RIGHT way in Leadership!
What does Leadership mean?
How hard can it really be to lead people? You just tell them what to do right?
Leadership within an organization is the act of inspiring and motivating people to achieve organizational goals.

What is it?
What's it all about?
To lead means to go in advance as a guide to others, providing direction and vision. Managers plan, organize, coordinate, and provide purpose as they direct employees toward a specific goal.
Organizes people and resources toward the effective and efficient pursuit of pre-determined objectives.
Catalyzes commitment to and
vigorous pursuit of a clear and
compelling vision, stimulating
Builds enduring greatness
through a paradoxical blend
of personal humility and
The autocratic leader is completely in
control. They closely supervise and
direct everything. They won't let
others help. This is appropriate
for some situations but not
used often now days.
The democratic style is a popular style in the workplace because the subordinates share in authority, decisions, and plans. Morale is better because the leadership
is more flexible, attitudes are
more positive and employees
have a voice in plans.
The Laissez-Faire style leader lets every one
do as they choose. The leader may monitor employee's tasks and respond to requests
for assistance. This is more appropriate
for situations where employees are
well skilled and don't need
Integrity means you have a commitment to a set of values. Integrity is the most important factor in leadership, and is the cornerstone of good leadership. Leaders with integrity earn trust from others because they
can always be relied on
to "do the right thing."
Leaders take responsibility
for their actions and decisions.
Those with responsibility lead to
trust. A responsible leader makes
sure team members have
everything they need to
do their jobs.
An effective leader is eager to learn
and continues to learn new things.
They are also willing to learn
from others and value
Visionary leaders look and see what is possible. They know how to set goals and remain focused on those goals. The Bible says "Without vision, the people perish." The same is so with business; if a leader doesn't have a vision for the future, the business can't go anywhere.
Defining who you are is essential to guiding others effectively. Self-understanding means knowing your values and goals as well as being aware of your attitudes, shortcomings, and strengths. Self-knowledge helps leaders understand others and
keeps them focused.
Self-management is very important
in leadership positions as well as administrative positions. Leaders
should be able to set goals,
measure progress, exercise
stress, and solve
Effective leaders see themselves as competent and capable of doing the job before them. Good leaders gain confidence in their successes (even the small ones). They understand their weaknesses and won't
overlook them. They use their strengths to achieve
Planning is the process of
thinking about the activities
required to accomplish
Communicating your expectations and goals in the beginning clearly is important. If you fail to communicate, it leaves your employees / co-members in the blank. Also, not stating clearly can make the situation worse, if not dangerous.
Set a Good
Effective leaders approach the task of directing other people by holding themselves accountable and avoiding double standards.
Invest in People:
Involving employees in decision-making
processes as much as possible, demonstrates
investment in people and relationships.
When employees feel they are trusted and
valued, they are empowered and are
encouraged to do an excellent job.
A leader who delegates is able to get more accomplished. Delegating can be difficult because you have to relinquish control.
Don't be afraid to ask questions! Listen carefully to instructions. Whenever possible, pose questions at a time that is convenient for the other person, and give the person as much time as possible to respond.
This is the first part of planning you should take when asked to lead. What is the end
in mind? Start with that! Determine the
goals and write down your
purpose of your group.
Taking ownership is the same as saying you are "taking responsibility." Leadership is taking ownership and responsibility
for your job. If you don't do it, it
won't get done.
Good leaders get to know the people they work for. They get to know their talents, strengths, and weaknesses. They invest time in their employees and co-workers, talk to
them, and listen to them. They
take a genuine interest
Good leaders try to find out what motivates the people they are leading and encourage them to strive to go farther. A leader gives praise to their employees when they need it.
There's two kinds of motivation: 1. Extrinsic - which
would be like a salary increase or promotion.
2. Intrinsic - which would be the desire for
personal recognition or a feeling of
satisfaction from a job well done.
Effective leaders know how to manage conflicts that
arise. They know how to find facts, they know their
employees, they will find the truth if possible. It's
not always easy to handle conflict, find facts,
and put personal feelings aside. A good
leader will see events ahead of time
that cause conflict and can stop it
before it happens.
