How to Be an Effective Leader ? • Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence. • Learn all that you can about the services you offer. Become familiar with company history, the mission statement and current leadership. • Increase your visibility in work areas. Chip in with willing hands to meet goals and work with the team. • Effective leaders must maintain workers' confidence and a positive attitude. Such as "I know you can do it" or "You can handle this." • Encourage others by affirming the things they did right and showing them what they could do to improve, if needed. Don't embarrass or put others down in public. • Books by prominent leaders will inspire you and provide examples of effective leadership. • Be an active listener. Be open to new ideas and allow employees to voice concerns about job-related issues.
  11. Communication is simply the act of transferring information from one place to another.
  12. How To Communicate Effectively ? • It is absolutely critical to be as direct, to the point and concise as possible. • “Bosses often say, ‘Can you have that report to me? It’s really important, and I’d really like to have it,’. A more effective way to deliver that message: “Can you please get that report to me? I’d like it on my desk by 5 p.m. Friday.” • Your attitude while talking is also important. • If you open yourself to other opinions and perspectives, you’ll find it much easier to get your own message across. • Do ask open-ended questions. They can buy time. • Don’t say negative things about colleagues when they’re not around. That identifies you as a gossip and someone who can’t be trusted. • Don’t be a Pessimist. Even if you think your colleague or boss is completely wrong about something, you can counter with an open- ended question that shows respect and a can-do spirit.
