Take off your armor to improve your leadership skills


  1. Reflect on whether you are practicing armored leadership.
    A few traits of an armored leadership style are: weaponizing fear and uncertainty, zigzagging and avoiding, leading for compliance and control, numbing yourself, driving perfectionism, and fostering fear of failure. 
  2. Take off the armor that is limiting you. 
    Lead with emotions and feelings without creating fear in others or being limited yourself by the fear of failure. 
  3. Amend your leadership style where needed.
    For example, you could start practicing gratitude by celebrating milestones and victories at the workplace. 
  4. Be a learner.
    Making small changes like learning from your employees instead of always just instructing them will change your leadership style positively. Be open to the idea of learning from and with others.
