Most Managers are promoted to a supervisory role after excelling in their prior role. For example, an outstanding hair stylist may receive a promotion to be a Store Manager. While they may be good at cutting hair and possess the ability to work well with others on a day-to-day basis, this doesn’t mean they can lead their Team to a higher level. In order to move the team from ordinary to extraordinary, the effective Manager needs to possess and master two types of skills: Management Skills and Leadership Skills. While both are valuable and necessary, the Leader possesses certain skills that a Manager may struggle with.
While there are many different types of leadership styles, experts agree that certain traits are found in effective leaders regardless of their style. Here is a list of some of the most common traits among successful leaders.
Great leaders are rarely born. They are developed from experience, mentoring and training. Personal traits play a major role in who will be successful leading others. However, it is important to remember that people are forever learning and growing. If your goal is to be a leader, then practice demonstrating these traits in your daily work.
