You An Effective Leader?
Great leaders keep up with trends but
never follow fads, they are decisive but don't feel they must always
be right and they are logical while also seeking ways to develop and
use their intuition.
"Leadership involves realistic acceptance of yourself (the good,
the bad and the ugly), willingness to learn and grow, and an ability
not to want to win every time." A great leader is not
"born" as the old saying goes. Instead, he or she is someone
who is passionate about what they do - or want to do - and prepared to
learn the skills and values required to lead others.
are a few tips from Effective Leaders:
- Lead by example.
- Communicate a clear, strong vision
whenever talking about their organisation and its people. They
keep that vision/picture of the future desired state in mind no
matter what is happening around them.
- Set strategy and direction.
- Access and trust their intuition
- Speak to and treat others with the
dignity and respect they desire themselves.
- Are able to reduce the complex to
- Persevere and follow through on
everything they say they are going to do.
- They are interesting and
- They recognise the achievements of
their team as a collective as well as those of individuals.
- They always go for the highest
good for their organisation.
- They create challenges for their
Leadership habits that you should avoid:
- Managers who use the outdated and
ineffective "command and control" style of leadership.
This style of leadership not only stunted the business leader's
development but also the development of everyone around them.
