How To Become An Effective Leader

Copyright (c) 2009 Alan Gillies

All of us often come across the common definition of leadership, which seems to show the meaning as the manoeuvre of a leader dictating the behaviour others, so as to achieve particular objectives.

In the first place, you might wonder «what is the use of such a term in daily life»? However, moving logically we find that most people are in great need of real guidance. So, leadership is not limited to just major companies; rather it is a pervasive activity which influences all aspects of our lives. Whether you are holding a managerial position or working as an employee in a company — you’re looking to grow, and to do this, all you need to find in yourself is the decisive leadership ability to set yourself apart from the competition.

We all need to have some leadership skills to utilise our abilities to the fullest. These skills will help us to lead and manage our business resources — and our human resources. But the real stumbling block is «what skills would you need to acquire in order to become an exceptional leader», so you can effectively manage your own small business enterprise? A brief description here of several of these relevant leadership skills will help you to understand:

1. Good Communication Skills — An individual with good communication skills usually listens to the opinions of others, and is often also able to quickly convey their thoughts, thereby reaching effective decisions faster.

2. Good Motivation Skills — It is of the utmost importance for a leader to have the ability and strength to motivate people to accomplish objectives. A real leader utilises the most efficient approach for motivating others — leading by setting an excellent example.

3. Adaptability — Adaptability is the essential element to succeeding in our ever-changing business world. When you plan your operations always allow for flexibility, so that you can easily adapt to any unpredictable situation that may arise.

4. Know Your People — Once you are able to give your personal touch to your work relationships you will see amazing benefits from these efforts. Personal lives have a great impact on the professional lives of people. When your colleges, employees and customers realise that you care about them, they will connect with you on a personal level.

5. Work Delegation — You can’t do everything on your own. Delegating work to your subordinates is only a part of your delegation requirement. You also need to give personal responsibility of the work to your employees individually, and then keep track of their progress regularly.

6. Decision Making — Decision making is an important aspect of every business. You need to be able to make fast, good and sound decisions in all sorts of situations that may — on occasion, be very difficult. The decisions you chose will directly effect your leadership status, so when additional choices aren’t available to you — go with your intuition.

7. Passion — A leader should have a passion to perform. Being passionate about your work will give you the strength to search out almost impossible answers — be it invention, discovery, or innovation. In the right circumstances, this quality alone could ensure your success.

So, all you need is to achieve personally is a blend of these skills to effectively and efficiently manage your small business enterprises.
