Have you ever wondered why some leaders are trying so hard where as others seem to be natural leaders even if they do not try?
Here are three good leadership skills that will set you apart:
1. Listen – A good leader listens well. The greatest trap for a good leader is to not hear the voices in the wind. Without that fragile data that comes to you every day from the people around you you will soon find yourself without someone to lead. And guess what – followers make a leader: no followers = no leader!
2. Understand – A good leader needs to understand. Understanding means setting aside your preconceived notions of what needs to be done and seeing the situation nakedly and clearly. If you don’t understand what you are up against or where you are going, you are like a blind leading the blind: in circles!
3. Translate – A good leader needs to be able to translate understanding into action steps. All the listening and understanding only serve you well if you know how to translate the data into skillful action. Sometimes the right path will be obvious, sometimes it won’t. How well can you translate?
