SKILLS 2 Leadership Skills When you think about a leader and leadership skills, you think of someone who possesses a number qualities. You would like to think that they are credible, enthusiastic, have good judgment, and are intelligent, a good people person, and a great speaker. Leadership skill is more than just acquiring traits it is about enveloping these as a person and carrying them through in every aspect of your life. Not only will this paper talk about leadership skills in general but it will also show how each individual brings their own personal traits to evolve into their own leadership skills. This allows the individual to become the leader that they want to be within whatever avenue they continue into and benefit their status in the company and future companies that they work with. Credibility is an important factor in being an effective leader. When one of your mail skills as a leader is to have your team follow you, your expertise and building their trust is important (Hughes, Ginnett & Curphy, 2009 p. 355). Credibility is the ability to engender the trust in others (Hughes, Ginnett & Curphy, 2009 p. 356). Not only is credibility important with the team you lead it is also important with having effective relationships with your direct supervisors. If the supervisors cannot trust your ability in leadership it will affect the company and trickle down amongst the team under you. Trust can be as simple as breaking down into clarifying and communicating your values and building relationships with others (Hughes, Ginnett & Curphy, 2009 p. 357). This can also undermine what skills you possess to become an effective leader. The organization you work for needs to know that you can handle situations effectively so that when you are faced with a good or bad situation neither will be handled inappropriately. This is positive growth for you as an employee as well as a solid leader within the company.
