Developing leadership skills is a point of emphasis in the Proof Management training program. As we work to refine our people’s management abilities, we find that we’re focused more and more on the following essential traits:

• Listening Skills: Being a great communicator is vital to becoming a strong leader. However, it isn’t limited to the way someone speaks to others. We stress listening skills as we develop future leaders, focusing also on asking insightful questions. It’s essential that any prospective manager be patient enough to hear what his or her team members have to say.

• The Ability to Teach Others: We’ve found that people with the most leadership potential take on mentorship roles without being asked. They have growth mind-sets that allow them to focus on improvement. This goes both for themselves and for the people around them. We want to be sure any future Proof Management leader has the capacity to empower his or her colleagues.

• Emotional Intelligence (EI): Effective managers are in touch with their own emotions. They also know how their actions affect other people’s feelings. Selfless people who can empathize with others are the ones who excel as business leaders. We do whatever we can to amplify EI throughout our team.

We focus on these qualities as we develop our people into leaders.
