Nine Behaviors of Leadership Developing People
A good leader not only develops his or her people as individuals, but also knows how to get the best out of people when they work on teams.
Good leaders have a strong interest in the personal and professional development of their people. They encourage their staff to push beyond their limitation and give their personal best.
A good leader understands the need for individuals to become team players. By breaking employees into small groups and giving them a simple problem to solve, you can teach them about the issue that arises for teams.
Empowerment involves four dynamics: giving people important work to do; offering visibility and public recognition; encourage autonomy and helping them to establish networking skills.
Multiple Options Thinking
Exceptional leaders don’t stop at the obvious. They know the first answer they get may not always be the best answer, and even the “ right” answer may not be appropriate for a particular situation. There should always be at least four options to any given situation and when this way of thinking becomes habitual, new solutions appear.
Intelligent Risk Taking
Good leaders know how to analyze risks inherent in a particular course of action. They also know when an action is low risk or high and they know how to gain consensus from their staff.
Being Passionate About Work
Personal resources are equally important to the development of an exceptional leader. Good leaders continue to find ways to become better and pass their passionate and positive energy onto their staff.
Having a Strong Clear Vision
Without a clear vision the leader as well as those following are lost. The leaders ability to inspire and project into the future help others feel worthwhile in their own work and have a sense of purpose and direction. Communication is Key.
Stretching One’s Personal Creativity
An exceptional leader is always learning something new and willing to stretch out into other arenas and discover things they didn’t know. They also encourage and allow creative participation from their staff. Your staff will ultimately present ideas you never dreamed of.
