Leadership is not about a title or a designation. It’s about impact, influence and inspiration – Robin S. Sharma
Leaders differ from managers because of their ability to bring about change through other people, which is why the biggest challenge facing leaders is the gap between execution and strategy. They understand their vision and the value that it brings to their organization, but this doesn’t always translate to employees. And for this reason, you need to create value.
Leadership involves balancing the needs of all stakeholders; desires of employees, expectations of management, and overall vision of the organization. A good leader uses these to maximize value when making decisions – a s a leader, the decisions you make should involve everyone’s perspective.
The only way to bring about long-term success and organizational change is with the employees themselves. To create a strong company culture, you need to have a deep understanding of your employees, and nurture a workplace environment where ideas and thoughts flow freely. When employees see the value that they contribute, it will foster engagement and drive performance which will align their views with the company vision.
This applies to you, and to your employees. Leadership begins with the establishment of values and ethics you want to portray as a leader. This will influence their behavior and inspire them to develop as colleagues and individuals. It will help to increase company turnover rates, aid in succession planning, and most importantly, establish an environment of continual improvement.
While implementing these ideas will will help you on the path to create value as a leader, they are a means to an end. Do you know what the most important part of leadership is?
Communication. If you make assumptions and base decision-making solely on your perspective, you will not be a leader — you will be a manager.
