Enhance Your Leadership Skills

15. Instead of Delegating You Do Everything Yourself

Management by objectives external and management by delegation external go hand in hand. Is there a need for followers when the leader does everything? Well, let’s think about it in different terms: Can any leader dance at 50 weddings at the same time?

At how many weddings are you dancing?

Remember: Delegation is good management and a sign of strength.

14. I’m Too Busy Right Now

We’ve all heard it; and we know it only means we are not a priority right now. But followers that feel ignored or passed over lose confidence in their leader.

Are your ears always open for your followers?

Remember: A leader that stops having time stops being a leader.

13. Ignoring Different Personalities

Throwing together a few folks with good reputation isn’t leading but asking for disaster. A leader understands how to use the different personalities to generate more value.

Do you?

Very often you will hear the request that a follower should also provide the solution when reporting about a problem.But think about it, if the follower already has the solution—who is the leader?

Remember: A chain is never stronger than the weakest link.

12. Tolerate Negligence

Leaders are on top of the game—24/7. They know that allowing the smallest negligence is like inviting the mice to dance on the table.

Do you have everything under control?

Remember: A leader is valued by her followers.

11. Ignore Standards

The quality of an individual is reflect in the standards they set for themselves.
Ray Kroc

Do you have standards?

Remember: Standards don’t need to be standardized.
