Performance and leadership are very closely related in the workplace. In other words, good leadership can increase performance among your employees in the workplace.

Having said that, here are 5 leadership tools you can use in increasing employee performance in the workplace...

Leadership Tool#1:

Provide a clear and compelling vision and purpose that will inspire and motivate people.
You can:

·        Align this vision to the corporate vision or the bigger picture. Once people understand where they fit in, as well as what their contributions are, then they'll have a sense of purpose, which is a great motivator.

·        Release some energy by allowing the employees to help define the vision.
