10 ways to step up your leadership today
Strong leadership is a lifelong pursuit that requires continuous evaluation and improvement. Every leader has his own style, and every company needs a personalized approach.
That said, there are 10 things any entrepreneur in any organization can do to deliver results:
1. Don’t try to get stuff done.
That’s not your job. As CEO, your job is to get others to execute for you. A leader is the only one who can drive the big strategy, so being caught in the weeds will only undermine the ability for everyone else to win.
2. Forget about democracy.
You want to be a supportive, open-minded autocrat. If you make soft suggestions and ask for input, you create a lack of confidence among your subordinates. Be assertive; lead by unwavering decisiveness.
