The article presents information on guidelines on developing leadership qualities. Developing leadership skills is an ongoing process. Sadly, this isn't recognized by many organizations which tend to invest more in bringing on new managers than honing the skills of more established ones. According to a study last year from junior managers in Great Britain business are twice as likely to have received leadership development than company directors — the group least likely to spend time polishing their skills. Leadership skills tend not to go in and out of fashion like management styles, but there is a need to sharpen and continue to develop them throughout your career.
