Recently, I was talking with a group of employees about the one leadership skill they felt was absolutely essential to be an effective leader.
Do you have leadership skills? Are you a know-it-all? I hope so, because people that are really good at what they do have a passion for learning and sharing information about what they know.
In a previous article I introduced an upcoming article series titled the Top 10 Barriers to Leadership. This first installment is about Listening Strategies.
Each of you, as leaders, has a passion for achieving your leadership goals and aspirations.
Perhaps one of the best parts of being an effective leader is knowing that the work you choose to do each day is in alignment with your personal goals and convictions and values.
Recently, I was working with a team of managers on their organization’s leadership culture when one of the participants received an urgent call from his manager, who told him to fly back to corporate headquarters right away.
To be successful, leaders must take a personal, leadership check-up. This isn’t something that is boring or time consuming. A leadership check up involves taking a few minutes to reflect and understand your leadership skills, your opportunities, where you’re going, and where you want to be. It’s like preventative care and maintenance for leaders.
I want to personally thank the About Leaders community for your commitment to leadership.
Why do you do your job? For leadership opportunities?
Last week I heard a group of leaders say, “If we could just get great employees to want to come to work and work when they are here we would be unstoppable!” Can you relate to this?
