Developing your leadership style

As a CENTURY 21 Principal, the leadership you provide to your sales team, property managers and support staff is essential to the success of your Franchise. The style of leadership you provide will have a clear impact on the way your franchise operates, however, many Principals lack the time to step back and examine their individual style.

In order to assist you with developing your leadership style in a limited time frame, we’ve put together four, easy to remember, D’s of leadership.

1. Dreaming: leaders need to be able to dream of a higher vision, before leading the team towards it. A leader serves to remind the team of how they fit into the bigger picture and larger goals of the organisation;

2. Decisiveness: a leader who lacks the ability to decisively make decisions can paralyse their entire business through inaction;

3. Drive: great leaders lead by example and show the entire team their drive, not necessarily by slaving away for hours at their desk, but by clearly demonstrating how every action they take builds the business;

4. Detailed: leaders need to know when to pay attention to the detail, and more importantly, when not to. It’s very easy to become a micro-manager, and monitor the tiny details of your employees work and great leaders know when to give their staff autonomy and trust them to deliver.
