You can be a leader even if you are not officially appointed or served as a director. In everyday life, at school, or at work, leaders are people who are able to provide examples, guidance, and direction. The true leader is determined by his character and actions, not by his position. In order to be the best leader, try to improve your lead management, skills, balance authority, and compassion, and be able to prove to the team that you are a trustworthy leader.
Be confident even though there are things you don’t know. Try to maintain good posture, make eye contact while communicating, and use body language when you want to emphasize what’s important. Show confidence and rely on the ability to lead teams to achieve common goals. If you have not been able to answer a question, say honestly without seeming nervous or feeling inferior.
Imagine the impression captured by team members if you say, “I don’t know” while looking down and seeming nervous. Now, compare with the impression that appears when you say, “I don’t know the answer, but I will look for information about this and answer your question” while standing up straight and making eye contact with the person who asked the question. Ignorance does not mean weakness. Leaders who are not confident and do not want to admit mistakes are not good leaders. Remember that self-confidence and arrogance are two very different things. Acknowledge honestly if you don’t know and never feel greater than others.
Try to expand your knowledge in the field you are engaged in. Whatever your position, the sales team manager or headmaster, take advantage of every opportunity to increase knowledge. A good understanding of the subject being discussed makes you more confident and more trusted by team members. Being someone who knows everything is impossible, but they will doubt your ability if you always get an “I don’t know” answer to every question they ask. Things will get worse if you don’t know the right answer, but try to answer by giving the wrong information. This makes team members not trust you. For example, before organizing charity activities at schools to raise funds, read the guidelines for organizing events on the website.
