Leading other leaders

Leading other leaders

Leaders are some of the most strong-willed individuals that you are going to encounter. They know what they want and how to achieve them. They have a crystal-clear vision of their goals and are relentless to reach those goals, writes James Short.

In short, they have a go-getter attitude. On top of that, they are very passionate and opinionated. Those traits, while awesome for leaders to have, also make them very challenging to manage.

If you are a business owner or in a leadership role, you might have already had the pleasure of leading other leaders. It’s a totally different yet rewarding experience.

Even if you are not yet managing leaders but are currently working with a team of high performers, this means that you are, in a way, leading future leaders. Remember, as a leader yourself, you are nurturing future leaders.

They might not have the official title, but that is not what a leader is all about. It’s about the attitude and the mindset. With that said, let’s get right into it. How do you lead other leaders? It’s a tall order but not at all impossible.

Coaching

You might be thinking that since you are now dealing with leaders that they already know what they’re doing. You already have the cream of the crop.

Coaching them is the least of your priorities, right? That is where you would be wrong. Leaders strive to better themselves. They have a constant drive to learn. Instead, coaching should be your number one priority. There is always room for improvement. Leadership is a complex role and leaders know that they need all the support and help they can get.

Transparency

Leaders are decision-makers. Be transparent and provide all the information that they need to make the best decisions possible. Don’t beat around the bush. You are working with people whose decisions could greatly impact the performance of the company, and as such, they need critical information to do their jobs properly. Let them work at their highest level by being transparent.

It’s all about being honest.

Be the example

You have to step up. As you work your way up the corporate ladder, the more people are watching you, especially other leaders. Is your example the one you want people to follow?

Remember, you are influencing individuals who are already leaders themselves. How can you influence them if your example as a leader is not up to their standards? Bring your A-game and bump it up a notch. People will follow if they see someone who they see as an improvement of their current selves.
