Leadership is never “won”. It’s a state of mind that is always evolving, growing, and changing. A compassionate leader is one that wants to grow in their skills and their abilities to inspire as a leader. Tips to become a better leader in a modern business world are:
• Adaptability is more important than ever – With the events of the last few years, the business world has changed like never before. Professionals are taking on new views when it comes to work life balance, they have new priorities, and in order for leaders to keep motivating and inspiring a modern workforce, they need to learn to adapt. Today’s leaders don’t try to fit their teams into a single “box”, but they take them as they are and appreciate what their differences bring to the table.
• Humility – Modern compassionate leadership is humble leadership. No leader is perfect and all have room to grow in their leadership development. Humility in leadership in 2023 means accepting constructive feedback, accepting where you can use a bit of growth, and moving forward with recognition and appreciation.
• Accept ideas but be decisive – You have the team you do for a reason, and you should trust their viewpoints and ideas when it comes to goals and problem solving. Great leaders in 2023 should be open to listening to these new ideas or new ways to get things done, but in the end, they should also be decisive and honest about the decisions being made.
• Know when and how to delegate – Teams in 2023 are more eager than ever to show off what they’ve got. They want their talents to be appreciated and recognized, but they need opportunities to prove what they’re capable of. Knowing when and how to delegate tasks and provide challenges to teams is critical in inspiring and motivating them.
