It is often said that anyone can become a boss but it takes special type of personality to become a great leader. While I do believe that certain individuals take to leadership easier than others, becoming a great leader that your team can depend on is something that can, in fact, be learned and perfected.
Take into account these 10 easy ways that Forbes.com believes will help you to not only become a great leader but gain the respect of your team in the process.
- Communication is the key to success.
- Clearly map out a plan and the expectations to achieve the goals.
- Empower people by providing whatever resources they need to succeed.
- Treat people with dignity and respect.
- Be consistent.
- Show employees that you trust and respect them.
- Lead by example.
- Celebrate the little victories.
- Take everyone’s input and then act decisively.
- Don’t micromanage.
While some of these concepts would appear to be common sense over anything else, it might surprise you to know these ideals are not as prevalent as one might expect to see in the workplace. Something as simple as listening to what your employees have to say and treating them as you would want to be treated can go a long way with building those important relationships with your team.
