Leadership – It ain’t no Joke

Not everyone has the characteristics to be an effective leader. As a leader you must demonstrate that you have the ability to take the initiative to start a project or resolve a problem quickly by using your knowledge and experience.  You should know that dynamic leadership requires excellent communication skills because you want to be able to project your vision to the team in a concise and confident manner. Sound judgement determines the welfare of the group and the results of the task or project being worked on. The ability to have an unbiased opinion and the willingness to consider other ideas and alternatives. You must manage and resolve situations that may negatively impact scheduling and/or due dates of a project. As a leader you can save yourself a lot of stress and frustration by giving the team clear expectations for benchmarks to reach your objective in a timely manner.
