Having a Vision
Having a vision is important in leadership. Not only does having a vision help leaders meet their goals, it also inspires those they’re leading to do the same. Having a vision as a leader inspires enthusiasm in those that follow you, and creates reasoning for courses of actions to be taken that are necessary for growth.
As a leader, communicating effectively is of utmost importance. Communicating frequently as well as directly can create an environment in which ideas are shared and brought to life. Part of communicating as a leader is to actively listen and engage when necessary to motivate others to bring their ideas to the table. As a leader you should be able to identify your audience and adjust your communication style based on their wants and needs.
It is important for leaders to be open-minded and break out of their usual thinking pattern to find new & innovative ideas. Being open-minded improves our understanding and knowledge everyday since it naturally makes us more inquisitive. It also makes us more adaptable to diverse work environments and sudden changes in the workplace.
Prioritizes Personal Development
As a leader it is important to prioritize personal development of each individual team member in order to help them achieve their personal goals & growth as well as making them feel they are an important part of your team. When your team members feel like they are important and their ideas matter, they are more likely to feel more comfortable & confident about sharing their personal views.
Encouraging collaboration is an important step for a leader to have a successful team. The pandemic has reminded leaders the value of collaboration Encouraging collaboration means to emphasize your team’s mission & goals, focus on individual strengths, and to clearly communicate expectations. It also means to be open to new feedback, ideas and opinions from your team.
