Courageous Leadership: How to Build Backbone, Boost Performance, and Get Results

There’s more to leadership than having a notable title and being in charge of a team. You might have the authority to manage other people, but if you’re an unsuccessful leader, you won’t be able to guide and inspire your employees to accomplish their goals.

Leadership Skills That Are Critical To Success

The business pages of the world’s newspapers are filled with stories about managers and executives who suddenly self destruct because of their lack of leadership skills. Individuals who were once considered to be successful ultimately fail, either ending up in a dead-end career or let go by their once seemingly loyal organization. This phenomenon is called derailment. Just as a train falls off of its tracks, this breakdown is never intentional, and it almost always causes considerable damage. The good news is that derailment can be predicted, and even prevented, when managers are given the right leadership skills resources.

What Makes an Effective Leader?

What makes a good leader, and can you actually teach ways to be a good leader? Let’s explore:

Clear communication is the foundation of quality leadership. Being able to actively listen to team members, facilitate productive conversation, clearly articulate plans and next steps, and effectively guide discussions may sound like no-brainer skills—but effective communication is an art and a science. If you can build a culture of positive, direct, and open communication, you’re well on the way to a productive culture of leadership.

Strong leaders aren’t just excited about the work—they’re able to get their rest of their team excited, too. To improve motivation, it’s important to set tangible goals for everybody to work toward, communicate why the job matters, exhibit a positive attitude, and recognize employees for their contributions.

The ability to understand, respect, and value each individual for their contribution to a team is an important part of leadership. Leaders can’t be leaders unless they have people to lead, so appreciating and relating to those people is absolutely essential. Encourage employees to really work toward understanding, listening to, and building off of one another to solve problems and innovate.

Good leaders have a big-picture understanding of how the organization works. Encouraging employees to think beyond their individual tasks to understand how those tasks ladder up to the whole of your organizational objectives is crucial. This kind of thinking can also lead to innovative solutions that may have been missed by an individual, task-focused mentality.

Leading with Authenticity during Challenging Times

The ability to guide an organization through the discomfort and opportunity of tumultuous change continues to be amongst the most vexing and enduring of leadership responsibilities. Living on the edge of volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity (VUCA) has always been challenging and emotionally draining—even when things are going well; but the difficulty level and stress have ramped up considerably in the emergent context where leaders face increasing tension and questions around the very essence and meaning of authenticity, integrity, truthfulness, and trust. Striking the right chord of candor and authenticity has become even more critical as people grapple with greater confusion and conflict as to their perceptions of what is real and what is “fake.”

Leadership Development: 12 Ways to Develop Remarkable Leaders

We are all born with a unique set of talents. While these abilities certainly help leadership development to evolve, truly remarkable leaders can only become remarkable through a continuous and upward climb of learning. In other words, remarkable leaders are made. And that means leadership skills can be developed with the right approach.

Leadership Styles: Measuring and Refining Your Skills

Why do some leaders flourish while others fail? Effective leaders positively influence the behavior of their followers, getting them to work toward shared goals. But leaders have different ways in which they characteristically influence others. One leader may typically appeal to team members’ competitive drive. Another leader may rally the troops around a cause. Yet another leader may bolster their self-confidence. Still another leader may guide team members according to carefully laid plans. Whose way of leading is best? It all depends.
