The title might seem obvious, but that doesn’t make it any less true: If you don’t lead, no one will follow. And here’s the problem: “leadership” is one of those buzzwords that gets thrown around a lot. But in many cases, those throwing it around have little understanding of what leadership really is or what it actually looks like in action.
That’s the bad news. The good news is effective leadership can be learned. It begins with defining the destination and direction of your company, department or team and deciding how they should look and operate when they arrive.
Being a leader also means that you must develop a set of personal skills (like being disciplined, motivated, calm under pressure, and an effective communicator) and continually improve on those skills. And most importantly, being a good leader means developing other leaders within your organization. No leader, no matter how strong, can move a business or department to exceptional success alone.
