Free? Free? What do you mean, free? What can you, as a leader, do in your organization to improve company performance without spending any money? From experience working with leaders inside organizations such as IBM, Headwaters, and Headstart as well as research into what drives organizational performance, we have uncovered five things leaders can do that will not cost them a penny and, when implemented effectively, will make a positive impact on their top and bottom lines. What are these ‘magic’ activities? Let's take a look. Start with creating a culture of trust. While we can't make people trust each other, leaders can create an environment that fosters trust building. Next, Agile is based on team ownership. However, many leaders struggle with how to help teams take ownership and often make the mistake by taking ownership back from teams.Leaders cannot change or "fix" people. People do what they are passionate about. Leaders who match passion and skills to roles on teams can see improved productivity. Finally, integrity is essential. These tools are all free.
