Empowering Teams: Marino Sussich’s Approach to Advanced Leadership

Empowering Teams Marino Sussich’s Approach to Advanced Leadership

Empowering teams is essential to foster productivity, collaboration, and creativity. Finding the best way to do this can be challenging, though. Marino Robert Sussich, a Melbourne business leader, has been helping to empower teams and leaders. Read on for his top tips.

Setting clear expectations

Clear expectations about the roles and responsibilities of all your team members is the first step to empowering your team. Understanding team members’ priorities and objectives and how their work contributes to their goals and the organisation’s success

Encouraging open communication

Fostering a culture of open communication is essential for team members to feel comfortable sharing their concerns, ideas, and feedback. This culture will encourage more one-on-one discussions, brainstorming sessions, and team meetings.

Provide training and development opportunities

Investing in training and development programs helps your team enhance their skills, expertise, and knowledge and supports growth and opportunities. A side benefit of developing training programs is the environment of continuous learning, which improves team morale.

Provide autonomy and flexibility

Giving your teams flexibility and autonomy to make their own decisions, manage their work and prioritise tasks empowers them to meet deadlines while looking for new ways of working. A side benefit for your business will be a supportive and inclusive environment where team members feel valued, appreciated, and empowered.

Recognise and acknowledge good work

As a leader, you must take the time to recognise all your employees. While some may work harder than others, providing opportunities for reward and recognition is essential. 

Having set times throughout the months and years where you can regularly provide positive feedback and acknowledgement of hard work contributes positively to team culture. It also signals that as a leader, you care about the people who work for you.

Create opportunities for career development

Empowering teams as a leader also requires that you retain employees. A simple way to do this is to provide career development opportunities, from cross-training in another department to developing a new skill to being part of a mentor program. Involving your team in developing their careers improves their confidence and self-worth and can help them contribute more value to your company.
