Leadership skills are highly sought after by employers, yet most organizations provide little or no formal training in how to be a transformational leader in their organization. With promotion comes new duties and responsibilities related to tasks and team building. Most newly promoted individuals receive training in their new tasks, but sadly not on how to inspire their team to their fullest potential.
The question of what makes a good leader is widely debated. There is no one way that will work in every situation in every organization. The ability to lead effectively relies on a number of key skills and characteristics. By learning what your leadership strengths are and what you need to work on, you will develop into the leader you want to be—decisive, confident, respected, trusted and admired.
