Scarce resources means that you have to be creative in getting people motivated to work for you. Leadership is a big word. So how can you gauge how effective you are as a leader. Here are some quick ways.
It’s good to do a self assessment periodically so that you can stay on your A game. Most people are better at it than others. Me, I tend to pick up the clues that people give whether it be a joke or a feedback sit down session. The feedback can be good or bad, it doesn’t really matter which because both are good to hear. Just be prepared to listen for them in everyday conversation.
One question that you should ask yourself is this, If you had no money to pay employees, would people still want to work for you for free? Better yet, would you want to work for yourself?
Don’t ask me about how I think I am as a leader.
