Article Body:
A mark of a good leader is to provide constant motivation to his team to maintain an excellence and quality
in results. A good leader is always looking for ways to improve production and standards. Here are six skills
you can develop in working to attain quality in the team.


1.Observation


This is an important aspect that often gets neglected due the demands on a leader’s time and schedule.
Observation and regular visits to the work environment needs to be scheduled into the calendar. Observing
employees work procedures and the work flow is foundational to implementing adjustments to improve
results. To have credibility, a leader needs to be seen and be known to be up to date with what is happening
in the work place.


2.Monitor Employee Performance


Employee performance needs to be monitored in mutually accepted ways. Policies and procedures need to
be clear. Conferencing should be on a regular basis and not just when there is a problem. Assessments and
evaluations should not be merely all formality or paperwork to be done. Individual and group conferencing
should be undertaken with the expectation of on going professional development. There should be frequent
encouragement and clear criteria for on going goals both for the group and individual.


3.Implementation of Professional Development Programs


A good leader evaluates weaknesses and provides training and development strategies to strengthen the
weaker skills in the team.
4.Demonstrates Working Knowledge and Expertise


Good leadership comes from a place of strong knowledge and experience of the production and process
leading to results. If a leader does not posses all the expertise and knowledge personally he should then hold
regular consultations with experts. This is important in order to maintain an accurate and informed overall
picture.


5.Good Decision Making


Good leadership is characterized by the ability to make good decisions. A leader considers all the different
factors before making a decision. A clear decision creates confidence in the leadership.


6.Ability to Conduct and Evaluate Research


On going review and research is vital in order to keep on the cutting edge in business. While managing the
present to ensure on going excellence in performance and product, a good leader is also able to look towards
the future. Conducting and evaluating research is an important way of planning and being prepared for the
future.


Excellent leadership is always pro active rather than reactive. By developing these six managerial skills a
good leader is on the journey to becoming a great leader.
