For the past two decades, I’ve been interviewing and observing successful C-level executives to discover the secrets of their success. In a previous post, I documented the core beliefs of extraordinary bosses. Now it’s time for something more tactical – the simple ground rules for managing a team effectively:
1. They Avoid Creating Superstars
Average bosses sometimes allow one employee to become the “star” of the team while ignoring the hard work of everyone else. The “star” gets plenty of recognition and attention, while the rest of the team gets shunted aside. This alienates everybody except the star and sends people the message that their contribution is not valued.
Extraordinary bosses coordinate individual workers’ goals so that they intersect with and support team goals. Such bosses compensate based on how the team (rather than just the individual) performs and encourage top performers to use their talents to create a broader level of success.
