How to Build Strong and
Effective Leadership Skills
good leadership style is often difficult to define as it is more
qualitative than quantitative. Some say that a good leader gets the job
done, while others argue that a good leader simply inspires and motivates
his team. In other words, a good leader gets the work done by inspiring
others and he does so, because not only does he know the best method of
doing the job, but he helps the doer to look at the bigger canvas. He
shows him the path of progress, of independence and the route to success.
To put it simply a good leader knows how to get the best out of his team.
He has a vision which he constantly shares with his people.
how does a person get to develop leadership skills? Is it an innate
quality or can a person be trained to develop such skills? The right way
to approach such issues would be to understand a bit of history and
scrutinize leadership styles and traits of people who have made a mark in
this world. We have seen through the biographies of several world leaders
that many of them were initially shy and reticent by nature but firm in
their decisions and assertive in the implementation of such decisions.
Each leader has his own way of leading people ultimately persuading them
to think the way he does. Incidentally, leadership is not restricted to
authority, designation or power of the chair.
Leadership traits can be evident even in the smallest fry in the
department – who is willing to take on responsibility, who is committed
and who has tremendous tenacity to see a job through till its completion.
Be that as it may, analyzing the traits and styles of many historical as
well as contemporary leaders one can surmise that while some leadership
qualities can be innate, these skills need to be honed and fine-tuned
further. This does not exclude people who were born without any visible
leadership skills. Even such people can be a leader provided he has a
strong determination and develops himself through a continuous process of
self analysis, training and personal experience.
does our institute train people to become future leaders and build the
most efficient team in an organization? Our training module is based on
certain intrinsic beliefs about leadership traits which we train people to
learn and adopt. The keystone of modern leadership style involves building
a strong team within the organization – where individual ambition is given
an opportunity to dovetail with corporate mission and vision. Team
building is an important job of a successful leader where each and every
member shares the same magnificent vision which the leader has. A thorough
knowledge of individual strengths and weaknesses is another important
skill of a leader which we help to develop. The way we look at it is that
when a leader knows the core competence of his team, he can use the
potential of his workforce to the fullest. Motivational and inspirational
qualities are important for the leader to inject his team with renewed
enthusiasm even in the face of failures or obstacles.
leadership and team building training takes an integrated approach where
importance is given to areas including: recruiting and retaining the right
people in the organization; rewarding as well as retribution skills; job
allocation and rotation skills; harnessing talent to move in the right
direction which is in line with organizational goals; development of core
competence in every individual working in his team. If leadership is all
about how well he manages to delegate responsibilities, we believe that it
also includes his skills to build his successor. The sooner he does this
successfully, the quicker is his personal growth.
