10 Tips To Become an Awesome Leader:
Some coaches will encourage you to take the time to find your leadership style, but I’ll go ahead and stop you right now. Congratulations! You’ve found it! It’s Servant Leadership.
Life isn’t all about leadership. Find a hobby! Play an instrument! Do puzzles! Broadening your horizons helps you solve complex problems and view the world creatively.
Leadership is simple: demonstrate to those you lead what it is you want. Be your own best employee and you will be rewarded with more awesome employees.
The best leaders in the world are passionate. Why? Passion is contagious! So, find your passion, whatever it is, and people will be excited to follow.
Not only is passion contagious, but so is positivity. Just do it! We enjoy being around positive people, and opposites don’t attract – optimism keeps the negative Nellies away.
Communication is key in any relationship, and listening is key to communication. Become a great listener and a great communicator – there’ll be no stopping you!
Give your team the ability to make a difference and be effective. Some of the best teams have multiple leaders, so let them do what they need to do to be great.
Delegating is a great way to empower your team and take things off your plate at the same time. Give yourself the bandwidth to focus less on organizational tasks and more on strategic decisions.
Show appreciation for the people and things around you. Do it regularly and do it honestly – you’ll thank yourself.
No matter how old you are and how much you already know, you can always level up. Keep growing and trying new things.
