To be a good leader, you sometimes need to go down the path less travelled. Being bold in the face of uncertainty will help give your team courage and motivate them to keep striving when the going gets tough.
If learning is an important part of leadership, then it follows humility is an essential attribute as well. After all, you can’t learn new things if you cannot admit you’re a work in progress. Be open to recognising your own faults, so you can grow as both a leader and a human being.
Listening To Your People
Your people are your greatest resource; listen to their feedback and encourage their dreams. You never know where your next great idea will come from, so empower everyone up and down the ladder to contribute and innovate.
Striking a Balance
Being a good leader is a balancing act. Your leadership strategy should never rely on just one type of management. It might at first feel like walking a tightrope, but soon balancing multiple leadership attributes will become second nature, and allow you to lead in multiple dimensions.
To be a great leader, there’s no such thing as a challenge too big to handle. Once you adopt this attitude, your people will follow suit, and every problem will present an opening for greater achievement.
“You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.” – Ken Kesey
Leadership is about people.
Leadership is about getting things done together.
Leadership is about working with people like you.
When you are an effective leader, lots of people will like you.
