Lead by example.
Leaders need to show, not just tell. If you want your people to be punctual, make sure you are there on time. If professionalism is a priority, make sure you’re dressed like a professional, and treat everyone you interact with (both in-person and online) as a professional. Set the tone and your team will follow it.
A little humility goes a long way.
There’s a difference between a leader and a boss. While both are in charge, a leader shares the spotlight and is comfortable crediting others. While it might seem counter-intuitive, being humble takes more confidence than basking in glory. Your people will appreciate it, and your fans will, too.
Effective communication is imperative, both in the office and in life. Great leaders make sure they are heard and understood, but they also know the importance of listening. Communication is a two-way street, and making the most of it will have your organization moving forward instead of pumping the brakes.
