As a leader, your success is not solely dependent on your own results. It is also a reflection of the quality of work produced by the people you are leading. This is why it is crucial that you not only hone your skills as an individual worker but learn how to make an impact on your team and be able to motivate each member as well.

Leadership at a glance

Leadership is more than just leading people. It’s about using a wide variety of skill sets.


Skill set #1 - A leader needs to know how to train and instruct their followers.


Training is the ability of the instructor to assist their students to achieve an objective, goal or outcome. The difference between training and instructing is in how they are evaluated. When you train someone, they are evaluated using hands-on techniques. When you instruct someone, they are evaluated using a written test.


Skill set #2 – A leader needs to learn how to apply Purpose, Direction and Motivation statements into their training and in their communication efforts to the student.


a) The Purpose statement is a brief reason the training is being conducted. It doesn’t need to relate to training. It can relate to anything that requires the student's attention for the completion of a task, an objective, or a goal.

b) The Direction statement incorporates the instructions of how you plan to carry out your training. It’s a detailed plan of action that summarizes what you will be trained on.

c) The Motivation statement contains the motivating factor that will keep your students attentive to your training. It contains the reason why your training is important.


Skill set #3 – A leader needs to know how to communicate effectively, solve problems, make decisions, and plan.


Effective communications is the key to obtaining the results you desire. However, there are barriers to communication that interfere with our attempts to communicate effectively. Some of these barriers include, noise, distance, walls, and psychological barriers such as personal bias, indignation, racial and religious reasons, plus many more.


Skill set #4 – A leaders needs to go the extra mile and be willing to improve their leadership abilities.


Going the extra mile means spending time with your students making sure they are properly trained, even if you have to train them after normal business hours. In addition, a leader needs to always be willing to improve on their leadership abilities. The day you and I fail to improve our leadership abilities, is the day our leadership dies.
