How Do You Envision Yourself as a Leader?
Whether you are a new leader (congrats!) or a seasoned leader, focusing on your development creates a ripple effect in the organization. The more skilled you become, the more confident your team assumes independent work.
Your leadership style sets you apart from anyone else. Let’s be honest – sometimes what you do or how you do it may not land well. Until now, your distinct style roots itself from your education and experiences.
A key difference between a so-so leader and a great leader is being a life-long learner. Great leaders set time aside to reflect. They stretch into the uncomfortable zones – making personal changes that directly impact what holds them and their teams back from greatness.
When Do You Know Leadership Development Might Help?
Some of the obvious signs leaders experience and prompts them to seek out leadership development include:
- Micro-managing direct reports or teams
- Time management (when to say “no”)
- Personal confidence (overpowering discussions or not speaking up)
- Lack of trust in others
- Poor communication of ideas or feelings
- Insensitivity to the needs of others
- Belief your team is dysfunctional
Each of these signs erodes personal and team performance.
WHY LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT?
Every leader has blind spots. Learning how to leverage your strengths and blind spots is a sign of a great leader. Great leaders are self-aware. They are not afraid to work on their leadership style because it is critical to connecting with others authentically. When you connect, you get better results.
Are you ready to become the leader you aspire to be?
