Nobody’s perfect, but there are some flaws that are sudden death to good leadership.
As you work through your strengths and weaknesses, capabilities and limits, make sure you’re steering clear of these dangerous habits:
1. Not setting the example.
When you set yourself apart and fail to “walk your talk,” people disconnect. Everything starts with you.
2. Not having a strong vision.
Without a vision you understand and can articulate clearly, you can’t impart a sense of purpose and direction to others.
3. Not building people skills.
It’s great to be smart, but if you can’t be honest and open, if you can’t control your emotions or connect with others, you leave a trail of doubt and stress behind you.
4. Not communicating.
If you can’t clearly say what you need from people and why you need it, you’re never going to get the results you want.
5. Delegating badly or not at all.
