Be the role model your team needs!

Studies show that we learn by mimicking the actions and behaviors of others [1]. That's why it's vital to set a good example.

Here are six personality traits to help you be a good role model for your team:

1. Self-Awareness

Have you ever considered how others perceive you? Dedicate time to honest self-reflection. Once you can see yourself more clearly, you'll be able to effect real, lasting change.

2. Positivity

Negative behavior has a habit of spreading to those around you. Instead, focus on the bright side and build on your team's successes.

3. Humility

A good role model isn't afraid to ask for help. They know when to step aside, give credit where it's due, and learn from others.

4. Empathy

Use techniques like mindful listening to truly understand the needs of others. Not only will this build trust, but you will also develop more empathic team members.

5. Professionalism

Good role models hold themselves, and their work, to the highest standards. They respect people's time, work and boundaries, and always look for ways to improve.

6. Integrity

Working with integrity means doing the right thing for the right reasons – even if it isn't easy. In return, you'll be rewarded with a stronger and more ethical team.

Good role models earn respect and motivate others to be better. By adopting these six key traits, you can become the role model your team needs!
