Leadership ability is the lid that determines your effectiveness as a leader. To get more effective as a leader you need to continually work on improving your leadership abilities. Some things you can do:
1. Invest in yourself. Make training and learning a lifestyle.
2. Get out of your comfort zone and do something beyond yourself. We have a way of growing when we get in over our head.
3. Take time to reflect on your experiences. There is always something to learn when we evaluate our experiences. Make reflection a habit.
4. Get a mentor or a coach. Sometimes we get in our own way and need another person to help us find our path.
Bottom line: Find your leadership lid and be intentional about growing your abilities.
