“Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others,” said Jack Welch, an American business executive, chemical engineer, and writer. He was Chairman and CEO of General Electric between 1981 and 2001.
Leadership is not owned or forced, you have to work hard, gain experience and develop new skills to polish your qualities. The leader’s role is to encourage, influence, and motivate their people to work effectively and efficiently to achieve the common goal. Sam Mizrahi has long studied leadership and is the president and founder of Mizrahi Developments, a Toronto-based real estate development company that specializes in catering to the luxury market. The One is Sam Mizrahi’s largest and arguably most public project to date. One Bloor West, the site of The One, is the former location of Stollery, the venerable men’s clothing store that occupied the space for 114 years.
Here are five strategies to develop a Healthy Leadership Spirit.
Define and communicate vision:
A good leader has the capability to provide a great vision for their and their company’s future. With their innovative and creative mindset, they can find the direction and path to how to achieve their vision. When a leader provides a vision for the company then it will help the employees and the company to follow that path to achieve the same goal. But as a leader, it is essential for you to provide transparent and clear information about what your vision looks like to all your team members and employees. This will help the employees in better understanding of the company’s goal and they will work hard to provide positive feedback and hard work to achieve the same goal.
Every employee wants to feel valued and appreciated by their company for their hard work. When your employees provide hard and effective work for the company, it is your job to recognize their work and encourage them to continue their effective work for the betterment of the company. When your team works overtime for the company’s success then you should motivate them with a salary bonus or any other award system, so that the employees feel valued and respected in the organization.
Speak from the heart:
When you are passionate about your goal and will do everything possible to achieve that goal, this is one of the traits of a great leader. There are many people who are born with leadership qualities and there are others who work hard to become good leaders. Try to engage with your employees as much as you can, share your ideas with them, and motivate them to be passionate about their goals. Daily interaction can help your employees to grow and develop in better ways and also it will have a positive impact on your work.
Empower and delegate:
The best way to engage your employees is to empower them by delegating greater responsibilities. A good leader is very well aware of their employee’s strengths and weaknesses so they can use their strengths and delegate them better responsibilities. Every employee will be happy if they are entrusted with a position of responsibility. This will help you get better company growth and profit.
Leadership does not have any ending in their destination. If you are passionate about being a good leader, you should value learning. A great leader is always keen to learn and value education, they are completely aware of new technologies in the market, current market flow and they are already planning for the future.
