ARE YOU AN EFFECTIVE LEADER? THINK ABOUT THIS QUESTION DURING OUR WORKSHOP.
Leadership is a Journey. Just as you bring unique experiences, you also bring your own leadership styles. While Administrators and Managers with a variety of leadership styles can be successful, we know that the peak of successful leadership involves the ability to shift focus from individuals to interactions—in principle, to build relationships. Effective leadership development encourages you to reveal on your own leadership style, to build upon personal strengths, and to discover leadership tools and resources that complement your personal style.

Open Feed Back: Find someone who doesn’t work for you and knows you well. This person needs to be around you often enough to see how you act and how others react to you. Sit down with them and then ask them: What do my intentions show? What do my actions say? Be open. Listen. Adjust

Pick the most important behaviors for change— those you believe will enhance your effectiveness as a leader—e.g., "become a more effective listener" or "make decisions in a timelier manner").
3. Periodically ask co-workers for suggestions on how you can do an even better job in your selected behaviors for change. 4. Listen to their ideas—don't promise to change everything—and make the changes that you believe will further increase your effectiveness. 5. Follow-up and measure change in your effectiveness over time. Are leaders born or made? If you are working with and through others to achieve objectives, you are already a leader. Can you become a more effective leader? Definitely.
