True leadership is a rare commodity, So exactly, what kind of leader is a good leader? Why do people want to listen to one person and be reluctant to another? Leadership science believes that leaders must have good qualities and accomplishments,
The following qualities distinguish leaders:
Trust is established over time or destroyed over time. There are many ways to build trust. Leaders can gain trust by focusing on employees’ needs, aspirations, and other factors. In fact, we are more inclined to trust our friends than our opponents. Trust can also be gained through expertise and skills. People with deep expertise and skills are more likely to gain trust because they have full confidence in their abilities and can make wise decisions. Similarly, for leaders who can maintain consistent quality, it is easy to gain trust.
2.Inspire and motivate others
The leaders who are good at inspiring and motivating their employees are energetic and enthusiastic. They bring dynamism to the team, motivate each member to face the challenge, meet difficulties, and surpass oneself. Most leaders focus their energy on completing various task indicators on the work list and often overlook the incentives for employees. This practice is incorrect. Neglecting the role of motivation, employees can only perform their jobs properly, but they cannot achieve their potential. However, if importance is attached to the role of incentives, leaders will inspire energy and enthusiasm that were neglected by employees. This is enough to determine the success or failure of the company. In short, the key to success or failure is that each leader should find a way to properly encourage employees and stimulate their potential.
3.Encouragement or Support
During the work period, if leaders can always encourage employees to learn new skills and expand their majors, they can continuously improve their satisfaction and engagement. Employees with expanded capabilities will be better at work in the future and will greatly increase their chances of promotion. Outstanding leaders are deeply gratified by the success of their employees. If leaders can create an environment that encourages employees to learn lessons from mistakes and spend time with them to analyze the reasons for success and achieve what they achieve, in such an environment, employees can be further developed, and potential can be Play.
Driven results are a key leadership quality for success. However, some companies tend to “stress” (results-driven) without “decompression” (incentives), which ultimately leads to insufficient motivation for employees. On the contrary, only “decompression” but no “pressure” will not achieve the best results. Only a balance between these two methods is the best policy. Leaders who maximize the effectiveness of “results-driven” are also good at allowing employees to work hard and work towards the highest goals. Excellence is the standard they set for the team. Leaders who are good at balancing the two will not worry about raising high standards for employees, nor are they always reminding employees of the gap between their progress and the ultimate goal.
5.Create a good relationship
In a team, leaders who understand the personal needs and concerns of their employees will have higher employee satisfaction and engagement than other leaders. Studies have shown that leaders with high levels of employee satisfaction and engagement can often balance the “pursuit of work goals” and “care about employee needs” behaviours. However, this does not mean that they neglected the target mission. On the contrary, while considering the deadline for the target task, they also considered the special needs of the employees and thus demonstrated their personal respect for the employees.
Leaders who can clearly define the direction and goals of employees can improve employee satisfaction. Degree and engagement. Such leaders will not talk about the macroeconomic situation or set a daily size, but will clearly outline the prospects. Successful leaders will always emphasize the company’s direction and the key steps toward success. Leaders need to let employees know how their efforts are critical to the success of the company and how they can play a pivotal role in helping the company succeed.
For those leaders who have the highest level of employee satisfaction and engagement, they have a valuable quality – heroic and fearless, never discouraged. They face difficulties, face difficulties, and do not back down. As long as there are signs that there are problems, they will start to deal with them frankly and decisively. Some leaders will hold the idea that “the problem will naturally be solved.” In fact, they are just deceiving themselves. Facing problems, solving problems, and insisting on each person’s responsibilities and obligations.
Many examples have shown that improving the quality of leadership can have a positive effect on employee satisfaction/friendship, but improving certain specific leadership qualities will achieve better results.
