I Am A Leader.

Published on 6/6/2012

I am a leader. I am not talking about me, I am talking about you. Look at yourself and say “I am a leader” Believe you are a leader because you are. Leadership skills can be learned. Work with your strengths and strengthen your weaknesses to become the leader you truly are.

Be a follower. Have a role model. Before you can become a leader you must first be a follower. Find someone who can inspire you to be a truly great leader. Learn from that person and you too will become a great leader.

Be an expert. Know what you're talking about, don’t ever fake knowledge. If you don't know what you need to know, find it out. Learn everything there is to learn and practice it. Use your life experience and skills you already possess, identify your strengths and weaknesses. Share your vision. Share your vision and let people claim it as their own. Share a positive vision that will excite, motivate and guide people. Show people what actions take everyone closer to that dream, give them a plan. leaders can share goals that inspire people and unite them in pursuit of objectives and a common goal. Let the vision spread to other people, step away and let the people do the work, let them follow the plan.

Think of the big picture. Study problems and look for patterns, they might be symptoms of bigger problem. The bigger problem is something that will require a team effort and that is where your role as a leader comes into play.

Be decisive. A great leader listens to opinions, asks questions, debates issues and challenges positions. Evaluate your decisions in advance and look at them from every angle. Predict the problems that could appear and instead of waiting for problems to appear, take steps to prevent them. Plans often fail because of unforeseen consequences. A good leader takes effective action to prevent or create situations before they actually happen. When the time to discuss and debate is over, make a decision and move on.

Take responsibility for the consequences of your decisions. Not only do you need to be able to make good decisions, you also need to be willing to be held accountable if things go wrong.

Be available. Leave the channels of communication open, email, chat, telephone, webinars etc. Be ready to help when asked.

Guide people and remind them of the vision and their common goal. Care about the people you lead. Genuine concern is always appreciated. Ask people about family, hobbies and interests etc. Find out what matters to each person, their health, their partner, their children, their relatives, their interests, their hopes, their fears and dreams. Appreciate people for who they are and what they do, praise them constantly. Always thank people for what they do.

Train yourself and your team. A good leader will always be learning and working to improve his or her performance through education. You should also provide regular training to developing each team member to be more and more confident and more skilled. Delegate, you don't have to do everything yourself. Train your team members to take over some of the things you've been doing.
