but also of your senior leadership, effectively telling them that you are unsuitable to lead in your present role.

 

Always back your team

Never leave your team hanging in the balance, support them at each step of the way. When leaders install the feeling of security among their team, they “create an environment where everyone has the capacity to do remarkable things.” Empower them by showing them how things are done, and delegate that work to them so that they may learn valuable business lessons that are not taught in the classrooms.

 

Simplify everything and focus

Leave any complications at the door and simplify everything for your team so that they may have an opportunity to focus and deliver quicker results. If they lose focus on priorities and get overwhelmed by distractions and complications, you lose as a leader.

 

Leaders are responsible for fixing problems and delivering results. They have to create a vision for their team to follow. In order to do so, they must first hold themselves accountable as leaders of the team, and point out any shortcomings to themselves before anyone else does. Passing the buck never allows that to happen, and that’s why it is not desirable for leaders at any stage.
