I'm not talking about mere competence, I'm asking what makes a leader great?
As a company grows, broad management structures can become difficult to maintain. Forming teams and designating leaders can simplify reporting, and help encourage effective teamwork. It's easier to hear and be heard when a team is small, but even leading small teams will have its challenges.
What's interesting to think about is how many different ways there are to approach a challenge,
How does a great leader behave, talk, or work?
How can the tools you use at work help people that lead teams to do their job better?
Can you think of a time when a team leader went above and beyond to help their team? Or a time when they took a unique approch to a sticky problem?
Feel free to respond to only one, or all, of the questions posed here. And be sure to think about the less conventional ways a great leader behaves.
Thanks so much for your reply!
I agree with everything you've described. And I think all great leaders tend to have one thing in common, and that's great communication skills!
While some may not be the talkative type, one can also communicate by showing.
