What is Good Leadership?

In our current climate, authentic leaders are few and far between.

To lead others, I believe we must scale a point on our own journey. People are more likely to follow what they see as to what they hear, linguistically.

Leadership is a skill that can be learned and improved with practice. Leadership is not just about having a title or a position of authority, but about influencing others to achieve a common goal. Leadership is also about being able to adapt to changing situations, communicate effectively, and inspire trust and respect.

– Identify your strengths and weaknesses. A good leader knows their own capabilities and limitations and seeks feedback from others to improve themselves. You can use tools such as self-assessments, 360-degree feedback, or coaching to identify your areas of improvement and set goals for yourself.

– Learn from other leaders. A good leader is always learning from others who have more experience or different perspectives. You can learn from other leaders by reading books, listening to podcasts, watching videos, attending seminars, or finding a mentor. You can also learn from your peers and subordinates by asking for their opinions and suggestions and being open to constructive criticism.

– Practice leadership skills. A good leader is not afraid to take on new challenges and responsibilities and to apply their skills in different contexts. You can practice leadership skills by volunteering for projects, joining clubs or organizations, taking courses or workshops, or seeking opportunities to lead in your workplace or community. You can also practice leadership skills by simulating scenarios or role-playing with others.

– Reflect on your experiences. A good leader is always evaluating their performance and learning from their successes and failures. You can reflect on your experiences by keeping a journal, writing a blog, or having a debrief session with others. You can also reflect on your experiences by asking yourself questions such as: What did I do well? What could I have done better? What did I learn? How can I apply what I learned?

– Seek feedback and support. A good leader is always seeking feedback and support from others to improve themselves and their team. You can seek feedback and support by asking for regular feedback from your superiors, peers, subordinates, or customers. You can also seek feedback and support by building a network of trusted advisors, mentors, coaches, or friends who can offer you guidance, advice, or encouragement.

Developing leadership skills is a lifelong journey that requires commitment, effort, and persistence. By following these tips, you can enhance your leadership potential and become a more effective and influential leader.

“A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way and shows the way” – John Maxwell.
