So you think you’re a better leader than your manager?
It’s the debate that continues throughout offices and workplaces across the globe. Whether you’ve got a great manager or one that makes you cringe the minute they arrive in the mornings, most people think they can do a better job as one of the leaders in their organisation than their current boss.
What is it that you possess that makes you think you could be a better leader?
- Great communication skills?
- Previous leadership experience?
- A great rapport with staff members?
- The ability to be firm but fair and understand the needs of not only your employees but your organisation?
- The ability to inspire others?
