These are 5 important ways derived from successful agile leaders of top corporate in the world.
Know that you are enough
An Agile Leader knows that they have everything already within their means to be successful. They know that the skills they have will allow them to learn the next skill; that they can learn off and rely on the support of the people around them. An Agile Leader does not sacrifice opportunity in the present for perfection in the future. An Agile Leader is comfortable with who they are and as such are centred, stable and have an air of confidence.
An Agile Leader takes full responsibility for their situation. They respond as if every good or bad thing that comes their way has a benefit to them. If it’s meeting an interesting person at a networking meeting, maybe there is an opportunity to collaborate, if they are faced with a significant challenge they know that there is likely something new to learn that will make them better prepared in the future.
An Agile Leader treats every eventuality as a learning opportunity. They constantly measure and monitor their ability to get what they want and if progress is too slow they make changes to what they do – mostly fine tuning but without discounting the prospect of a major overhaul.
Wholeheartedly practice ‘Givers gain’
An Agile Leader knows that generosity with knowledge, ideas and time will create a foundation for success through the trust that it shows and the strength of relationships that it builds.
Take time to understand people
At the end of the day pretty much everything relies on people. An Agile Leader learns people skills and takes time to understand what really matters to people. They look beyond the behaviour of others and get to the intention. They assist in the development of strong relationships by helping people overcome conflict and develop trust and confidence in each other.
