The Great Leap: How to Level Up from Boss to Leader

Your employees call you their boss—but do they regard and respect you as a leader? Here are five things to avoid and five more things to practice on your journey to becoming an effective leader to your team.

Don’t: Just give orders.
Do: Show them how to do it.

Many bosses—even entire companies—attempt to instill values that they don’t actually practice. Being an effective leader is being your employees by example so they will want to emulate you.

Don’t: Take all the credit.
Do: Recognize your team’s contribution.

Taking all the credit for a job well done can alienate your employees who put in so much of their time and effort to help you achieve your company’s goals. To be a leader, you must be willing take a step back and let your colleagues shine. This shows your employees that you appreciate their work, and motivates them to perform even better the next time around.

Do: Cultivate courage and enthusiasm.

No matter how difficult things may be, leaders have a responsibility to keep their employees’ morale at a constant high.
