Every Individual has a unique approach to leading and managing others. Leadership is about more than credentials, titles, or seniority. So what does a leader look like? What are the specific skills that help them motivate and guide others toward the execution of a common vision?
The PXT Select™ Leadership Report illustrates six essential leadership capabilities for today’s workplace, along with actionable candidate data to help organizations interview, hire, and develop the right leaders for the right jobs.
Six Essential Leadership Skills
Creating a Vision
Leaders who excel at creating a vision vividly imagine new ideas, directions, and innovations for the future. They think big and redefine the boundaries and what’s possible for their team, organization, and industry.
Developing strategies is all about transforming goals and ideas into action plans that are both innovative and achievable. To do this, leader’s must understand their organization’s unique resources and challenges, and, when necessary, use this knowledge to be agents of change.
Leaders who ensure results implement organizational priorities and make sure they get carried out accurately and efficiently. They set the pace of work and establish expectations of quality throughout their teams.
Creating clarity and unity around ideas is the core of inspiring people. Effective leaders communicate with contagious enthusiasm for new endeavors, and they convince peers, superiors and subordinates of the merits of their cause or line of reasoning.
By being approachable, leaders empower their team members to come forward to seek clarification, address concerns, and present ideas. They are open to feedback and build morale by making others feel heard.
Effective leaders know that mentoring others is an investment in the future of the organization. They help team members develop the skills, connections, and confidence to do their jobs more effectively, growing the next generation of leaders in the process.
