How to be a good leader
Professionalism. The head must not to know all the technical aspects, but he must have a complete understanding of the field, which deals with the company. In addition, a good leader must constantly be aware of the latest technical and technological innovations and to possess many other related knowledge, for example, psychological, legal and economic in order to fully use the capabilities of the staff, to see the future and to solve tasks in a comprehensive manner.
Discipline. Head, first of all your example needs to show that the punctuality, reliability and production discipline for him not an empty phrase. Only then can he demand the same from their subordinates. But discipline is not something that all go to attention, and the understanding of place and time. This concept includes many things, including the mode of work and ethics, and even dress code.
Rigor. Errors are inevitable, but that doesn't mean they should go unpunished. The degree of punishment depends on many factors, primarily the seriousness of the incident, but be sure to analyze the situation, to punish those really guilty. If you are strict head, do not forget about encouragement. And reprimands to do better alone, but to encourage – with all the team.
Demands. You should clearly know the capabilities of their employees and assign them tasks that they will cope, even due to the fact that they have to educate ourselves. New knowledge and success in overcoming obstacles – a great incentive for many people, so use this for the benefit of the common cause.
The ability to understand people. Actually it comes with age, but much becomes clear if you master the basics of psychology and you will know the existing human psycho. They are all quite detailed and psychologists have long developed recommendations on how to maximise the potential of people with different psychological characteristics.
Responsibility. Remember that the work of the team as a whole answer is you. You must make responsible decisions, if necessary after hearing expert opinion. Your leadership should be based on honesty, and your model behavior will determine the moral climate that is established in your team.
Leadership qualities. Remember that a leader does not happen without a team. You show the direction, define strategic objectives, but their implementation generally depends on each member of the team. Do not neglect the problems of their employees, be aware of their joys and troubles. Just feeling like a real team, where each member is equally important, your employees will be able not only to fully realise its potential, but also to get pleasure from work. Especially if it is encouraged and even financially. Success!
