I have had the privilege of leading others in my professional and personal life, and it has been both a rewarding and challenging experience. I have found that great leaders focus on results and work to develop strong relationships with those under their charge; this allows them to better understand their needs, strengths, and areas for improvement.
They are able to build trust between themselves and team members by listening, realizing each person’s unique worth, and treating them with respect. Through this leadership style, successful projects can be completed with efficiency and enthusiasm. I am grateful for the opportunity to have served as a leader throughout my career and thrive whenever I am presented with the chance to lead again.
Making decisions can be a tricky endeavor – what if the results don’t turn out as expected? However, taking charge and making decisions when necessary is an invaluable skill for any individual. It takes practice to get used to being in that position of power and having to be accountable for your own choices, but as time goes on the confidence to make these decisions will grow. Even if things don’t work out at first, it’s important to remember that everyone makes mistakes and use them as an opportunity for growth rather than dwelling on them.
