3 Teaching Strategies Showing Leaders How to Lead
Leadership is not always an easy task. In fact, teaching leaders and showing leaders how to lead calls for some teaching strategies.
Here are three basic ways to help a leader in the development of their leadership skills.
3 Teaching Strategies
1. Know Thyself
Before any leader can lead they must understand who they are, before they try to lead others. This understanding of one’s self will open their eyes to their strengths and weaknesses. This process will also help them in the recruitment of others who will complement their gifts.
2. Know Thy Followers
Some people are a challenge to lead. Many times they will bring all kinds of baggage to the learning experience. This “baggage” can often make it very difficult to lead a group. This is a hidden force that can hinder the direction and goals of the leader.
Knowing who you are trying to lead must follow right behind “knowing thyself.” If these two do not take place then this next step is worthless.
3. Know Thy Goals
Do you have the ability to make your vision clear to those you are leading? Do you know the goals? Having a stated vision and understanding for the direction of the group is essential. Your goals should be:
- Spelled out
- Very simple and
- To the point
The leader must be absolutely and simply clear about the goals and direction of the organization, business, charity group or church they lead.
Do you know yourself?
Do you know your followers”
Do you know the goals of your organization?
These three teaching strategies can help any leader to lead well.
