20 Ways to Become a Better Leader Right Now

Good leaders don’t just happen overnight.

Apologize quickly without hesitation
Admit when you don’t know every answer
Analyze first, then act
Train others only when you really know the topic
Be quick with positive feedback, slow with criticism
Ask personal questions
Embrace failure on projects
Hire for potential
Fire for negligence
Mentor intentionally
Share good ideas quickly and often
Promote slowly
Don’t just communicate, facilitate
Reward creativity, not mindless task completion
Let organizational change create opportunities
Nurture allies at work intentionally
Revel in success
Focus on the goals not the budget
Address the hardest leadership challenges first
Start your meetings by sharing something personal
