The workplace has become a hybrid space post COVID-19. However, it has also become tougher. As many lost their job with the advent of the pandemic, the workplace has become more competitive and cut-throat as people seek to retain their jobs. So what are some essential leadership skills you need in your arsenal to succeed? Let’s find out:
Delegating tasks is an important skill. This is because when people take on too many tasks themselves out of lack of trust for the other, they fail to deliver quality on any task. Quality over quantity in the workforce! Learn your team’s success and delegate tasks accordingly.
Learning how to give feedback is also an essential skill. Most people make their feedback too harsh which prevents others from learning their feedback. Instead, learn how to offer constructive feedback to help your teammates learn from your critique.
Giving good feedback also helps you develop another skill: that of being trustworthy. Being trustworthy is a skill— you need to develop those qualities that ultimately make you trustworthy in the face of others. For instance, you listen to their concern and you don’t make a mountain out of a molehill. You don’t spread that around. You help your teammates when they feel down.
This is a vital leadership skill to have in the workspace in 2022 which many discount. Being responsible doesn’t only mean giving your work on time. It means you accept your mistakes when you make one. It means you help others evaluate best solutions. Responsibility can also look like transparency!
Another skill that’s very much in demand due to the huge layoffs and changes in the structures of the companies is being flexible. People want to employ those who can pick up a little bit of weight outside their department too. It also looks like you knowing that your job will not look the same everyday. Some day it will look like being in the office and other days it might look like being on the road. You ned to make yourself comfortable with all versions!
