Kevin Kruse

Your management style may be rooted in principles from the Industrial Revolution, involving rules and fear or separating yourself from your team to appear authoritative. Alternatively, you might use opposite practices, such as being available at all times and being overly supportive. Both ways, you're not taking advantage of your leadership potential. In order to maximize your and your team's performance and productivity, you should embrace nontraditional leadership traits like transparency, love, and vulnerability. Ban smartphones. Florida State University research found that you are three times more likely to make a mistake when you're working when you receive a notification, or someone calls you, whether you answer it or not. Even if your phone is off, you will have trouble performing if it is in your sight. So, put a 'No Smartphones' sign in meeting rooms as a way to boost productivity in your team and ask everyone to abide by it. Make a positive example by silent your mobile device at work, putting it away, and checking it no more than three times a day.
