Leadership Tips: How Every Woman Can Be A Leader

By Nancy Katyal

Be it a Mother, Wife or Homemaker, life provides us with immense opportunities, at every point, to play the role of a leader. It falls to us to make the best use of these life situations, to display and develop our leadership qualities.

The leader is in every woman who supports, nurtures, guides, motivates and inspires people around her to achieve excellence in their work and endeavors.

Part of being a great leader is to have the right attitude, (rather than the experience) to be passionate about what you’re doing and have a real desire to learn and do things that you enjoy doing.

Leadership is not about comparing with or copying others, but it is to be knowledgeable and use the strengths of your personality to be the best.

Doing things then becomes enjoyable and filled with enthusiasm and creativity carried over to being the best leader.

With that perfect attitude, here are 3 golden tips to cultivate leadership –

  • 1. Grab the opportunity

There are so many occasions where you can play the role of a leader like family get-togethers, organizing an event in your society (on the eve of festivals etc), preparing your child to participate in a competition, managing finances in critical situation, taking an important decision, a pressing situation in the family etc. It is very important to grab the opportunity and take the lead.

  • 2. Prioritize the important over non important

A women has to multitask all the time. Thus it is critical to prioritize the important stuff by spending more time over it rather than distractions like repeat telecasts, too critical in discussing others, too much gossiping.

  • 3. Don’t fear failure

Most of us don’t take the lead fearing we might fail. But unless you don’t take the initiative you would not know how well you can do a particular task.

Practicing is the best form of learning. Look back at what are you best at today and you will be reminded of the past failures you overcame to achieve that.

Practicing these tips will help you transform as a leader who possess Courage and Patience to achieve your set goals.

So, dear Naaree, go ahead and ignite the LEADER in YOU by weaving together your leadership path with bright prospects for progress and success.
