“What is the secret to great leadership?” is one of the most often asked questions you hear in leadership and management consulting. Building a team of people and leading that team can be a daunting task. Many leaders have struggled for years and continue to struggle with that issue. That is why I think it extremely important and valuable to list the top five secrets to being a great leader. Here they are:
#1 – Have a mission and vision statement
#2 – Hire well
#3 – Have a proper employee orientation at the start
#4 – Hold regular meetings
#5 – Hold recognition and special events
As a leader, you will want to do these things to create an effective team. It is your role as the leader to build a team that will get the results you desire, i.e., your mission and vision statements that define your purpose and desired future – and the results delivered by the team you are surrounded by.
