It’s the last of our micro leadership course. So there is a bonus. This time there are FOUR skills to focus on.
Your four leadership skills are:
Act – Talking and thinking won’t get the results that Action will. Leadership is not a theory, it is an action. So take action and be the leader you want to be.
Authenticity – Be yourself. Get inspiration and ideas from others but be yourself. Adapt the ideas and skills to your style. It will then be natural for you to lead.
Appreciate – Thank the people who support you and your team, regardless of how small their contribution. Words and gestures of appreciation make a far bigger difference that you can imagine. Even if someone is doing what they are supposed to, showing appreciation makes a big difference.
Share – A leader takes a little more than their fair share of the blame and a little less than their fair share of the accolades. Have some humility. It will make you more attractive as a leader and will create a massive sense of loyalty in those around you.
Don’t forget to measure your progress. Using the ten simple leadership skills you have received over the last three weeks will make a huge difference in what you can achieve as a team in your personal and professional life.
Go for it!
