Follow These Leadership Tips
Here are a few tips for how you can improve your leadership skills:
- Think long-term. Too often, short-term gains, no matter how attractive, are not worth it if they could hinder your prospects for the future.
- Find a mentor. Better yet, find a couple different mentors. Perhaps you work with someone in your business and also someone who is in a business completely different than your business.
- Respond quickly. Reply quickly to e-mails and telephone calls, even if it's just to explain what you are doing regarding the matter at hand and to inform the other party of your expect final response date.
- Keep your team challenged. Always give your team members plenty of opportunities to be challenged and to be creative.
