Be professionally humble
As a manager, you may know exactly what you want your team to do, or how they want to behave and work throughout the day. The most effective way to help them along the path is to set the example on a daily basis. By demonstrating your own expectations, you are showing your team you respect them and you hold yourself to the same standards.
Think with a 360-degree mindset
Every strong leader has some idea about the changes to the industry and growing trends. It’s imperative you keep up-to-date on industry news so as you lead your team to success, you are leading them in the direction that will help you stay competitive in the marketplace.
Stay intellectually versatile
While it’s important to stay on top of business trends and stay focused on being the best leader for your team, you also need to balance your time with other interests.
