important if you are in charge of one person or 500 people. Good
communication, people skills and many other things are required of great
leaders. If you do not have these skills already, it is time to learn.
Use the tips below to become a more effective leader to your team. Even
if you are not the best at everything you do, you should never let
people know that. Being a leader is about accepting the negative things
about yourself, but not allowing them to stop you from doing your best.
This pertains to all points in your life where you may be lacking. Be
clear with possible issues whenever you can. It was common to hide any
issues before, but great leaders don’t do that any more. Why? The world

big. A bagel breakfast or gift certificates for a team work quite well.

manage, lead. There’s a big difference between a manager and a leader.
Managers maximize productivity and work on the day to day. Leaders
inspire and raise the company up with vision. It’s big picture stuff. If
you spend too much time managing, you’ll never be able to show yourself
as a leader to your company. Synergy is an important term for a leader.
Understand what your goals are. As well, take account of your business
goals. Your goals should align well and possibly overlap. Work on your
business and personal goals simultaneously. If you aren’t able to, it
