Strong leadership is more crucial than ever in this fast-paced and technology-driven world. So, what makes you a great leader? In this video at Harvard Business Review, Linda A. Hill explains what qualities and skills the best leaders must possess. According to Hill, a great leader must articulate a clear vision and focus. Once a leader thoroughly communicates the vision, actions and the desired results will naturally evolve without coercion or force. Another characteristic of a great leader is being receptive to new ideas. Good pacemakers are approachable, and they welcome opinions different from their employees. “Leadership today is less about getting people to follow you. Instead, leading innovation is about getting them to co-create the future with you,” says Hill. Do you want to proactively work on developing your leadership characteristics and skills?
