What is a good leader? How does a good leader create leaders in others? Those are great questions to ponder.
What is a good leader to me?
A good leader listens even when they don’t agree and has the ability to explain their outlook and why. Has a talented way to give constructive feedback without deflating the employee. Hold others accountable for their actions and hold themselves accountable, as well.
The ability to communicate the strategic plan and goals for the future of the team. Motivate and encourage team members to obtain these goals with leadership and team building skills.
A good leader is trustworthy, honest, ethical, loyal, dedicated and dependable. They coach, mentor and respect their employees and want them to succeed within their organization. They are upfront about difficult uncomfortable situations and the subordinates are not guessing or assuming what they really meant. These are a few traits I believe makes a good leader.
How does a good leader create leaders in others?
A good leader meets with their employees one on one to discuss personal development. The supervisor and staff member create an action plan with goals and training courses. Through coaching, mentoring, a career development plan and leading with a proven successful manner, the employee will be on a career path of purpose. It is up to the individual to pursue their dreams and aspirations to be a good leader. Don’t underestimate the importance of having a good coach, leader or person in your life to assist you along the way. Having a good leader to follow is priceless. Just think, what possibilities could be in the workplace if everyone was a good leader. ~ Patti
