The New Style of Leadership

Being a great leader is about more than pushing new ideas forward, or about taking control of a team. A great leader also strives to be a motivator and mentor for their team. Leadership has steadily evolved as the incoming generation has entered the work force, and it is no longer just about being a commander-in-chief.

The new style of leadership focuses more on modern company culture, conversation, and engagement. By chipping away at the previous leadership models, companies are able to create environments that boast a much more dynamic atmosphere, and that is full of staff that are collaborating their ideas in order to move the company forward.

Here are a few things that companies can focus on in order to bring their leadership skills to the next level:

Having a Leadership Culture instead of Having a Leader

Listening instead of Commanding

Investing in People instead of Investing in Tools

Engaging instead of Messaging

Accepting Responsibility instead of Assigning Blame

Showing instead of Telling
