Leadership

Being able to organise and connect a group of people towards success.

Leadership is one of the most important aspects of completing work within a team. Leaders keep everyone on task and organised to reach their goal successfully. Through leadership, you show employers a range of abilities by making decisions for the team and negotiating different working styles.

Having experience in leadership shows that you are able to handle the task of making decisions. Since the leader is responsible for making sure the team finishes their work successfully, you will learn how to give tasks to certain people that show good skill in that area. This is a key skill in demonstrating your ability to work in different situations and with different people.

Leading also shows your ability to motivate a range of people towards a single task. Since working in teams involves a number of different ideas and work styles, as a leader you will be able to connect these together to improve the scope and quality of the work.

Leadership makes you capable of working with others effectively to make the most of their individual and collective abilities. Being able to guide a team towards a successful outcome is a skill employers greatly value, as it adds to the overall success of the workplace.

Examples of types of leadership are:

  • Organising and managing a team
  • Assigning tasks to others to make the most of their skills
  • Using and combining different ideas to create and improve an outcome
  • Building relationships within the team
  • Motivating the team towards the final goal
