5 Ideas To Help You Grow Your Leadership Skills

1)  Read Books- This is one of the easiest and most cost efficient ways to increase you knowledge of any subject.

2)  Go to conferences and training seminars- be careful in your selection process.  Also, think about going with others.  It can be very beneficial to talk through discussion points with others while things are still fresh in your mind.

3)  Seek out a coach or mentor in your area of expertise

4)  Take leaders to lunch- find people that are successful and ask them if you can have an hour of their time over lunch.  Remember that you are paying for lunch.  Also remember that good leaders do not like to have their time wasted.  Have several questions prepared before hand for them to answer.

5)  Pray for your leaders and look for ways to bless them.  This is something that I think many of us often overlook.  We value what our leaders can give us so we are always looking to get something from them.  An appreciated and respected leader will be more willing to give more back.


These were some ideas that I wrote down from a conference I was recently a part of.  The speakers name was Bill. Sorry that’s all I had in my notes.
