Improve your command skills to command your teamAs a leader how to command and control your team members is a big responsibility. Especially, when you're a newcomer in any organization, you have to manoeuvre even in untoward situations while being receptive of resistance from those who report you directly or criticism from higher authorities who do you have accountability to.
There rises a question on your command skills. A good leader is always cool in all situations whether being in favourable or unfavourable, he knows how to put effective command and control into practice, he understands its fundamental nature, its purpose, characteristics, environment, and basic functioning. This understanding will become the basis for developing a theory and a practical philosophy of command and control.
But those who are lacking in basic understanding of how to implement command fails to be a successful leader. A bull in China shop can never have abilities to implement command over his team. He does nothing but mess.
If you want to be a successful leader then you require to tweak your command skills by keeping yourself in command from harmful traits like exasperation, lacking in restraint, edging yourself at wits end under duress and unfavourable conditions.
Decision making needs great skills, so a good leader before taking any decision and implementing his ideas into practice considers all pros and cons. Invariably, differences come out when any decision is materialized and crew is expected to abide by it but unexpected resistance emanates, moreover, you have intangible duress from higher authorities as well, in this situation you are sandwiched between two forceful entities.
Here you should keep in your mind that an intelligent leader keeps his patience intact and create artificial and orchestrated situation to remove all hurdles and impediments whether tangible or intangible which come on his way of his authority and command. Having removed all stones and pebbles he makes his way clean and smooth.
