A leader doesn’t necessarily have to be a ‘manager’. However, it is difficult to see how a manager could be truly effective without having at least some leadership development training skills. Forbes highlight difference in Management Vs Leadership in their article. Leadership in business works towards attaining the long term objectives of an organisation while communicating values to the people of the organisation. This inspires and empowers them to support and work towards the objective. Leadership involves recognising and developing the skills of the workforce and build a positive work culture where both the needs of the company and of the employees are a priority.. Skills leaders spend time developing are:
- Courage: “A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions and the compassion to listen to the needs of others.”
- Passion “Good business leaders create a vision, articulate the vision and relentlessly drive it to completion.” Jack Welsh, former CEO of General Electric.
- Problem Solving Skills: The ability to analyse and apply solutions to problems is a central characteristic of leaders.
- Communication Skills: A large part of good communication skills is the ability to listen and take feedback. The ability to give credit to others is integral to good communication skills.
- Decision making and the ability to take decisive action especially where there is an inertia or unwillingness to move forward.
