Be aware of the fact that not everything is as simple as black and white – and that there are many shades of grey. Leaders must realize that each situation is not necessarily summed up as right or wrong, perhaps it’s just different than what they are used to.
(Communication) To effectively communicate with others is a critical part of leadership development. Everyone is given two ears and only one mouth so they might listen twice as much as they speak! Listening effectively is the key to good communication.
(Team Work) Working well with others is another highly important skill for leaders. Getting more accomplished as a team in less time, rather than simply doing it alone.
“Give and Take”
(Negotiation/Compromise) Through the process of working in teams, leaders learn the art of give and take. Compromising in certain areas to ensure that the task is completed, and with all parties pleased with the outcome.
“Step by Step”
(Planning) A large task can be overwhelming. However, Breaking down a task into smaller, bite-sized pieces will build more self confidence and provide a clearer vision for success.
“See and Dream”
(Vision/Goal Setting) A leader who can see their outcome clearly is more likely to achieve success.
(Persistence/Determination/Commitment) Every failure should be viewed as one more step towards success.
