What is Leadership

Leaders help themselves and others to do the right things. They set direction, build a motivating vision, and create something fresh.. Leadership is about mapping out how to win as a team. Leaders also set the direction, they must also use management skills to guide their people to the right destination, in a fluid and efficient way.

What it takes to be a Leader

Key Factors of Being a Good Leader

If you’re in a leadership role, good communication skills are absolutely necessary. Using language to perform one-to-one communication is really all that we have as human beings.

1.

“Integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.” You can’t expect your followers to be honest when you lack integrity yourself. 

2.

“A good leader takes little more than his share of the blame and little less than his share of the credit.” A strong leader is accountable for the team’s results, good or bad. They hold themselves accountable for their actions.

3.

A great leader will never be effective if they’re more concerned with themselves than with the well-being of their team. 

4.

“Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision, passionately own the vision, and relentlessly drive it to completion.”

5.

Setting the right example

As a leader, part of your job is to inspire the people around you to push themselves to greatness. To do this, you must show them how by doing it yourself.

Be a Good Listener

A good leader listens and tries to understand the thoughts of others. It is essential to be companionate and kind towards people in order to win their confidence and trust.

Be a Motivator

A leader has to be a motivator and must realize that they can become successful only when their team members succeed; leaders are concerned with the success of others.

Make sound and timely decisions

It is important that you are in a position to make informed decisions quickly. By staying up to speed with good problem solving, decision making and planning tools, you must continue to learn, read and research. You will be in a position of strength to lead your team.

Seek and take responsibility for your actions

As a leader, others will look to you for guidance and motivation. When things go wrong, you must take responsibility. Others will turn to you to take corrective and decisive action. How you respond in times of adversity provides you with an opportunity to show an example of being a good leader.

Maintain a Positive Attitude 

By having a positive attitude, you are more likely to create a more engaged and productive environment. By displaying excitement and confidence, a good leader will understand the impact of their attitude and use that to bring motivation to their team.
