As leaders, the first step to working successfully with our employees is developing trust, by communicating a genuine interest in the values, concerns, and goals of the supervisee and communicating a desire for collaboration.



A transformational or servant leader works to find a shared agenda with his supervisee, recognizing that an employee that works towards a goal that he or she personally values is an employee that will experience a sense of ownership and responsibility for the outcome of that goal.



A successful leader elicits from an employee his thoughts about wanting to engage in the targeted behavior, his sense that he can successfully engage in that behavior, and what his own reasons may be for engaging in the behavior or change.
