#AcademicTwitter #MedTwitter and #SciTwitter: What makes a good leader?

My thoughts ⬇️
Simply put, a good leader is a good communicator. One cannot lead if they do not effectively communicate with a team.
A good leader is consistent and avoids micromanaging a team and implementing a seagull management style (flying in, squawking, and leaving a mess).
A good leader recognizes the strengths of each team member. They know how to create an environment that supports skill set growth of each person while maintaining the productivity of the team.
A good leader is open to new approaches and ideas. They are not threaded by innovation.
A good leader advocates for faculty and staff. This person will not stand in the way of a person’s upward mobility and advancement.
A good leader knows how to deliver bad news. They do not avoid these conversations even when they are difficult on all parties. The understand that delaying discussions does not make them disappear.
In order to be a good leader, people need to be provided the opportunity to lead and fail early in their career. Controlled failure with guidance during school or early career can be a useful experience.
