Lifestyle: How to be a good leader: 5 keys to succeed

Many people want to take the lead in everything and believe they know how to be a leader, but they do not really have the attention or respect of their peers.

30 tips to be a good leader

1. Do a self-assessment

It is the first thing you must take into account to know how to be a good leader, because you can know your strengths and weaknesses. It is advisable to write on a sheet , your skills, the characteristics of your temperament, the way you speak, if you are very confident or if you lack confidence, if people often understand what you want to say, among others.

This way you will be able to know the things that might need improvement and those that do not.

2. Listen carefully

It is not the same to hear as to listen . When we hear we know that the other person is talking, but we only pay attention to prepare an answer. On the other hand, when we listen, we are interested in understanding what that person wants to say to us.

3. Give the example

It is one of the most important keys on how to be a leader, in the first place, you will earn the respect of your team. On the other hand, you will show your colleagues how you want them to behave.

If you would like the people on your team to be more productive or more punctual, start by increasing your productivity and try to be the first to arrive at the office, so you will feel that you have a higher standard to meet.

4. Enjoy what you do

It's not about being in love with your work , if you have that luck. Excellent! But if not, think about the benefits you have and concentrate on them to get the most out of them. By enjoying your work you will always look for ways to move forward and  get solutions, no matter what problems you face.

Other people will realize your passion and you will be a perfect guide to follow.

5. Transmit clear ideas

This is a key issue that you should study in your self-assessment because it is practically the basis to learn how to be a good leader. One technique that great speakers use is to repeat at least three times what you want to say and ask people to tell you what they understood.

Be careful not to sound too arrogant, kindness is the flag of a good leader.
