Being a better Leader.
1. Communication Is Key
Clear communication is an important part of any successful relationship, and the relationship between leader and team member is no different. Express your ideas clearly, making sure people understand what you’re asking of them. Create a conversation-friendly environment, and give employees the freedom to express their thoughts and concerns. Team members are more willing to trust a leader with whom they are able to openly communicate. It is more true to say many successful leaders are those who can communicate in a friendly way with a smile.
2. Know Yourself
What does this mean? It means being able to identify your strengths and weaknesses as well. An easy way to do this is to make a really big decision, write some expectations and wait after a year then evaluate yourself. Why do this? It basically helps coz you will get to know where you messed up, what you did very well, what you need to do, where you need help and many other lessons. Anyway that is just one way. There are many ways to kill a rat after-all. All you need to know to be a better leader is to know yourself.
3.Devising effective strategy.
You have feet in your shoes
You can steer yourself any direction you choose
You’re on your own.
And you know what you know.
And YOU are the guy who’ll decide where to go. –-Dr. Seuss
4.Focus And Discipline
Successful leaders are always disciplined. They know how to work on starategies faithfully with a lot of discipline. They even know how to shake hands and dream with great discipline. They set on action on what they can fulfill . This focus enables them to drive action and achieve results. You can spot a good leader because they are so focused on the goal while inspiring and encouraging others to participate.
Successful leaders are humble. They do realize “We are all human.” Leaders recognize and embrace this. They do not put themselves on any pedestals but treat others the way they expect to be treated and work to support the overall efforts of a group. They are receptive to new ideas and realize that they are not the only ones that can foster change.
A good leader listens and can accept that a different way of doing things might be better than maintaining an existing situation. They do not judge but are open, establishing trust and mutual respect.
There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man,
True nobility is being superior to your former self,
It is unwise to be too sure of one’s own wisdom.
It is healthy to be reminded that the strongest might weaken and the wisest might er!
True humility is not thinking less of yourself,
It is thinking of yourself less
A true genius admits that he/she knows nothing.
