A leader in a team of department is very important because he is the one that leads the team, assigns them work, motivates them and examines their work. He sets goals, makes strategies to achieve those goals, sets a deadline and sees if the work is being done on time.
A leader is responsible for his team and the success of his team depends on good leadership. There are many ways you can develop your leadership skills so that your workers respond to you, get inspired by and perform better, thereby improving the overall performance of the office. Here are a few tips which can lead to more effective leadership:
1. Appreciate workers
All employees want to be appreciated for their work besides getting a salary every month. When you recognize your workers and appreciate them, they feel valued and want to perform better.
2. Set an example
When you work well, your team also follows you but if you are not dedicated, the team falters.
3. Take responsibility
As a leader you are representing your team so take responsibility if there is something wrong instead of blaming them every time.
4. Be fair
It is very important that you do not have any favorites, or rather do not use your emotions to favor one member than all the others inspite of their good performance.
5. Set goals
You must be realistic about your goals and not expect them to do something impossible but also motivate them to push themselves.
6. Show trust
Let your employees do things themselves so that they know you trust them and that also improves their confidence.
7. Assign correct responsibilities
Recognize the talents of your team member and give them the work according to their abilities so that they can perform better and get an interest in their work.
8. Don’t be emotional
You should not be too angry and must keep your temper in check so that you do not say or do anything that can demotivate your team and make them leave their job.
It is important to communicate with your staff so that they also get a chance to express themselves and so that you can discuss the various issues one may have regarding the work
10. Be discreet
Do not make anything public when you are dealing with your employees but use your discretion so that they can also trust you.c
