At Finnies we can advise on many aspects of running and growing a business. The following checklist will help you assess your leadership skills...
It is sometimes said that many people may become managers but few have what it takes to become a leader.
Management is about implementing, administering, and planning within predictable, controllable parameters.
Leadership is about looking beyond the predictable, identifying hidden opportunities (and dangers) - and inspiring people to reach out and meet them.
The last point is perhaps the most important. It is one thing to have vision; it is something else to persuade others to share it.
Do you have what it takes to be a leader? Answer the questions below to find out:
How many questions did you answer with True?
10 -12 - Great leadership material - you probably do not need telling what to do about it!
8 - 10 - Very promising, but take the time to think about how you could improve your people skills, and don't lose sight of your vision.
Less than 8 - Don't give up, you can still make it. Leaders are not born, they are made!
