Rules and habits that can shape you into a great leader: Part 4 – Tokunbo Fasoro

Hello every one, we apologize for our unavailability over the weekend. It was due to technical issues.  But now we are back with a bang! Lol!

Just to refresh your memory, we have been talking about how most successful leaders did not get there by accident; they learned and applied habits of great leaders. This is the Part 4 and the last part of our shaping a leader series.

  1. Be reasonable: You need to listen to everyone’s opinion and be fair in picking the most sensible one to adopt.
  2. Keep learning and improving: A great leader looks for every opportunity to learn. Read as much as you can, take classes when you have the opportunity and work on improving your skills and processes constantly.
  3. Never give up: You need to keep trying, not giving up. A little persistence does not hurt anyone and eventually might do the trick.
  4. Learn from your mistakes: Avoid making the same mistake twice. If something isn’t working, change your approach.
  5. Always give feedback: It is important you let your team know what they are doing well and what needs further improvement. A person usually feels motivated and would do better when they are told how well they have done.
  6. Be approachable: You should be someone who people can open up to. Let people know they can trust you.
  7. Get your team together: Use team-building exercises and ensure that there is positive energy around your people. Avoid having favorites but ensure that you treat everyone equally.

We hope we are making a difference, because we believe that all BIE readers are leaders in the making.

Thank you for your time and stay connected to BI Empowerment.
