The Principles of Leadership

The Principles of Leadership

Posted in Business Strategy, Opinion by Gareth on April 12, 2015

Last week I attended a unique and interesting seminar centred around leadership. The event was conducted by a senior Australian military instructor and he asked us all to self rate our leadership skills against the Principles of Leadership.

The leadership test is quite simple and applies to all aspects of life but certain principles may connect with you more than others depending on if you’re a manager or a leader. According to the military, a leader is someone who makes decisions and focuses on the future and a manager husbands resources and deals with the now.

Simply choose the top three that apply to you. The militarys principles of leadership are at the bottom of the page.

  1. Be proficient.
  2. Know yourself and seek self-improvement.
  3. Seek and accept responsibility.
  4. Lead by example.
  5. Provide direction.
  6. Know are care for your subordinates.
  7. Develop the potential of your subordinates.
  8. Make sound and timely decisions.
  9. Build the team and challenge its abilities.
  10. Keep your team informed.

The militarys top three leaderships principles are

  1. Lead by example,
  2. Make sound and timely decisions, and
  3. Know and care for your subordinates.

Which are you and what of the above list do you prioritise in your daily activities?
