Firsts. There are many “firsts” in our lives.

First date. First kiss. First concert. First car. First album or CD you bought and listened to. First time leaving home. First heartbreak. First child’s birth. Think about these “firsts.”

I bet you remember a lot about those or other important “firsts” in your life.

Here is another “first,” your promotion into your first managerial role, the first formal leadership position you have ever had.

All you have known in your career is work, work, work. And you were killing it.

And the reward for your hard work?

Your business is growing and you are employing a team of people.

You got a promotion at work and you are leading a team of people.

You are a full time boss, a leader for the first time in your life.

You are now leading a group of people for the first time in your career.

How do you lead? What is your leadership style? How do move from being a team-member doing your work to being a leader, responsible for others?

What is your leadership style? How do you lead during a crisis? How do you deal with poor-performing staff and how do you build a high-performing team?

Having that supervisor, manager, director or CEO title, or something similar, looks good on your business card, doesn’t it? You should feel proud, it Is a big deal. And as a new leader, you probably hope to be a great boss, a boss everyone wants to work for.

But what makes a great leader? What does that even look like?

“Good leaders have vision and inspire others to help them turn vision into reality. Great leaders create more leaders, not followers. Great leaders have vision, share vision, and inspire others to create their own.” ― Roy T. Bennett, The Light in the Heart
