Consider these tips when upping your leadership game:

  1. Lead by example.

Leaders need to show, not just tell. Set the tone and your employees will follow it.

2. Communicate effectively.

Great leaders make sure they are heard and understood, but they also know the importance of listening.

  1. Be emotionally aware.

Be sensitive to different points of view and different backgrounds. When using your head to do what’s best for your company, don’t forget to have a heart.

  1. Learn from the past.

Those who don’t learn from the past are doomed to repeat it.

  1. Never stop improving.

Great leaders — indeed, great people — are constantly learning and always trying to improve themselves. There’s always something that you can work on or a new skill to master.


And remember; there’s a difference between a leader and a boss. A leader shares the spotlight and is comfortable crediting others.
