4 Critical Skills for Leading People

4 Critical Skills for Leading People – 4 min

I’ve been wanting to share these four foundational people leadership skills for quite a while now. In over a decade of working with thousands of leaders, I estimate that 80% of all people leadership challenges come down to one of these 4 skills:

  1. Assume Positive Intent
  2. Set Clear Expectations
  3. Give Quality Feedback
  4. Show Appreciation

Master these skills, and leading people will be a rewarding experience – for you and the ones you’re privileged to lead.
