Leadership matters, and the face of leaders is changing. As more and more Baby Boomers retire (10,000 retire every day), Millennials take on many of the leadership roles.
Yet, 63% of Millennials feel a lack of leadership development.
There's no "one size fits all" guide for being a successful leader in today's fast-paced, high-tech world. There are, however, specific skills today's leaders need to inspire, motivate, and unify others to achieve a shared vision and succeed.
Today leaders must develop themselves as well as developing others.
Leaders must have emotional intelligence:
The rules for leading in today's workplace are changing. Leaders need to be smart, strategic, and agile. But it doesn't stop there. Leaders also need personal qualities such as self-awareness, empathy, adaptability, initiative, and persuasiveness.
Leaders must be great listeners:
Never before has the workplace been so diverse, and this diversity brings with it different ideas and perspectives. A great listener takes other's views into account and truly considers what they have to say.
Leaders must be effective communicators:
According to a survey by Harvard Business Review, clear communication of expectations is among the top skills required for effective leadership. Leaders must be influencers who motivate, engage, and effectively relay their strategic vision.
Leaders must be able to deliver, as well as receive feedback.
Feedback opens the door to developing a mutual commitment to honesty and improvement. Giving and receiving feedback fosters a growth mindset and establishes trust.
Leaders must show confidence.
Confident leaders actively seek opportunities and challenges for personal learning and development as they continue on their road to mastery.
