Mistakes Every Leader Makes!

Leadership Instincts

Nobody is perfect and we all agree that "to err is human". Yet, a mistake made by a leader is ten times worse than that by the teammate. Here are some of the mistakes that are commonly made by leaders.

*Not standing up for the team:

A leader should stand up for the team, no matter how dreadful the situation be.

*Not knowing how to say "No":

Democracy is good. But, "too much of anything" will spoil the charm.  A leader should know where and when to say 'No'. 

*Surprise meetings:

Meetings called up without a proper agenda will be nothing but a complete wastage of time.

*No proper monitoring:

Without proper monitoring, all the planned projects will remain in incubators. A good leader is a good team manager.

*Not accepting the change:

A good leader should be flexible.

*Not accepting the mistake:

A leader should be always ready t accept his mistakes. But should be clever enough not to make the same mistake again.
