Celebrate Direct Reports’ Accomplishments

If you have children and have sat through one of their graduation ceremonies, you know the mixed feelings you experienced; a mix of joy, sadness, and pride – pride for the accomplishment of the graduate and pride for the contributions you’ve made to the graduate’s success.

Leaders should feel the same pride for their direct reports’ achievements.  If they continuously challenge their direct reports to develop while providing resources and removing obstacles for their success, they should feel deep pleasure and satisfaction.  In fact, the resumes of leaders today will often include the development and accomplishments of their direct reports, as well as their own accomplishments.

Effective leaders empower their direct reports to succeed and revel in their accomplishments.
