In my 1-on-1 coaching sessions, leaders often set the goal of leading in a way that moves the team toward peak performance. And to align leadership style with this aspiration, they take time to reflect on their strengths and areas that need improvement. Overtime, this introspection makes it easy for them to adapt to a more effective leadership approach. So, in this article I have highlighted some thought-provoking questions to help you understand how your leadership affects the effectiveness and accomplishments of your team.

Would you like to explore and understand the influence of your leadership style on your team’s overall performance? 

I encourage you to take time and delve deep into your thoughts, feelings, and actions. 

These questions often serve as a powerful motivator for positive change. They even help in increasing the sense of accountability. So, choose to actively engage in introspection and reflection. And validate that you are not merely managing your team but actively guiding them toward peak performance.
