Leadership Skills: Leaders Aren't Born, They're Made
In a time of constant change, leadership skills are one of the most important sets of skills that you and your staff can possess. Leadership skills are not just for those in positions of authority but can be developed and used by those at any level of the organisation. Having leadership skills means that your staff are committed to the goals of your team and organisation; know how to motivate themselves and others to achieve them; and know how to put important values such as honesty, service, and added value above short-term gains such as goal-achievement and profit.
