Sreejith Krishnan explains the 10 c's of leadership
1. CLARITY....let your team know why and what they are doing, share your vision and their contribution to the vision and success of the business. People want to have clarity so they are more engaged in their work and tasks. Clarity of purpose 2.

CONNECT.. connect and engage with your employee both on a professional and personal level., they will feel valued 4. COMPLIMENT ... Never forget to compliment an employee, they are the biggest asset in your business and they need to be appreciated 5.

CELEBRATE ..celebrate good and bad, small and big achievements with your team, make them feel engaged. Celebrate life achievements of employees 7. COLLABORATE ...Assign teams to work together, encourage team building. Everyone enjoys social contact with each other 8. COACH ....

Deepak Chopra discusses leadership through the following acronym L - look and listen through soul, heart and emotions E - emotional bonding A - awareness D - dare to dream a new reality and do it E - empowerment and sharing a vision R - responsibilities S - synchronicity ( opportunity meets preparedness) A transactional leader will stunt growth, creativity and innovation As a leader you should constantly be reviewing how you manage relationships and refine your approach to relationships, as it is how your message is received by others and not always the message you intended. Good leaders will be the "boat" that will transport your team to either pain or pleasure Island, and you as the leader will determine the destination. We all have to work together to gain success....My Success is Your success Again I ask, Are you a transactional or transformational leader?
