Leadership is an art form

Good leaders can build you up or drag you down. At work, leaders can make the difference between a good job or a lousy job.

That is why leadership is considered an art form. Leadership is not something everyone can do well, and it takes practice to create an atmosphere where people are inspired to do their best work.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

  • Practice "radical transparency". Include your employees in the decisions that directly affect them. Ask them for feedback on proposals or share essential news with them before it becomes public.
  • Study how your team works as a whole. The success of one person influences the success of others.
  • Seek mentorship and ask for guidance.
  • "Manage up". Don't wait for your boss to create a plan for you based on what they think you can do. Instead, position yourself for your next role. Ask yourself how you are innovating your current role.

"I think that's where we get it wrong, is that we think any bit of information is meaning that we are less than as a person or that we are unworthy or unfit or incapable. When really, feedback is just information, and you have the power to decide what you do with it."
