Are good leaders a great role models?
They set the tone for their team, convey important messages and instill confidence in the people around them.
Effective leadership has a lot to do with inspiring, aligning, and then activating -- but it doesn't end there.
Effective leadership starts with a goal in mind and communication.
Communicating the desired outcome of your role as a leader. And listening to address areas where weaknesses are identified.
Having clear expectations in your role as a leader leads to trust building, which is the foundation for leading.
👇Here are the top four skills for Effective Leadership:
Building trust is the foundation for leading. Honesty, clarity, and behavioral predictability all makeup trust. Leaders must adopt the trait of trustworthiness and prioritize it as one of their most important skills -- because without it, people won't feel as confident to follow.
Bring positive energy and a willingness to listen. Being compassionate means caring about your followers holistically while seeing them as more than just their ability to perform.
Ensure people can count on you. Providing stability looks like creating a space where people feel psychologically safe like they can depend on you to answer their questions, hear their ideas and address their concerns.
Encourage people to believe in a better future. While stability focuses on today, hopefulness deals with the future. People need to see that their leaders have a clear direction in mind. They want to have faith that their leaders are guiding them in the right direction.
