To ensure your company’s success you need people who are secure enough in themselves to contribute, to make decisions, to see things from multiple angles. Self- worth is what makes people focus not only on their own goals but on working and succeeding as a team. Make sure people you work with are engaged in their job not preoccupied with asking themselves “how am I coming across?”
Self-worth also brings two benefits related to each other: energy and resilience. Both seem crucial in a world where so many people feel overwhelmed, exhausted etc. And they are precious as well as for individuals as for the whole teams.
Professionals appreciate leaders who develop their self-worth and self-belief. This approach stands in opposition to leadership based on self-focus. Today we can see, a lot of team cultures that are self-esteem-based, rather than self-worth-based. It means that some leaders get the needs of their own Ego met at the expense of their teams. As the result they often lose good employees, who are fed up with being patronised or micro-managed.
Service rating is not everything and clients appreciate these suppliers and advisers who are focused on their needs. If you would like your company to be valued and treated as a real partner not a servant then, focus on developing your self-worth.
Negotiations are a natural part of running a business and self-worth is in essential in doing it well. Without self-worth, people have difficulty setting boundaries, saying No, managing scope and creating deals that are beneficial for both sides. They may capitulate too easily, or take things personally, rather than focusing on the negotiation’s goal and working out the win-win situations.
Self-worth is essential in business-development. This is not just about theoretical knowledge but about using your skills in practice. It takes self-worth to practice things like: communication, presentation, adding insights and focusing on value.
People you work with are probably rethinking their professional identity by analysing how their work fits into their lives. This is not just about what they do, but who they are in the workplace. Taking this into account they gravitate to leaders and organisations who develop their professional identity and help them grow.
Are you wondering about how can leaders develop a culture of self-worth at work that develops talent and business?
