How to be a good leader.
« on: April 26, 2012, 08:23:20 AM »
Leadership skills and techniques is not natural. It can be but very few. The skills and techniques of a leader can be learned.

There are some tips that help to be a good leader are given below-

*Care for your team- That means knowing what matters to each member: their health, their partner, their children, their relatives, their interests, their hopes, their fears.

*Stay close to your team- At some point, every day, walk around the office and say "Hi" to everyone who works for you. If you're not in the office that day, call and see how people are. This gives you a chance to  encourage and gives them an opportunity to raise issues or make suggestions.

*Meet your team Regularly - daily, weekly or monthly, depending on your place and type of work - have meetings of all the members of the team. Keep these meetings short, focused and action-orientated. Make sure every member of the team contributes in some way and acknowledge that.

*Train your team- Every team member should have at least two days training a year. Newer and more senior colleagues should have more. If they don't ask to go on training sessions, suggest some suitable courses.

*Grow your team- Through varied experience and regular training, you should be developing each team member to be more and more confident and more skilled.

*Inspire your team- Consider making available a motivational quote or story every week or month.

*Celebrate with your team- This might be a personal event, such as a member's birthday or anniversary, or a professional occasion, such as completing a project or winning of a contract.

*Socialize with your team- Have lunch or an after-work drink with them, especially when a member has a birthday or there's another reason to celebrate.

*Set objectives for each team member- As far as possible, these objective such be SMART - Specific Measurable Achievable Resourced Timed.

*Review the performance of each team member- At least once a year - at least quarterly for the first year of a new team member - have a review session where you assess performance, give feed-back and agree future objectives and training.

*Thank constantly- The words "Thank you" take seconds to say, but mean so much.

*Praise constantly- The words "Well done" take seconds to say, but will be long remembered and appreciated.

*Eliminate- Too often we do things because they've always been done. Life changes. Consider whether you could stop doing certain things altogether.

*Communicate constantly- Don't assume that people know what you're doing, still less what you are planning or thinking. Tell them, using all the communication tools to hand: team briefings, electronic newsletters, organizational newspapers.

*Delegate - You don't have to do everything. Develop your team members by training them to do more and trusting them to take over some of the things you've been doing.

*Empower - A really effective leader sets clear objectives for his team members, but leaves detailed implementation of these objectives to the discretion and judgement of individual members of the team.

*Facilitate- A confident leader does not try to micro-manage his team, but makes it clear that, if team members need advice or assistance, he is always there to facilitate and support.

*Be on time- Always start meetings on time and finish them on time. Natural breaks keep people fresh. Short meetings concentrate the mind.

*Be seen- Don't just talk the talk, but walk the walk. So visit each unit or department for which you are responsible on a regular basis. Don't do this unannounced - you are not out to undermine other leaders or catch out staff. So arrange with the unit leader or departmental head when you'll visit and ask him or her to walk round with you.

*Make time- Managers are often very busy and this can deter people from approaching you, so make time for people and be approachable. People will appreciate you taking five minutes out of your busy schedule, especially if you listen to what they say.

Really listen- Many of us - especially those who think they are important - don't really listen, but instead think about what they're going to say next. Give the person speaking to you your full attention and really take on board what they are saying.

*Accept honest criticism- Criticism is hard to take, particularly from a relative, a friend, an acquaintance or a stranger - but it's a powerful tool of learning. Above all, assess criticism on merit, without regard to its originator.

*Think strategically- The doers cut a path through the jungle; the managers are behind them sharpening the machetes; the leaders find time to think, climb the nearest tree, and shout "Wrong jungle!" Find time to climb the trees.

*Have a mentor- someone doing similar work in the same or a similar organization with whom you can regularly and frankly discuss your progress and your problems as a leader.

*Have a role model- someone who can inspire you to be a truly great leader.

*Discuss your succession- You won't be there forever and you may not be in control of the timing and circumstances of your departure. So start now to mentor and train at least one colleague who could take over from you.

Those tips will help us to be a good leader in all steps of our life.

The topic is really the most criticized one in todays' world. A leader must have the sense to consume time with efficient manner & lead the others in an wholesome way.
