Communicate effectively: Strong communication skills are crucial for effective leadership. Make sure to listen actively to your team members, and provide clear and concise instructions. Practice active listening, ask questions, and provide feedback.
Empower others: Good leaders don’t micromanage their team members; they empower them to make their own decisions. Encourage your team to take ownership of their work, and provide them with the resources and support they need to succeed
Keep learning: The world is constantly changing, and to be an effective leader, you need to stay up-to-date with the latest trends, technologies, and best practices in your field. Reading industry publications, attending conferences, and participating in training programs are great ways to keep learning and growing as a leader.

Be adaptable: As a leader, it’s important to be able to adapt to new situations and challenges. Be open to new ideas and perspectives, and be willing to adjust your approach as needed.
Remember that leadership is a continuous learning process, and it takes time to master it. So keep working on it, practicing and you will see a positive change in yourself and those you lead instantly.
Lead From Within: The greatness of a leader is measured by the achievements of the led. This is the ultimate test of their effectiveness and skill.
