Effective Management Tips For New Executive Leaders

Starting a business or taking the management position in an existing organization is an opportunity and a challenge for a new Executive Leader. While some individuals may already have the tools to become an effective leader, many also need management experience to establish their leadership style.

Use your time as a worker to inform your decisions as a leader. Most executives don't start out as executives and have a wealth of experiences working for different managers with different styles of leadership. Former bosses can be a valuable resource for advice or, if they are not available, they can also serve as guides on how to (or how not to) handle situations. Being able to see your workers' point of view will help you communicate with them for the best results.

Find your own style, but be the leader. Each organization has its own unique needs and dynamics. Although some businesses can be very casual, try to establish yourself as the executive decision maker. This can be a challenge especially for leaders who rose to their positions and are now managing former co-workers. This is not to say you must drastically change your relationships or manage with an iron fist. Rather, you should find the level of authority that is most effective in motivating your staff.

Be clear and consistent in your decisions and in communicating those decisions. As a manager or director, you will have to address at least two sets of people: your workers and your clients. Find a system that works for your business and use it as often as is appropriate. More communication is not always better communication. Take the time to have your decisions as fleshed out as possible and your information as clear as possible when addressing your workers or your clients.

At the same time, be flexible. In business as in any facet of life, unexpected events occur, and the mark of an effective leader is the ability to not only adjust to those events but to take advantage of them as well. Don't expect everything to proceed perfectly every time, and be willing to take things in a different direction if that seems advantageous. Be open-minded to suggestions from your workers but remember that, as executive manager, the final decision is up to you.

Stand by and take responsibility for the results of your decisions. Not every decision will produce the results you expect, and there is always room for improvement. Acknowledge any mistakes made along the way, but always with an eye to future opportunities. Workers can feel confident carrying out your decisions if they know you will stand by the results. Additionally, clients will appreciate your willingness to learn and move on from any portions of a project or case that was not as successful as you had hoped.

The position of executive leadership requires the ability to balance many factors. Finding what works for you and your organization is key to your success as a leader and ultimately the success of your business.
