Ten Effective Ways to Develop Leadership Skills

1. Ask your employees about their personal lives and get to know them as human beings. Show you truly care about your employees. Some questions to ask:

     •  What kind of music do your like?
     •  How old are your kids? What grades?
     •  What’s the best thing you’ve done with your family?
     •  What are some of your hobbies?
     •  Do you have a favorite sports team?
     •  How are things at home?
     •  How did you meet your husband/wife?

2. Create an atmosphere of trust. Quality communication is critical. Talk about topics and issues that matter and be open and candid. Encourage them to do the same.

3. Have honest conversations. Lead by example and set the tone. Be transparent.

4. Listen instead of talk. You can’t learn anything if you’re doing all the talking!

5. Create open lines of communication between all of your employees (which will reduce misunderstandings and build trust.) Schedule or encourage team events, a chat room (for remote employees), eat lunch together, have a team event off-site.

6. Don’t make performance conversations personal.

7. Know what’s going on. Stay engaged with your employees. Ask for feedback. Figure out who’s disengaged.

8. Ask more questions and give less direction/advice.

9. Make time for one-on-ones with employees. Be in the moment and have strong eye contact.

10. Be visible. Make time each day to spend with your employees in their environment. They feel move comfortable sharing in their environment than your office.
