Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it. – Dwight D. Eisenhower

As a leader, you are likely to need some key skills. You may not have all of these skills right now, but if you are aware of your own strengths and weaknesses you can take steps to develop the skills you don’t have

Motivation : A successful leader sets a good example. Act as a role model for your team, and don’t be afraid to pitch in and help out when needed. Your team will respond well to your leadership if you are willing to contribute.

If you show respect to your employees, thanking them for their work and complimenting them on their successes, they will be far more likely to respect you in return.

Communication Active Listening : You can establish excellent working relationships just by listening to staff and clients. An active listener focuses on what the speaker is saying, regularly paraphrasing to check that they’ve received the speaker’s intended message.

Body language awareness : Be sure that your words match your body language. People read a lot into gestures and eye contact, and they will be far more responsive if what you say matches your posture, expressions and other movements.

Learning : Be sure that your words match your body language. People read a lot into gestures and eye contact, and they will be far more responsive if what you say matches your posture, expressions and other movements.

Analytical skills : Decision makers need to understand and analyze information presented to them before making any key decisions. If a problem arises, you need to be able to analyse business processes to find out what is going wrong, then try to figure out how to fix it. Your recommendations to management could have an effect on the future prospects of the business.

Remember that changing a process or fixing a problem could affect another area of the business, now or further down the line.

Adaptability : You must be ready to adapt to changing circumstances. A successful leader needs to continually anticipate, evaluate and remain open-minded and flexible. Encourage innovative ideas, and take advantage of changing technology, such as social media.

Organizational skills : Be consistent and systematic in how you go about organizing projects by Setting expectations delegating tasks fixing deadlines evaluating alternatives.

What Is Leadership?

The word “leadership” can bring to mind a variety of images

  •  A political leader, pursuing a passionate, personal cause
  •  An explorer, cutting a path through the jungle for the rest of his group to follow
  •  An executive, developing his/ her company’s strategy to beat the competition

Leaders help themselves and others to do the right things. They set direction, build an inspiring vision, and create something new. Leadership is about mapping out where you need to go to “win” as a team or an organization; and it is dynamic, exciting, and inspiring.

Yet, while leaders set the direction, they must also use management skills to guide their people to the right destination, in a smooth and efficient way.

In Our Course, we focus on the process of leadership. In particular, we discuss the “Transformational Leadership” model. We highlight visionary thinking and bringing about change, instead of management processes that are designed to maintain and steadily improve current performance.

Why Leadership is Absolute Necessity?

Leadership means different things to different people around the world, and different things in different situations. For example, it could relate to community leadership, religious leadership, political leadership, and leadership of campaigning groups.

We focus on the Western model of individual leadership, and discusses leadership in the workplace rather than in other areas.

According to the idea of transformational leadership, an effective leader is a person who does the following:

  •  Creates an inspiring vision of the future
  •  Motivates and inspires people to engage with that vision
  •  Manages delivery of the vision
  •  Coaches and builds a team, so that it is more effective at achieving the vision

Leadership brings together the skills needed to do these things. We prefer to look at each element in more detail at later stage in Our Advance Course.

Motivating and Inspiring People

_A compelling vision provides the foundation for leadership. But it’s leaders’ ability to motivate and inspire people that helps them deliver that vision.

For example, when you start a new project, you will probably have lots of enthusiasm for it, so it’s often easy to win support for it at the beginning. However, it can be difficult to find ways to keep your vision inspiring after the initial enthusiasm fades, especially if the team or organization needs to make significant changes in the way that it does things. Leaders recognize this, and they work hard throughout the project to connect their vision with people’s individual needs, goals and aspirations.

One of the key ways they do this is through Expectancy Theory. Effective leaders link together different expectations.

Creating an Inspiring Vision of the Future

In business, a vision is a realistic, convincing and attractive depiction of where you want to be in the future. Vision provides direction, sets priorities, and provides a marker, so that you can tell that you’ve achieved what you wanted to achieve

To create a vision, leaders focus on an organization’s strengths by using tools such as,

  •  PEST Analysis
  •  USP Analysis
  •  Core Competence Analysis
  •  SWOT Analysis

It helps to analyze their current situation. They think about how their industry is likely to evolve, and how their competitors are likely to behave. They look at how they can innovate successfully , and shape their businesses and their strategies to succeed in future marketplaces. And they test their visions with appropriate market research, and by assessing key risks using techniques such as Scenario Analysis.

Therefore, leadership is proactive – problem solving, looking ahead, and not being satisfied with things as they are

Once they have developed their visions, leaders must make them compelling and convincing. A compelling vision is one that people can see, feel, understand, and embrace. Effective leaders provide a rich picture of what the future will look like when their visions have been realized. They tell inspiring stories, and explain their visions in ways that everyone can relate too.

Here, leadership combines the analytical side of vision creation with the passion of shared values, creating something that’s really meaningful to the people being led.
