Giving effective feedback

In order for a team to be effective, its leader must be able to comfortably offer feedback to team members. Feedback is information concerning the team’s behavior, attitude, relationships, and progress toward achieving objectives. Leaders that skillfully provide feedback help the team achieve its goals, build the team’s confidence and pride, and help them to succeed.

Goal setting and planning

Successful leaders focus on what they want to achieve. They know what they want, and they devise ways to get it. The secret to their success is their ability to set and achieve specific goals. The abilities to set clear goals and plan how to achieve them are important leadership skills. If you cannot identify and communicate goals and plan how to achieve them, you will have difficulty fulfilling other leadership responsibilities.
