These Nine Leadership Tips are Game Changers

When you are a great leader, it helps your team feel like they can rely on you, trust you, and that you have their best interests at heart. Some leadership skills are innate, but not to worry if they don’t come naturally; some can be learned. Here are our top nine tips for being an effective leader and helping your team succeed:

  1. Always Be LearningTRC-27024 Staffing April leadership msg (1)

    Whether it be networking events, leadership conferences, training, management books, or other tools, it is vital to continuously focus on ways you can improve and how you can become a more effective leader.

  2. Listen to Feedback

    Does your team have feedback, positive or negative? Take this and analyze what they are saying, universal themes, and pain points so you can take their input constructively and pivot accordingly.

  3. Emulate Leaders You Respect

    Whether it is people you know and work with directly, industry innovators, or people in your personal life, take the skills and qualities you appreciate in them to find your leadership style.

  4. Communicate

    Speak up for what is right or wrong, and don’t be afraid to offer constructive feedback and recommendations.

  5. Find Mentors and Mentees

    It is smart to identify a mentor of your own who can help you learn and grow, and it is also wonderful to put it out there that you would love to mentor others and help them grow in their career.

  6. Lead by Example

    Do what you say and say what you do. Sometimes staying late with the team to finish a time-sensitive project or going the extra mile in any capacity shows them your commitment and inspires them to have a comparable work ethic.

  7. Face your Fears

    Not everyone is a natural extrovert or leader. The more that you face your fears head-on, the more you will gain confidence and leadership ability.

  8. Be Authentic

    To be a respected leader, it is critical to be genuine, humble, and honest.

  9. Give Credit Where Credit is Due

    A recent study uncovered that 63% of respondents in a survey about bosses and management responded that a boss taking credit for their work was unacceptable or a deal-breaker for them. It is imperative that you lift up your team and recognize and celebrate their achievements.
