5 actions every leader should practice

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers

Leading is not about personality—it’s about action, say leadership researchers James Kouzes and Barry Posner, who have analyzed the work of thousands of leadership experiences. Almost every case of leadership follows the same five practices:

1. Set an example. To demand commitment and high standards from your people, walk the talk.

2. Paint a picture. Give your team a vision of what they are working toward, and they will find the process more meaningful.

3. Keep innovating. Always be looking for new ways to improve, take risks and think creatively.

4. Build trust.
Provide an environment of collaboration and a consistent mind-set of “we” instead of “I.”

5. Celebrate achievement.
If someone does a good job, recognize the contribution. Genuine appreciation for good work gives people a sense of being valued and improves performance.
