Then let’s do this!

#1 Take responsibility

Prove that you can be trusted to live up to your obligations. Develop a reputation for completing assignments and meeting deadlines. Everyone respects having a reputation for being responsible.

#2 Document your accomplishments

Make it a habit to write down your ideas and achievements. Looking over your victories will boost your confidence. Even the missteps will suggest adjustments you can make to do better next time.

#3 Express enthusiasm

Attitude is an important part of leadership. Speak kindly to your coworkers and care about their welfare. Find gratification in your work and how it serves the organization.

#4 Take initiative

Be willing to go the extra mile. Volunteer for tasks that fall outside of your job description even if they’re less than glamorous. Pitch in when other team members need a hand.

#5 Share feedback

Thank people for commenting on your performance and recommending steps you can take to further your professional growth. Offer constructive and tactful criticism that enables others to do the same. The more we know, the more we grow.

#6 Give generously

Let your colleagues know that they can count on you when they need your time and expertise. Give it generously. Strive to be a valuable team member. Keep an eye out for anyone who’s struggling so you can create mutually beneficial relationships.

You can position yourself as the kind of leader other employees will want to follow. Your skills are a valuable resource that can help you to develop your talents and inspire others. As your skills increase, so will your influence.

Are you using your skills to position yourself as a leader?
