HOW TO IMPROVE LEADERSHIP SKILLS
ENCOURAGE EMPLOYEES TO DISAGREE WITH YOU
No one should be afraid to speak the truth in a respectful fashion. There should always be room for improvement.
Empower your employees and then let them do their jobs. Don’t let them make a decision, agree with the decision and then turn around and go against them.
Positive relationships encourage employees to care about their work.
VOW TO BE CONSTANTLY LEARNING AND CURIOUS
You don’t know what you don’t know.
Understand your work style and how it affects others. Evaluate yourself; Celebrate your talents; Be open for improvement.
Stick to one goal at a time.
GET RID OF POOR MANAGERS
If they are not team players, they don’t belong on the team. Integrity and honesty are critical to success.
PRACTICE LEADERSHIP SKILLS DAILY
Studies show that experts have practiced their skills an average of 10,000 hours in their lifetime. Always practice being a leader.
