Understand the symbolism of a leadership

This is often neglect in contemporary organizational life. People often join organzations because they enjoy the feeling of being in one and the role of the leader is to invest in the health, development, and growth of that community.

Leaders must also bear the unique responsibility of helping the community feel a sense of unity and collective identity.

Introverts Vs Extroverts

Some questions are fundamental: Fiction or Nonfiction? Cat person or Dog person? And this: Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

Each of these identities has its pros and cons, but no one can say that a particular one is better. Extroverts have long been celebrated and rewarded due to their natural people skills. Introverts are, strangely enough, proven to be better CEOs, though the confident attitude of an extrovert is better suited for the image of a CEO.

Acknowledge the Previous Leader

It is easy to forget all about the past leader. But the past leader actually has a lot to teach you. 

Their shortcomings are things which you can improve on. And the good work they completed is something you will be measured on.

Therefore, take time out to ask your team what they liked and disliked about the past leader. Then, govern your leadership style from the information gathered.
