Australian Interactive Marketing highlights three principles to implement to become a better leader
Brisbane based outsourced sales and marketing firm, Australian Interactive Marketing contends that the most successful entrepreneurs are phenomenal leaders. The firm has highlighted three principles to implement to become a better leader.
If you take a look at some of the worlds most prominent leaders of large brands such as Steve Jobs and Jeff Bezos you will find one common denominator: Their ability to lead and inspire comes from their influence. It is not always a case of what you do or says that will get others to trust your vision or respect you as a person – it can come down to simply just who you are.
These exceptional leaders have a work ethic that is unparalleled in your average run of the mill leader. They have a determination to overcome any roadblock, yet they have a clear understanding that they must communicate effectively with their team like human beings and without the ability to communicate, it’s going to be an uphill battle to get the team on your side.
As such, Australian Interactive Marketing has highlighted their top three tips in order to become a better leader.

Starting your own business can be stressful and overwhelming. As a business owner/entrepreneur, you often have to assume many different roles simultaneously. Many people can end up running a totalitarian regime within their firm as the stress mounts up and let their title cloud their better judgment. Try and refrain from letting that be the case and instead, communicate as you would in a normal conversation, it’s crucial to talk but far more important to listen.
Learn to be straightforward:
Many of us will have had a boss somewhere down the line that was unpredictable; meaning you never knew what their reaction would be. This causes friction within the team, as they won’t feel they can come to you with issues. You need to be straightforward and approachable 100 percent of the time.
Give your team a voice:
It’s so important that you make a habit of allowing your team to raise concerns and speak up whenever possible. Allowing time for discussion is important. At the end of the day you want your team to be the happiest they can be, performance will improve, and you’re more likely to find a more efficient workforce.
The best leaders of today have a strong vision, but they also empower their team to have a say, allowing contribution to their own vision. By providing them with a platform to have a voice, you are empowering them to the overall growth and well being of your company
