The invite only conference was held on August 13th. The main focus for the one-day event was leadership. Here, Alba International have outlined the 5 top tips to excel in a leadership role.
1. Find a mentor
Success is rarely a solo effort. The best leaders understand that they need help and by having a mentor they know exactly who and where to turn to. No one can know everything and in business the most successful people have a mentor they can turn to for advice when things get tough.
2. Never stop improving
The famous quote by Helen Hayes, “The expert at anything was once a beginner” describes it perfectly. In order to become an expert at something it requires dedication and commitment to continue to learn, grow and develop. Great leaders are constantly learning and always trying to improve themselves.
3. Lead by example
At Alba International their business philosophy is ‘show, not tell.’ The best leaders need to lead by example and show how it’s done. Leaders should set the tone for their team to follow.
The best leaders don’t just talk, they listen. They take the time to listen to how their team is feeling and take on board any ideas they may have, demonstrating that they are part of the company and that their opinion is valued.
At Alba International they have a recognition and reward culture. They understand the importance of making sure everyone they work with feels valued and is rewarded for their efforts. If a leader publicly recognises the efforts of their team then it will build confidence and encourage the continuation of a high performance level.
