How to Be a Better Leader for Your Business

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, February 11, 2020

A leader is made, not born, which is why if you feel like your leadership abilities are lacking it is not an innate fault with who you are. Just as you learned to walk, you can learn to lead, and there are many ways to become not just someone in charge, but a transformational leader that inspires hard work and loyalty in their employees.

Aim to Become a Transformational Leader

A transformational leader is the ideal. It is when you are enthusiastic and passionate, and when your employees feel like you are genuine. You don’t just want to reach a goal at any cost, you want to improve everyone along the way until they reach their fullest potential.

How to Become a Transformational Leader

To become a transformational leader, you will want to:

  • Build on the skills you have.
  •  Remember key contemporary theory.

Only you can build a thriving workplace culture, but with the right tools and know-how, you can guide your efforts more effectively.

Learn from the Best

When it comes to learning leadership skills, there is no better place than with a Masters in Leadership online course. These courses are designed to help you build on your existing strengths and ground your leadership abilities with contemporary theory from some of the brightest minds in the field.

Audit Your Workplace

It’s hard to be a great leader when you have other factors working against you. That is why you should go through and audit the workplace and the working culture. Don’t do this on your own. Instead:

  1. Have everyone go through and write a list of things they don’t like and suggestions for improvement.
  2. Sort through them like a vote. Those that refer to the same problems most will be prioritized as it seems to be a consensus issue.

Make Improvements that Matter

Prioritize what needs to be fixed most. What your employees complain about the most, after all, is obviously the problem that needs addressing first. Use their suggestions as a launching point, but don’t be afraid to seek outside counsel on how to address the issue best.

Find and Encourage Individual Strengths

If you want everyone on your team to thrive you need to help them reach their greatest potential. You can do this by:

  1. Having one-on-one conversations that help you better understand their interests and strengths can make task delegation more interesting.
  2. Keep an eye out for workshops or other learning opportunities so that they can better their individual talents.

Recognize and Reward Efforts

Create a straightforward recognition and rewards program, starting first with just a “thank you, this is great” when an employee does good work.

You should also aim to make note of all exemplary efforts for each employee and review these documents once a month so that you can provide your employees with rewards based on their efforts. These rewards don’t have to be big, either. Treat them to a lunch or take your whole team out for an after-work event if they have all done well.
