Leadership Expertise – Quick Tips for Building it

Leadership expertise tipsTo follow from our recent article on Leadership Styles and Being an Expert I thought I might share with you some Quick Tips for building your leadership expertise.

There really are only a few ways to build expertise. If you do need to rapidly build your leadership expertise here is how to do it:

  • Ask lots of questions. Don’t be afraid to ask others who know. Most people are more than willing to share their information if you ask for their help and advice.
  • Ask someone who already knows. Find a mentor or attend a course. Sign up for one of my seminars or courses, or contact us for details of individual or group coaching programs.
  • Make lots of mistakes. This is called gaining experience. It may be a painful, high-risk way to learn, but it is very effective if you reflect on the lessons you gain from your experience – and a great way to develop your leadership expertise.
  • Read lots of books. This is a much less painful way to learn from other people’s mistakes than making them yourself! Have a look at just some of the books in the Bookroom.

If you are doing lots of these four things regularly, your personal leadership expertise will develop much more quickly than otherwise.
