leadership

“Everyone has power at work”, writes Sephora Cutajar, Senior Human Resources Business Partner at London-based firm, Gingko People.

Sharing her views on how power could lead to productivity at the workplace, and therefore contribute to the success of a business, Ms Cutajar says “From the CEO to the intern, and from juniors to partners, each and every person contributes something to the business they work for.”

The HR professional adds that while employees tend to be absorbed by their day-to-day purpose, rather than their actual contribution to the company, those in leadership positions can use specific techniques to “remind everyone of their power.”

Tips for business leaders

Ms Cutajar recommends opening the floor to new voices and letting someone else take the lead.

“Ask the newbie for their insights as contributing from the get-go instils confidence,” she recommends, as well as “Take a step back: no one likes to be micromanaged, so let people crack on.”

The HR expert says speaking to someone in your organisation who you wouldn’t normally speak to is a good way of showing an interest in others, and “Hold ideas-gen sessions with junior staff” – this will allow them to contribute in a big way.
