9 Tips to be a Better Leader – Leadership and Management Skills and Qualities

August 15, 2019

hey guys practically psychology here and today i’m going to be teaching you some tips on how to be a great leader so one of the biggest misconceptions about leadership is that it is something that is innate many people think that leaders are born this way and they don’t have to spend time and effort to develop their leadership capabilities this cannot be any further from the truth by implementing the 90 words of leadership into your life you’ll be able to develop your potential as a leader earn more money in your career and earn even more respect from your peers and be more fulfilled in your personal life so here are nine tips on how to be a better leader tip number one integrity integrity is the foundation of all leadership people are not willing to follow someone whose actions are unethical or unjust imagine you are working for a boss who despite your great efforts and sacrifices for the company gives the job promotion to employee that has been slacking off why would you follow such a leader on the other hand when we operate from integrity regain the trust of the people we work closely with trust amongst team members is one of the most accurate predictors of success and it all starts with the leaders integrity then the team members can reciprocate the behavior of the leader and create a favorable atmosphere so that everyone can benefit that number two is that actions speak louder than words a great leader should lead by example not delegate something to his followers not willing to do himself during World War one general george s patton led his troops by walking in front of the tanks despite the risk of being easily shot by the enemies martin luther king jr mahatma gandhi were all great leaders who stood up and led by example you’re not a true leader if you are not brave enough to take the first leap practice doing three small things were afraid of every day to get familiar with being uncomfortable when the time comes to take charge you’ll have built the resilience and confidence abilities your friends or classmates will then see you as a powerful gifted leader while you are enjoying the fruits of your labor tip number 3 be persuasive the third secret to making people follow you as a leader is to become more persuasive persuasion is too broad of a topic to cover in a single point so you should definitely spend a lot of time studying it because it will skyrocket your success one powerful thing you can do to 10 times your persuasion when you ask someone to do something for you is to frame it so that they see the benefit they get from doing a particular thing if you can persuade your buddy to come work out with you it would be wiser to show him what he will get increased confidence longer life and girls looking at him right you’ve been saying that you feel bored or unmotivated to go to the gym alone and you need a partner tip number four is to make people feel important the billionaire Mary Kay ashes secret to building your empire would imagine that every person she met had a sign on their forehead that said make me feel important leadership is not about the leader it’s about the followers according to her this is a secret to succeed in life but how do i make people feel important genuinely ask them questions about their interests passions concerns and other things don’t forget to praise and thank them on the smallest achievement never condemn offer constructive feedback and that will help them improve their number five is depraved in public and correct and private one of the worst thing the leader can do is to condemn someone for a mistake in front of his or her colleagues now you’ve ever had friends over and your parents got mad at you for something you probably felt like this not only will violate the make people feel important tool but you will lose your respect and credibility as a leader of course we can all agree that mistake should be paid attention to and corrected in order to not be repeated but here’s a framework on how to give proper criticism so the person that you were criticizing two things that they do well before criticizing them and then one after the criticism this is called sandwich approach let’s say that your colleague or business partner is 20 minutes late every morning first you talk to him in private and start with the praise then you include the criticism and again finishers of praise James the customer service you provide for our client is really outstanding the fact that you’re late for work every morning is a problem for us because our team and clients need your exceptional skills and knowledge at that time of day just like that the number six is to take responsibility for your mistakes leader is not supposed to be perfect or not make any mistakes making mistakes is completely normal unless you try to cover them up deny them or make somebody else responsible for them a great leader earns respect by admitting his or her mistakes and learning the lesson vulnerability is a sign of leadership strength it is mistakenly viewed as a weakness at number seven is a have a clear goal or a vision successful companies reach consensus on all of the common goals from top to the bottom of the hierarchy even the most brilliant strategy will fail if such consensus has not received after you have set a clear achievable and yet at the same time challenging goal as a leader and communicated them a call Emily to all of your followers were bound to achieve them despite the University another tip to achieve goals be it for yourself for the organization you’re in is to write them on paper people with written goals are 51-percent more likely to achieve the goals then without yet only three out of a hundred volts actually write their goals down according to a study in the UK number eight is to be knowledgeable so this was the first tip and how to think like dr. house being knowledgeable as a leader is crucial in order to feel confident and gain the respect of your followers saying that you don’t know how to do something and asking for advice is fine but when this happens regularly you start to lose your leadership credibility you still have to have that technical information always seek out new information and try to better yourself as a person this will inevitably make you a better leader and more valuable as a person that number nine is to surround yourself with great people there’s a saying that you were the sum average of the five people you spend most of your time with no matter how great the leader is he or she will always be limited by the potential of his employees let go of the old friends or relatives that are holding a batter has a whole bunch of negativity in their life it’s ok to help them but if they keep dragging down you should probably let them go surround yourself with epic people that will challenge you to make a stronger version of yourself Andrew Carnegie attributed his success to being surrounded with people way smarter than he was in putting the brainpower to youth become one of the wealthiest men in the world i was Thomas Edison able to invent the light bulb without formal education he simply use the brand of highly educated physicist and people that excelled academically in combination with his perseverance he was able to add more than 1,000 patents to his name I hope you guys enjoyed this video and

    To add to the make people feel important point, becoming friends with your subordinates allows you to better judge who is best equipped to handle specific jobs while being able to improve their mediocre points and avoiding their weaknesses.Also helps you make your subordinates better making your life easier while adding value to them. Everyone wins!

    Really being a leader is just about being able to bring out the best in others, just with more people while trying to achieve a common goal. We all have friends, and we all have ones we make better. We all also have goals. Leadership is just about combining these two.

    Great Video… Please research The Edison portion though. He is NOT a good example of a leader. Davy, Warren de la Rue, Swan's work on the light-bulb all predate Edison by years. He may have made improvements (or did some of the scientist working for him…) but Edison=bad example as a leader or inventor (and if integrity is your #1 topic… then that even makes the case for the removal of Edison stronger)

    This is golden condensed information. Several of these I was already aware of. It's unfortunate that even though we've known a lot of these for a long time very few leaders follow them because they think they know better and constantly fail. The key is "influencing" them to consider the idea that they might be wrong and then directing them to this video with an open mind. Very very difficult with most so-called leadership.

    Great point in Tip 5: Praise in public – correct in private.
