Skills of Effective Leadership include the following:
Leads by example: A good leader does what everyone else is to do. You cannot give law and you do not abide by it.
If you want your team to be punctual, then, you also have to be punctual. When you practice what you preach, you earn the respect and the loyalty of your team.
A problem solver: A good leader always looks for a way out of every bad situation. They are solution givers. Instead of thinking about the problem, they always think of how to fix the problem. They are goal oriented.
Good communication skill: Effective communication is needed, to be an effective leader. It should not be about you, expressing your feelings; you must also learn to listen to others. They love to listen to feedbacks with an open mind.
Courageous: A good leader is ready to break the rules, or, face challenges, just for the team to achieve the set goals of the organization.
Every organization tries to run on effective leadership. Businesses should be managed by leaders, who cannot only give strategies on how the organization should work better but also leaders, who can motivate people to work, in order to achieve the deserved success.
