What are the four traits of a successful change leader? What are the seven phrases you’ll never hear come out of a successful leader’s mouth? What are the nine irrevocable office sins?
Last week Becker’s Hospital Review published a round-up of ten articles on leadership—all providing insights and interesting angles on how to succeed at the top of your organization. Here’s a quick rundown on some of the advice:
>> Show that you are open-minded and can collaborate across different levels of the organization.
>> Surround yourself with people who have different backgrounds and then ask questions fearlessly.
>> Don’t be afraid to hire people who are smarter than you.
>> Learn to prioritize critical responsibilities ahead of time-consuming activities that can be delegated or even eliminated.
>> Keep looking to the future and don’t be afraid to make bold decisions.
>> In-person meetings may be time consuming, but they reduce the chance for miscommunication.
>> Showing compassion instead of competitiveness fosters the collaboration needed for effective problem solving and organizational success.
What are the nine irrevocable office sins? telling lies; gossiping; complaining about your job; emotional hijacking; accepting credit for another person’s work; bragging; betraying a colleague; ruining relationships; and bringing a stinky lunch.
