Four Key Competencies

There are four core key competencies for supervisors, middle managers, senior managers, and top executives. They are: 

  1. Inspires and motivates others

  2. Displays high integrity and honesty

  3. Solves problems and analyzes issues

  4. Drives for results

Think about your life. Did you have a boss that uplifted you, inspired you and motivated you? Or did they do just the opposite? Did they hold true to their word and live in a place of honesty? Were they there to help you solve problems or did they happen to, or seem to, make more issues? Did they encourage you to find results and help you get there? That is the kind of leadership we all want and need. 

Someone who made you better by being around them. 

Think back to your leaders in your life. You will know for sure if they had those 4 characteristics.

So how do you become a leader like this? 

  • Encourage others

  • Speak life into them 

  • Bring up things that will help them reach their goals but allow them to find the answer on their own

  • Ask them questions about how it is going

  • Do what you say you will do even when it is hard to keep your word

  • Always be honest

  • Be a problem solver not a problem giver

  • Allow other to share their opinion

  • Ask if they are open to feedback

  • Collect data, fact and figures before making any rash decisions

  • Know the goals

  • Identify the steps to get there

  • Measure often

  • Plan a celebration for the win

  • Include others by giving praise and recognition

  • Give verbal praise whenever possible

You can practice their leadership traits at work and at home. Try it with you family and see what happens. You might find a happier home as well as a booming business. Let me know how it goes.
