Nurturing Leadership: An Impactful Approach to Authentic Team Building
For Corey Dinkel, newly named President of EXCEL Group, optimal leadership prioritizes an approach that produces vulnerable teams and fosters future leaders.
Corey surrounds himself with individuals whose attitudes, work ethic, and personal traits precede experience. He believes skills can be developed through training, while everyone brings their unique, innate mindset. "When we see others as individuals who want to bring their best self to work every day and provide for their family, we're advancing their lives," shares Corey.
Genuine and direct communication holds immense value for Corey, who provides a positive, inclusive atmosphere. He gives reassurance as he listens and extends his expertise after his team shares their opinions. "My role doesn't exist to tell people what to do; my role exists to offer guidance, sanity checks, and support." To Corey, every role has equal input and is valued across the board.
While optimizing productivity and collaborative efficiency remains an important goal for Corey, the path to achieving it may not align with conventional expectations. Corey shares, "Expressing appreciation isn't a common practice for many, but by inundating people with positivity and love, that's where growth momentum begins."
Corey's leadership is characterized by his natural ability to guide himself and others, foster an environment conducive to growth, and embrace the inherent challenges and learning processes.
In the spirit of fostering a positive atmosphere, let us initiate conversations that acknowledge the collective intelligence within our teams. Let us support, listen intently, and value every role equally to foster an environment where diverse prospectives thrive.
