I enjoy reading books and articles about leadership and management styles. I find the stories behind leadership lessons captivating, and it's remarkable to me how leadership patterns span across industries, from sports (e.g., "The Score Takes Care of Itself") to military (e.g., "Extreme Ownership").
Additionally, I appreciate engaging in conversations with leaders based in Greece who successfully guide teams, businesses, and even volunteer organizations.
The one style that I find most compelling, and of which I am the biggest advocate, is the following:
Lead by example.
Do you want a data-driven team? Become the most data-driven professional on the team.
Do you want a disciplined team? Become the most disciplined professional.
Do you want your team to thrive? You should raise the bar yourself first.
Do you want a team of professionals that don’t seek excuses and drama? Avoid excuses and drama yourself first.
This is a simple and self-explanatory style. Become the compass that points in the direction you believe in and the rest of the team will follow.
Construct a system based on the principles that you believe matter to you, your team, and the business, and stubbornly follow to it. Others will follow, and those who don’t want to follow will become obsolete due to the system and the environment that the rest of the team will cultivate.
