Leadership

Leadership is the act of guiding, influencing and inspiring others to work collaboratively towards a shared goal. Unlike management, which focuses more on organizing and directing resources, leadership involves strategies and techniques that evoke trust, commitment and collaboration among team members.

A leader is the one in the charge, the person who convinces other people to follow. A great leader inspires confidence in other people and moves them to action.

In leadership, a great leader does the following:

  • Provide safety: They create an environment where team members feel safe to voice their opinions, share concerns, and take risks without fear of retribution. This psychological safety is fundamental for fostering creativity and innovation.
  • Support their people: Beyond just assigning tasks, effective leaders offer guidance, training and resources. They are available for questions, provide timely feedback, and ensure that team members have what they need to excel in their roles.
  • Clear roadblocks: Great leaders proactively identify and remove obstacles that hinder their team’s progress. Whether it’s bureaucracy, resource constraints or interpersonal conflicts, they pave the way for smoother operations and workflow.
  • Celebrate success: Outstanding leaders give their employees the feeling of being seen and celebrated. This isn’t just about major milestones, but also the small victories along the way.
  • Know what makes you tick: Adept leaders invest time to genuinely connect with their team, tuning into each member’s unique passions, strengths, hurdles and dreams. They see the person behind the job title, fostering a deeper connection and trust.

Finally, a good leader exercising leadership,  recognises that motivation isn’t one-size-fits-all, good leaders tailor their approach. By understanding what drives an individual they can fine-tune roles and rewards to keep the team flourishing.
