You may think of yourself as a “born leader”. Or you’ve had good role models who helped in developing your leadership skills.
One thing is for sure: to be a great leader you need to adjust your leadership style to suit the personalities on your team.
That’s the only way to bring out the best in them.
And successfully reaching the goals you set out for you and your organization.
Choosing the right people
Begin with choosing the right people for your team. To start with, make sure they have a good track record.
Then choose based on their individual strengths. And their ability to work well with the rest of the team.
Share vision. Goals
Motivate your team. Share with them a compelling vision of the future of your organization.
Motivate and inspire them: make them feel they make a difference. Focus on getting results.
Work-Life balance: for you as well as your team
Create a culture of high performance: appreciate and reward hard work. But also allow time for fun and leisure.
When there is work-life balance, the productivity is going up.
There are two things to aim at in life;
first to get what you want,
and after that to enjoy it.
Only the wisest of mankind
has achieved the second.
