If we understand leadership from personal attributes we could understand that the leader is born as a leader. It would be that person who knows how to guide and lead the group, organize, solve the problems that arise and who also approve of the rest of the people as such.
If we talk about leading by its position, we would have a leader who “becomes” which is going to shape with the passing of time and experiences, such as going to occupy high positions.
When we refer to a leader for his behaviour, we could look at those aspects which devote attention to their actions.
Leadership and management are not the same things, but they go hand in hand. Leaders inspire and motivate people, focusing on people and setting new directions for a group to follow. Managers plan, organise, coordinate and facilitate, organizing people, materials and budgets to pursue objectives. You can be a leader and a manager in the same role.
Good leaders will have a strong vision and an ability to influence and unite people behind them, which makes them valuable to an organisation. A leader can be radical and inspire change and development. Successful leaders know which approach and tools are best for each situation and they amend their behaviour after careful analysis of themselves, their team members, the organisation and other outside factors.
To be a good leader you need to know and apply:
How to coach to improve performance
How to develop your team’s culture
The importance of diversity and inclusion and what you can contribute to it
How to create your unique style as a leader and adapt your style depending on the situation.
