JOYFUL-WORKPLACE.COM MARCH 19, 2019
1. Learn somethingnew everyday–
In order to build your leadership level, list yourstrengths and the level of expertise of the strength.For example,
if writing is yourstrength,then mark yourself as a beginner, intermediate or an expert in writing. Then start
learning something new about yourstrength everyday consistently.You will grow in your knowledge of domain
and move on to the next level over a period of time to become an expert.
2. Strengthen your relationships
Building and growing relationships will definitely help you become a better leader. With more like minded
people in yourcircle, you will be more connected. It will also help to brainstorm ideas and share insights and
feedback. As a leader, teaching others how to apply knowledge so they don’t make the same mistakes will
create lasting associations.
3. Be responsible
Start taking full responsibility in every choice you make at work. Commit to completing the task at hand. This
will help you to reach yourgoals. You will start creating the world that you dreamt of, when you start making
real choices for yourself
What are your strengths? What drives you and gives you a sense ofpurpose? Do the work with 100%
dedication so that you will be able to explore your unique strengths.Maintain consistency every day. Align with
the work that you are doing presently. To check youralignment with the work, ask yourself, “What is my most
useful contribution to my work in this moment?”. If you get an answer immediately and you are happily
satisfied with the answer, which means you are aligned in yourwork.
5.Embrace challenges at work
When faced with challenges, you can either fight or overcome the challenge. Start looking at every challenge as
an opportunity to grow. There is a lesson in every challenging situation. Do not miss the chance to learn
something new, either about yourfield or about yourself.
6. Be your own decision maker
As the saying goes,“Ideas are common; execution is everything” leaders always execute. If you see a
problem, fix it. Don’t wait for someone else to do it because that person may never come along. Bet on yourself.
It’s the safest risk. Many a time you may not see the desired results, however that should not stop you from
moving forwards. Trust yourideas even if others do not trust. They may not be able to see yourvision. In case
the idea fails, the learning should not fail.
The best way to learn and be an expert is by teaching others.When you start sharing your experiences and
wisdom, you start establishing yourself as a leader. Do not be a dictator. Through teaching others,you become
an inspiration to lead, to learn, or simply to participate more. Share your knowledge in as many ways as you
can. Become a mentor or a volunteer or give presentations in seminars or webinars. Reach out to your directors
and let them know that you have something of value to contribute.
8.Take Guidance when required
When faced with challenges, be ready to approach an expert. One can’t lead alone always. Taking suggestions
will not make you any less of an expert or a leader. In fact, you will gain more respect by approaching for
advice when you needed it than to try it single-handedly and fail. It’s also important to acknowledge the person
who guided you. Never try to hide the fact that you got help. By showing gratitude, you’ll show maturity and
willingness to be a team player.
9.See the bigger picture
The ability to overcome unpredictable challenges will mold you as a good leader. Always have an alternate plan
ready ahead of time in case of any unforeseen circumstances. One of the good qualities of a leader is to be able
to see the bigger image along with the problems even before they occur. Have predictive suggestions for
overcoming the potential problems is leader’s fine quality and makes a leader valuable.
10. Don’t be disappointed
One may not succeed 100% all the time. It is okay to fail.! To quote Henry Ford, “Failure is simply the
opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.” We may not be aware but some of the biggest brands
are the result of failures. Pick yourself up and take the next step.If you can do this, you have the traits of an
It is through mistakes we learn and grow. The one who makes no mistakes, makes nothing.To perfect any skill
requires a lot of practice. Even athletes spend thousands ofhours practicing and perfecting their skills. To build
yourself as a leader also requires discipline, dedication and determination with loads of practice and patience.
