LEADERSHIP TIPS
FOR LEADERS AND ASPIRING LEADERS

If you want to improve the organization, you have to improve yourself and the organization gets pulled up with you
Indra Nooyi

Being An Effective Communicator

Powerful leaders know when to talk and when to listen. They are effective communicators and are able to clearly and succinctly explain to their employees everything from organizational goals to specific tasks. If people dont understand or arent aware of your expectations, they will fall short, so the more specific you can be, the better.

You need to be able to communicate on all levels: one on one, to the department and to the entire staff, as well as via phone, email and social media. Communication is built on a steady flow of verbal and nonverbal exchanges of ideas and information, so work on being approachable and involving people from different level.

Setting Clear Goals and Persisting In Achieving Them

Set clear goals and be determined and purposeful in achieving them. Back it all up with unshakable self-confidence. If you radiate enthusiasm and are truly excited about what youre doing, people will be naturally drawn to you.Remember that writing your goals down is the key to success of both you and your company. But accomplishing those goals takes time. If you give up, so will everyone around you. To be a successful leader, you must be willing to keep going when others are tempted to throw in the towel

Having A Vision For The Future

Exceptional leaders have the ability to look into their companys future and make clear, concrete goals that will benefit their organization. They are confident and optimistic, inspiring enthusiasm in those around them. Being a visionary is about managing change while striking a balance between stability and growth. One must incorporate new approaches without getting distracted from the main goals. Being a visionary means understanding that continuous change is occurring all around you, so what worked in the past may not always work now

Managing Complexity

Leaders must be problem solvers who can make decisions under rapidly shifting circumstances. Learning to lead in a complex environment is a vital skill for any leader. Even before any definitive information is available, effective leaders must assess a situations complexity and choose appropriate courses of action. Leaders should be able to scan the environment in search of subtle trends and indicators of disruptive change, and establish practices that allow the organization to respond swiftly.
