We all make mistakes and nobody’s perfect. So do leaders. When you are a leader who is making efforts and taking risks to improve, make sure you do not make these mistakes:
- Not being the idol of employees: when you can’t be the example to your employees, they won’t feel connected. You make them what you want them to be.
- Not having powerful expectations: if you don’t have a strong vision, when you cannot have clear ones, you cannot be influential to other people.
- Not working to improve others’ skills: if you’re not able of showing others honesty and control of feelings, you will leave others I doubt and.
- Not being a good communicator: when you do not have the ability to say what you want from people in a clear way, you won’t accomplish what you are aiming at.
- Not delegating properly: if you want to do everything on your own, you will lead others to be frustrated and will create a chaotic environment around you.
- Ignoring your faults: when you do not admit your mistakes and when you are not ready to learn from them, you will keep on falling in the same problems over and over.
- Not developing emotional intelligence: If you are not tolerant, understanding or open to you relationship with others, you will make people around you suffer.
- Not being motivating enough: if you do not appreciate the hard work of others and working on improving their productivity, you will be losing your best chances to go further.
- Losing your motivation: when you always have the feeling of satisfaction, forgetting about improving and enhancing your efforts, you will realize that your team is only working to be paid.
- Not maintaining your standards: if you find yourself in a failure phase and you do not work on overcoming it, others will be doing the same and will not be motivated enough to help.
- Not asking for change: if you are satisfied, not seeking for changes or innovating ideas and if you do not work to make a difference, your team will have no inspiration for future development.
- Forgetting about honesty and truthfulness: You cannot be a leader and a dishonest person at the same time. You cannot deny that you need to improve. Everything you do is never forgotten and is remembered as legacy. Be the good leader, and remember who you are, what you want, and how to get it.
