Recently, on our LinkedIn page (give us a follow if you haven’t already), we asked for your best leadership tips (we’re still accepting tips, by the way!).

We wanted to highlight just a few of these leadership tips from our great audience! If you want to get the rest of the awesome tips, click to jump in on LinkedIn.

Treat direct reports as unique individuals; coaching is not a one-size-fits-all model. You have to accommodate their working style, career goals, and respect the type of relationship they want to have with work.

Why we love it

Knowing your people is such a pivotal part of leadership: the more you know them, including how they want to be coached and communicated with, the more effective you will be as a leader.

The most powerful leadership tool you have is your own personal example.

What you do and how you treat people sets the pivotal tone for your organizational culture.

You can only lead as well as you lead yourself!

Babette Bensousan, Life, Leadership and Business Coach, Mindshifts

Why we love it

If you cannot lead yourself, how will you ever inspire others to follow you? It’s thought-provoking, isn’t it?

Why we love it

This is 100% the ethos of Enable Leaders. As we share on our About Us page, “This is not just about CEOs and C-Suite: this is about equipping everyone in our organizations to lead themselves and others more effectively.”

If you strive to be authentic versus right in your leadership, you’ll be more effective as a leader.

Keith Dunnell, Regional VP, Salesforce

Why we love it

Being authentic and being okay with not being right 100% of the time is the right attitude to take. Learn from others, approach things with curiosity and asking, “What if?” can be some powerful actions and values to exhibit.

Those are just a FEW of gems over on LinkedIn. Be sure to check out the post and give us your best leadership tip too!
