2u1S saw many, many books publisheu about the
stiategies of an effective leauei, anu no uoubt 2u14
will biing even moie. As the 0S economy continues to
giow, anu with it Stait 0p cultuie, moie anu moie
people aie holuing the magnifying glass up to people
in leaueiship ioles, tiying to ueteimine how anu why
some succeeu while otheis fail.

Theie aie a few basics we all know. We all know an
effective leauei gives anu inspiies tiust anu iespect,
anu possesses emotional intelligence, self awaieness,
communication anu listening skills, anu the ability to to withstanu piessuie anu
hanule iesponsibilities. But what aie some othei qualities that can be useful. Beie,
on the biink of 2u14, let's take a moment to consiuei what oui New Yeai's
leaueiship iesolutions might be. Beie aie just a couple possibilities:

1. !"#$%"& ()*+,-. /,((,01 Nany leaueis tiy to mimic tactics useu by othei
leaueis, anu with staitlingly less success. While being inspiieu by the
examples set by mentois oi competitois is gieat, it's also impoitant to know
who you aie anu to stay tiue to youiself. Foiget how }ohn Q. Successman
inspiies tiust-how uo !"# inspiie tiust. You uon't have to ieinvent the
wheel, but oiiginality anu sinceiity go a long way.
2. 2(3* ,45%(,6 3"6 +(3* 70&,"(1 Things aie moving fastei anu fastei eveiy
uay, anu neithei you noi youi company can affoiu to live on the back foot.
This uoesn't mean anxiety foi anxiety's sake, but it uoes mean make suie
you'ie pushing youi employees to woik to theii full potential. Expect the
unexpecteu anu stiive to be two steps aheau at all times.
S. 8,5#&"%9, ()3( 5#--3/#03(%#" %+ :%"&1 When times aie tight anu companies
aie foiceu to cut coineis, teamwoik anu gioup bonuing aie often the fiist
thing to go, but this is wiong. Collaboiation-when each employee is willing to
go to bat foi the otheis, anu knows they'u uo the same-is the only path to
success.
4. ;,36 %" ()#7&)( 3+ $,-- 3+ 35(%#"1 Always be looking at numbeis anu
sussing out patteins in whatevei youi inuustiy is. Establish youi own
piocess that fits youi company's mission uniquely anu efficiently, anu always
be ieauy to auapt that piocess as things change. At the same time, involve
youiself moie in the uay to uay. Know as much as you can about eveiy single
iesponsibility you uelegate.
S. <#"=( /, +# 3.03%6 (# (3:, 0%+:+1 Bave infectious enthusiasm anu passion foi
exploiing new possibilities that no one has uieameu of befoie. While
employees shoulu always tiust theii cowoikeis anu supeiiois without
ieseivation, movement foiwaiu ieally only happens in situations wheie
inuiviuuals aie taken out of theii comfoit zone. Woik eveiy uay to finu this
balance of safety anu iisk.

Which of these uo you neeu to woik on the most in 2u14.
