goals and engaging employees.
Leadership skills can be taught and are essential to being a leader in an
organisation, the ability to delegate and to communicate effectively is
paramount. Informally you can lead by motivating and inspiring your colleagues
The desire to lead is often due to wanting to motivate others and help them
succeed. However, leadership roles are given to those good at their roles and not
necessarily to those suited to the job. A good leader will lead by example,
listen, be fair, be authentic, and take responsibility for their teams.
