Survey: Nearly 25% of Leaders Breach Conduct Guidelines

A survey undertaken by the Chartered Management Institute revealed that nearly a quarter of leaders had knowingly breached professional conduct guidelines at work, with men significantly more likely to do so (30%) than their female counterparts (19%).

Moreover, of the 1,000 bosses questioned, nearly 25% had not even bothered to read their employer’s or professional body’s code of conduct, while almost three quarters of those belonging to a professional association did not even know such guidance existed or that they were required to follow it.

Nonetheless, three out of five said that they would think better of colleagues if they made an effort to abide to such rules. The Chartered Management Institute has recently reviewed and updated its mandatory Code of Professional Conduct and Practice and renamed it the ‘Code of Practice for Professional Managers’.

5 key ways to demonstrate effective leadership

Our leadership courses promote the effective and practical skills and strategies the modern manager must employ to run their teams more effectively.

1. Purpose and values

Give your team a sense of purpose and ensure they all know the values you hold as high priority. Members of high performing teams share a sense of common purpose. They are clear about what constitutes the team’s ‘work’ and why it is important. They can describe a picture of what the team needs to achieve, and the norms and values that will guide them.

2. Empowerment

Empower your team towards success. Members are confident about the team’s ability to overcome obstacles and realise its purpose. A sense of mutual respect enables members to share responsibilities, help each other out, and take initiative to meet challenges. Members have opportunities to grow and learn new skills.

3. Relationships and communication

The team is committed to open communication. All relevant information is available for teams to be able to make effective decisions. Team members feel they can state their opinions, thoughts and feelings without fear. Listening is considered as important speaking. Differences of opinion and perspective are valued and methods of managing conflict are understood.

4. Flexibility

Ensure that your team members are flexible, and they perform different tasks and maintenance functions as needed. The responsibility for team development and leadership is shared. When the team is fluid and open to both opinions and feelings they are more likely to work hard and work fun.

5. Recognition and appreciation

By far the biggest motivator. Team  members who feel highly regarded within the team, experience a sense of personal accomplishment in relation to their team and task contributions.
