Leadership Skills

Hello everyone,

Here I am again with my new post on Leadership Skills. Few days before I was wondering about what skills make people great leaders. Then I did some research and in this post I am highlighting about skills required to become a great leader.

1. Leaders expect great things from their people and drive them to achieve extraordinary results.
2. It isn't how much you know that matters. What matters is how much access you have to what other people know. It isn't just how intelligent your team members are; it is how much of that intelligence you can draw out and put to use.
3. They get more productivity from their currently available resources.
4. They take the time to get to know each person and to understand the capabilities they brought to the team.
5. Leaders identify several roles within the company where they could operate at a higher point of contribution.
6. Leaders studies people. They watches them until they figure out what they are great at.
7. Leaders remove the barriers that block the growth of intelligence in their people.
8. Leaders give permission to make mistakes; people have an obligation to learn from the mistakes and not repeat them.
9. They create space, demand people's best work and generate rapid learning cycles.
10. They better leverage their best salespeople.
11. Leaders develops the talent of the team.
