Abbey explains what it means to display leadership at work.

What does it mean to be a leader at work?

  • Being a leader is not just about how senior or important you are. You can show leadership no matter what your role is in a company
  • Leadership really is about setting goals and being clear to others about what you need from them
  • Be a good team worker: being a leader doesn't mean you're removed from the people you work with. Get to know them well, so you can understand how to best harness their skills
  • And to help your team when they need you, you have to improve your own skills. So keep learning and developing yourself
  • Most importantly, treat people the way you like to be treated, because people will work harder for a leader that they respect.
