• What can I do better? It is favorable for both the parties.

8. Consistency.

A consistent leader keeps the same demeanor regardless of whether things are going well or the world is collapsing around them. Leaders who can keep a steady tone inspire more confidence in their teams than visibly panicked leaders.

9. Embrace Growth –Mind-set.

The process is more important than the outcome for growth-minded Leaders. Because a growth mindset Leader always tries to find chances for their team even amid crises. They don’t curl up in a corner, blaming themselves for their failures. Instead, they work to expand their team to solve any obstacle.

10. Room to Uncommon Leadership.

Uncommon Leader has both mentorship and coaching abilities. As a result, they are more focused to coach people rather than instructing. As a result, Uncommon leadership says that leaders need to hold a creative tension between what might seem like conflicting and competing goals.
