The Practitioner Leader


Being a leader means taking risks. Nobody leads if they sit in their office reviewing files and talking to their staff on the phone.

No, true leaders are people who are followed.

Who is followed? The leader that inspires you to grow and be fulfilled; the individual that people listen to and who is able to motivate change; the manager that listens to you more than he talks to you; the one that other leaders and people you respect look up to.

Any practitioner, whether staff or management, can be a leader.

But it takes being willing to take some risks.

Acknowledge what you don’t know and find ways to learn what you need to know.

Keep your mouth shut when you need to listen (which is the majority of the time) and only open it when you have something useful to say.

It means being willing to share your professional opinion based on business grounds without hiding behind professional standards or firm policies.

It means being willing to share both the bad and the good news, even when that will be unpopular or meet resistance from executives. (Why are we so reluctant to say things are done well?)

Everybody should be able to see the elephant in the room after we have given our report.

It means taking a new approach when that is better than what is “customary”, and showing the path to others.

Leaders don’t keep knowledge to themselves. They are open and willing, without bragging, to share and enable the whole team to grow.

A leader puts the priorities of others alongside or even ahead of others. Your problem is their problem.

Leaders not only care about others but are known to care.

Are you a leader? Do you know how to improve your leadership skills?
