There are several people that serve as leaders in your community.
You can ask the people of the community to help you learn how to achieve leadership qualities if you are a leader yourself and you serve in the community such as a government official or a school board member.
People throughout your community will be glad to offer up their opinion how you could become a better leader and you yourself can learn how to unleash the leader instinct within you.
Ideas To Help A Leader
There a couple of things that a person out of the community can help a leader as you, the following are few ideas.
- A member of the community can let you know if the policies that you enforce a leader actually work. The leaders can help you come up with innovative ideas on making the policy work efficiently. In other words, a true leader listens while hearing, as well as offering insights of his/her own.
- A member of the community can let you know what people think about you and the work that you do within the community. Leaders can help you see that what you do in society reflects on others either negatively or positively.
- A member of the community can tell you were the problems areas are and how you can work to improve them by offering effective criticisms.
- A member of the community can give you advice on what they think you can do to be a better leader. The leaders will avoid judging, criticizing, accusing, etc.
- A member of the community can give you advice on what they think you can do to enforce the policies within the community.
It is up to you as a leader to take the advice that you get and build on the information. You want to avoid leading people to think that you are just in it for the publicity or profit; you want the observers and listeners to know that you are building to leadership because you want to be the one that leads the community to a better place.
