They are aware that part of their function is to embrace change and the challenges it brings. Cultivating your staff. The most important role a leader must fulfill is to cultivate, support and nurture employees. Anything can be achieved with fertile enough ground to plant and grow the seeds of accomplishment. To best achieve this end, it is important to: Learn and remember: Leaders know part of their role is to learn everything about every person under their charge. They make it a point to learn what is important to each, to celebrate special days, achievements and even sadness with outward expressions, incentives, written memos, awards, notes and letters. Nothing builds loy- alty and cooperation in employees better than being both professionally and per- sonally attuned to them. Demonstrate fairness and a cooperative spirit: Leaders work with their employees to maintain high levels of motivation and productive team efforts. They do this by clearly educating their employees on specific procedures, problems and needed skills. Leaders also acknowledge and take seriously the expectations employees have of them. This role builds trust, loyalty and the desire for all to achieve. Walk the floor – get your hands dirty: Part of a leader's role is to offer help when and where it is needed. This can only be done by personally taking part in tasks and assignments and being an overall active participant in what is going on in the workplace. When leaders fulfill this role, knowledge is gathered, problems are disclosed and people are motivated. What's more, employees gain respect for leaders who willingly undertake this interaction in a positive fashion rather than view it as an obligation. Leaders recognize the status quo often isn't good enough – and that it takes change and creativity to generate improvements. " " Reach more RV Pros!
