Leading from the front.
As a leader, it’s essential you develop delegation skills. Ultimately, you are orchestrating your team’s performance so you need to have a higher-level perspective of the entire mission. This skill will aid you in ensuring better execution for the benefit of your team, clients, and following.
Although the dichotomy of leadership is that you also must never lose the willingness to lead from the front.
As there are many times you must roll up your sleeves and do the dirty work when needed. This too will give you the needed ground-level perspective and also garnish support from your team.
In summation, delegate early and often. But keep in mind that you should never ask anyone to do something you wouldn’t be willing to do yourself. This is effective leadership.
