Final Words on Strategy

Layne McDonald. Ph.D.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit. - Aristotle 

Thank you for reading Follow the Leader: 5 Must-Have Leadership Skills ! I hope you have found the information in this special report to be enlightening, helpful, and inspiring.

As a reminder, here are core concepts to remember as you work to build your leadership skills:

Practice communication always and be willing to learn from your mistakes. Remember that all communication should be done with clarity, detail, and honesty.

Improve your adaptability by reminding yourself that you can manage disappointment and by learning to make contingency plans.

Build your team by recognizing the danger of trying to do everything yourself and choosing team members with the skills and experience you lack.

Learn how to think strategically by outlining your goals and showing the practical steps you need to take to achieve them.

Delegate skills by assigning tasks that do not require your attention to the team members best suited to do them.

So-called experts treat leadership like it is a riddle to be solved. I do not think of it that way. It is a skill – or a set of skills – that anybody can buy if they are willing to do the work.

The five core skills described in this book can be the basis of outstanding leadership. Believe you can be a great leader – and you should too!

Good luck!
