How to Be a Good Leader and Lead Effectively?
In this article I want to talk to you about how to be a good leader and develop the skills you need to lead your business.
Do you like me feel that in this crazy online bubble we put certain people on a pedestal because of how many followers they have?
People who are self-proclaimed ‘leaders’ and ‘influencers’?
A few incidents have happened to me recently that got me thinking about what is a true leader and my thoughts are:
– You don’t need a big social media following to be a leader.
– Being a leader is about your intentions, your attitude, your behaviour.
I hear and see so many entrepreneurs holding back as they don’t feel they are a leader or ‘influencer’ yet and I want to encourage you to realise that you can be a leader anytime you wish.
So, want to know how to be good leader?
You can’t be a leader just by saying you are one. Leadership needs to be worked at. Transform yourself into the kind of leader your small business needs with these 6 keys to business leadership.
1. A good leader is someone who ACTS like a leader, not just TALKS like a leader.
2. A good leader is someone who shows-up when they are needed, and not just on social media.
3. A good leader is someone who takes responsibility for a situation, even if it’s not their responsibility.
4. A good leader takes the time to listen and shows interest.
5. A good leader asks for feedback about themselves.
6. A good leader thinks strategically.

How to Be a Good Leader Starts With You
We can all be leaders – and it starts in our homes, in our communities and when we are interacting with people on a daily basis.
I want to encourage you to not hold back in your business as you don’t feel like you are big enough, important enough or ‘online-famous’ enough.
All of that stuff is just vanity metrics and we can all make a difference in this world. We just have to decide to!
