Although some people claim to be ‘natural-born leaders’, Psychology Today notes that most experts consider leadership to be a learned skill. If you don’t know the correct practices and management techniques, you’re bound to make mistakes without even realizing it. Explore the following resources from The Sandusky Group and improve your ability to lead others effectively.

Learning Materials

There are many methods of leadership that can help you to galvanize more people and invite less confrontation.

● Norwich University points out that there are ten commonly recognized leadership styles, each with its own unique pros and cons.

Podcasts have become an excellent source of information for when you’re trying to succeed as a leader.

● Youtube has a wealth of informational channels for those looking to explore the subject of leadership.

Educational Courses

Many industries are actively seeking trained and qualified leaders. The right course can improve your people skills and even help you to pursue a new career.

● Management consultancy firms sometimes offer short-term leadership programs.

● Some master's degrees can be earned via part-time courses or evening/weekend classes, so you can fit learning around your ordinary schedule.

● Many full-time college degrees offer insight into leadership strategy.


Learning through resources or education is important but some people develop their leadership style via experience.

● Founding your own business is a great way to learn the skills necessary to lead others, such as task delegation. If you want to form a Limited Liability Company (LLC), you can use a formation service to get started. Just be sure to research the best LLC services online, and compare which ones are the best value and provide ongoing support.

● Whilst at work, it could show initiative and help you to gain valuable experience if you offer to lead on individual projects.

● If this isn’t possible, volunteering can be a great way to grow into leadership positions that are otherwise difficult to attain in your day job.

Leading others is a privilege, not a right, and one afforded to those who are most equipped to do so. If you can take the time to learn about methods and the habits of people, you’ll be well on your way to the top job.
