There is a common misconception that years of technical, on the job experience in a role automatically makes someone leadership potential. I remember the first leadership role I was promoted into given my level of technical experienced and I was terrible at it! I could do my job well but had no clue how to lead people…needless to say it did not last long before I was exhausted, burnt out and over it.
What I have learned since, is that leadership is more about influence than it is about anything else. It is about creating the environment for those in our team to thrive, to innovate and to succeed. Knowing how to authentically and effectively inspire others to work at their best starts by understanding ourselves. Whether we realise it or not, we project on to others and so if a team is under performing, then it is feedback to that leader to consider where they might need to grow.
Now some may not like this message – that great leadership starts with self and if that’s you, then you probably won’t be reading too much further.
If on the other had you are a leader who is eager to learn how to become the best version of yourself in order to create a high performing team or business, then read on!
