 Avant’s Kristin Ihle Helledy Explains How to Be a Great Leader

When you have a group of people working together, most of them are probably not going to get along. Most people struggle with that aspect of working with other people. Fortunately, it’s not a big deal most of the time, and everyone gets along just fine. For example, if you work in a café, you probably don’t care if the barista likes you or not. However, if you’re part of a team that has to work together for a long period, then it’s important that you have a leader that everyone can look up to. Being a leader can be a tough job, but it doesn’t have to be if you know how to be a good one. Take, for example, the way that Kristin Ihle Helledy from Avant shows that she is a good leader by following these tips.

  1. Good Leaders Can Learn from Anyone

A good leader can learn from anyone. A good leader can take the best parts of what other people do and make them their own. A good leader can see the best in others and use it. This way, they aren’t just copying someone else’s work, but they are using the things they learned from others to create something new. Kristin Ihle Helledy, a fellow Avant member, recently wrote a great article that goes over this concept. You can read more about it here.

  1. Why the Best Leaders Scale the Lattice’ Rather Than Climb the Ladder

Sometimes, when you’re a leader, you might be so focused on following the rules and doing what everyone else is doing that you forget other ways to do things. It’s better if you can think outside of the box a bit. After all, it’s easier to move forward if your ideas are different from everyone else’s. This way, no one can say that your ideas aren’t original. Kristin Ihle Helledy has written a great article on this topic as well.
