We all know the adage that people don’t leave bad companies, they leave toxic or incompetent leaders. So for companies to succeed, building effective leaders needs to be a top priority. The command and control style of leadership that was prevalent in the past is no longer relevant. Today, relationships are the currency of business and leaders need to focus on building and nurturing authentic relationships with their people. The human element of leadership is even more essential during today’s unprecedented times. These 15 traits define the most potent leadership traits for today’s workforce.
1. Understand and help you apply your unique value.
Effective leaders know that you have something special to offer—your unique personal brand— and they help you understand what that is while giving you permission to integrate it into what you do and how you do it.
2. Set the scene and avoid micromanaging.
Effective leaders create a vision and inspire you to see your role in achieving that vision. They don’t spend their time telling you exactly what to do and how to do it.
