Our business, the International Leadership Institute, has been helping people develop and use leadership skills since 1985.
We've come up with three key leadership skills. If you have any interest in being an effective leader, thse skills need to become second nature to you:
1. Future orientation
3. Generosity and compassion
Being future-oriented is the first key skill for leaders. Competent leaders must articulate a vision for the organization, then find practical means of reminding everyone about the vision daily. Just words is not enough; leaders need to model and define both the means and the methods by which they expect the organization's members to live out the vision, every day.
