Being an effective leader is an incredible challenge. It requires tremendous integrity – not to mention continuous learning and growth. As John F. Kennedy once said, “Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.” With that in mind, these are the qualities we highlight in the NYC Marketing leadership development program.
Great leaders are also great communicators. They are open with their expectations and generous with both praise and feedback. They are available to answer questions and share knowledge as needed. Just as importantly, effective leaders are attentive listeners. They inquire about the goals and interests of their people, so they can help everyone advance. They are open to feedback from others as well.
Trust is a core NYC Marketing value. Our leaders establish an atmosphere of trust through their commitment to transparency. They are clear about the goals and the trajectory of the company. These individuals are also committed to ensuring that our needs and personal goals are met. Such clear displays of dedication make it easy for us to trust them.
The best leaders also demonstrate strong character. One of the ways they do so is by acknowledging their mistakes and areas of needed improvement. They realize that they don’t know it all, and are humble enough to consult others for the benefit of the team.
We all try to improve these qualities within ourselves on a daily basis. Like NYC Marketing on [Facebook] for more insight into our professional advancement.
