In almost all offices nowadays, workers and rank and file employees may seem struggling on how to develop leadership qualities. After all, they take care of the tedious details of work such as customer service, production and service delivery. All their energies tend to be dedicated to the business processes they are tasked to oversee.

However, leadership is very important in all aspects of the business. Whether it is in the customer service department, production teams, and other departments of the business, leadership is valuable. In recent years, managers have realised the importance of working as a team, rather than working individually on certain tasks or projects. That’s because of the need to deliver beyond the capabilities of individuals. Hence, leadership has become more important.

If you want to develop leadership qualities, you need to establish relation among your employees, and your relationship with them. Do some small talk and meaningful conversations with your team mates. Ask them their deepest desires and their concerns in their work and in their lives. This way, you can understand them and their motivations better.

If you want to learn leadership, there is no better place to learn than in the military. There, you’ll be able to learn how to balance between being a good leader and being a jerk by observing how military leaders perform their duties.
