4 Traits Of The Best Leaders
If you just delegate and dictate, your leadership style is out of date. These are the leadership skills of the future.
Workplace culture is constantly evolving to meet the needs of new generations of workers as well as new economic demands. In today’s fast-paced, competitive, and mobile world, leaders have more opportunities and greater necessity than ever to engage their workforce.
Here are four characteristics of today’s great leaders:
1. THEY DON’T SHOW OFF
Good leaders don’t plaster their credentials all over their walls in order to brag or intimidate their staff. Today’s great leaders don’t care about credentials, but about great ideas, wherever those ideas come from.
2. THEY AREN’T DICTATORS
While the leaders of the past used to be very directive, telling their employees the exact steps to take and giving them a paycheck at the end of the week for following their orders, today’s great leaders have loosened the parameters.
3. THEY ENCOURAGE INPUT
Great leaders accept ideas from anyone, regardless of rank. Leaders who take the approach of “you never know where a great idea will come from” are more likely to have a motivated and inspired workforce.
4. THEY’RE WILLING TO SHOW VULNERABILITY
Today’s great leaders aren’t know-it-alls. While in the past, words like weakness and vulnerability were considered taboo, today’s leaders have the ability to say, “I don’t know.”
