20 Key Elements for Leadership Skills

  1. 1. 20 Key Elements for Leadership Skills Leadership skills I was recently in conversation with a Major from the British Army. We were discussing the elements that go http://www.amanet.org/training/seminars/leadership-training.aspx to make good leaders. Our purpose was to decide upon the contents of a leadership course. We brainstormed the 20 key elements that would be needed in a discussion of leadership. Here they are, for your information: Setting goals Goal focus is the most important skill to learn. Identify the target: know what http://www.leadcompass.co.za/professional-services/emo tional-intelligence-training/ you want to achieve. If you know what you want to achieve you can begin to communicate that to the team. If you do not know what you want, you are forced to dither, which is not a sign of leadership. Communication You may have a clear goal but be unable to communicate it to others. The goal must be clearly communicated to all http://www.leadcompass.co.za/professional-services/sales-management-training-courses/ who need to know. The great leaders are also the great communicators. Churchill, Gandhi, Napoleon, ML King were all master communicators. They knew how to affect others with the correct use of words, tone and body language. Accurate language Accuracy is a subset of communication. A lack of accuracy was the cause of the fatal "charge of the light brigade". Errors in clarity will cost you.
  2. 2. Accurate use of language will save you time, money and effort. Learn how to improve the clarity of the spoken and written word. Influencing Influencing is a subset of communication. Peoples actions are directed by their thoughts. Is it possible to use language to influence the thoughts of others? Of course! So, if you can influence their thoughts, you can influence their actions. Learn how to influence the minds of others.
