Be steady and dependable

As a leader, being reliable and responsible is important for your team. You stand a good chance in gaining the trust of your team if you show that you exercise caution, take calculated risks, and will hold to the organizational principles.

MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Charisma is useful for engaging and inspiring others.
However, unchecked charisma can lead to a reputation of self-absorption and self-promotion

The team may become concerned that you are more focused on your own concerns and ideas than on what's best for the group or organization.

There is a degree of responsibility (and professionalism) that is expected from those in charge.
Trying to be the fun boss will harm your reputation eventually. It is good to keep some space between you and your team.

Too much focus on data and analyses can detract from the broader context or the impact of your decisions. Relying only on data may indicate the best course of action for the bottom line, but it may not be the best decision for the team or relevant stakeholders.

Adjusting to a new leadership role can take some time. After a while, we will become more comfortable, and we may stop paying attention to our reputations.

Keep up your guard, stay vigilant and seek regular feedback.

Deepstash helps you become inspired, wiser and productive, through bite-sized ideas from the best articles, books and videos out there.

RELATED IDEAS

The moral framing of leadership does not consider the real complexities and difficulties that leaders face.

Sometimes, being pragmatic necessitates doing seemingly bad things to achieve good results. This means that leaders may have to act in strategic misrepresentation, contrary to their own feelings.

IDEAS

Charismatic leaders can also be narcissists in some cases, having self-serving and grandiose intentions, taking advantage of their followers and abusing their power.

Even though they are generally perceived as arrogant, their bold vision and fearless attitude make them radiate an image of effective leaders, making them a high-risk, high-reward proposition.

The biggest risk is not taking any risk. In a world that is changing really quickly, the only strategy that is guaranteed to fail is not taking risks.
