Why “Leadership Skills—What New Supervisors and Managers Need to Know” Matters:

Leaders must be striving yet yielding. They need to strive for success, but they must also know when to go around a barrier rather than try to break through it.

Good leaders are both strong and flexible—just like the best athletes.

Leaders must know when to stand firm and when to bend.

Finally, sometimes leaders need to be controlling, and sometimes they must rely on influence. They have to be able to control situations and groups, but they also need to know how to influence, facilitate, and work from within the group—or even from behind the scenes.

Key Points:

  • The most effective supervisors and managers are always skillful leaders.
  • Leadership skills help you motivate and guide workers to perform at their best.
  • Good leaders develop loyal and productive employees who make important contributions to the organization.
  • You don’t have to be born a leader. Leadership skills can be learned and developed.
