Are You Recognized as a Leader?

Being recognized as a leader doesn’t just happen for most people.

If you’re ready to step up to a leadership role, here are some tips to make the transition easier.jet medium

  • Talk to your manager about your desire to take on more leadership responsibility. Show that you have the big picture in mind and are eager to increase your contributions to organizational success.
  • Discuss your career goals and why increased responsibility supports these goals. Be assertive about asking for additional training opportunities that strengthen your leadership skills.
  • Grow your influence. When you have influence, you get people to support you without having to use force, power, or authority. Influential people change how others think and what they do by forging an emotional connection with them.

  • Grow your network. The more people you know and who know you, the more opportunities you have to demonstrate your leadership ability. The relationships you develop with those inside your organization and within your field of expertise can open doors to information, lead to career advancement, and enhance your reputation.
