What Makes An Effective Leader?
Thursday, October 23rd, 2008
Leadership performance is driven by a number of factors including the leader’s ability to influence and get buy in and commitment from others in the team or organisation.
The ability to influence other people at a leadership level is driven by several factors including the leader’s proven technical or industry capability and effective leadership skills.
These leadership skills include some of the core emotional intelligence skills such as:
- self awareness (knowing yourself)
- self management (the ability to manage yourself)
- managing relationships with others
- having empathy and the ability to see the big picture, not just your own perspective.
