What Makes An Effective Leader?
1. TAKE OWNERSHIP
On a global stage New Zealand’s prime minster Jacinda Ardern has been praised for her swift and decisive response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which sees her country now considered virus free.
Elsewhere, leaders like US president Donald Trump and UK prime minister Boris Johnson have drawn criticism for failing to act quickly enough to prevent the spread of the disease.
We can learn from leaders like Jacinda to move swiftly, take ownership and be accountable whilst balancing this with giving empathy, respect and demonstrating strength of leadership.
This will give you the power to take hold of the situation at hand.
No one can make your dreams a reality but you.
“There are those who can and DO!
There are those who can and DON’T!!
There are also those who can and WON’T!!!
Which are you?”
– Daizy Gedeon
Instil this quality in your team too. If they take responsibility with your vision in mind how you exceed your business aims will be magnified tenfold. Research shows that your business could achieve 21% more profit (source: Forbes) the more you engage with your team and bring them on your journey.
2. BEING TRANSPARENT WILL NURTURE TRUST
Honesty and integrity are the cornerstones for any relationships, including as a leader. Your team will charge with you if they know where they stand, what they’re fighting for and how to execute your vision.
Externally your customers will see whether they can trust you almost immediately.
Our instincts are rarely wrong.
