Good leadership can positively affect people, teams and organizations just as poor leadership can have a negative, sometimes even devastating effect. Everyone deserves to work with a strong leader. Although the world and our lives are filled with many struggles and challenges, we cannot control—as leaders, we have the power to create workplaces where people feel valued and where they believe they can contribute and make a difference.
It took time and a lot of effort to become the professional you are today. You likely invested in some kind of education. Maybe a two-year certificate, a four-year degree, maybe more. You listened to lectures, wrote paper and exams. The point is you learned a lot before taking on the role you have today.
Then you worked hard and did a great job, so you were rewarded with a management position. Now you have people reporting to you and you’re ultimately responsible for them and their outcomes. With that position comes new challenges you may not have learned to manage in school. You likely didn’t take a course on emotional intelligence or how to build trusting relationships. There probably wasn’t a class called Coaching & Inspiring your Employees 101.
That leaves you trying to do your best and navigating leadership without a compass. Some days it may be going well, and you feel like you’re taking this new role in stride. Other days, you wonder if you have what it takes to lead others.
The skills you invested in developing to become a [insert your profession here] are not the same skills you need to be an effective leader. The good news is leadership skills can be learned.
