How to be a successful leader

Want to improve your leadership skills? Here are 5 qualities you need to unite, motivate and inspire your team.


Verbal and written communication is key to being a successful leader. After all, an important part of inspiring action is getting people to listen to what you have to say!


Don’t let your words be empty rhetoric – make sure you have a plan and a clear end goal. All good leaders have the ability to see the bigger picture and can share their vision for the future in a compelling and motivational manner.

Emotional intelligence

If you are going to inspire others, then you need to connect with them in one way or another. Having the emotional intelligence to listen to and emphasise with others shows that you are a good leader who doesn’t just take their own feelings into consideration when making decisions.

Problem-solving skills 

Making positive change always comes with hurdles along the way. People who make effective leaders are those who are able to think strategically and make decisions that align with the wider company and its goals.


Be optimistic! If you express doubt about a project or idea then people will be uncertain whether or not to trust your decisions as a leader. Spark excitement in meetings and lead with passion! Your team will mirror this positive energy and feel more motivated to get the job done. If you don’t feel any of these emotions whilst at work, then it might be time for a career change
