You Can Be A Leader

Be a Leader in Software Testing

Being the boss at any job would be great, but that is not what being a leader is about. No matter where you rank in leadership, no matter what your role is for an organization, be the leader that you would also like to be led by. Being a leader is not about telling someone to do something, it is about striving to be the best that you can be and pushing yourself to be better than who you were yesterday. 
Key skills you need as a leader:

  • Listening and communication within your team are a must.
  • Holding yourself to the same standards as others around you is also needed.
  • Another valuable attribute is seeing potential in your personal development and working towards achieving it.
These are not things that are achieved overnight. As a good leader, you must always reevaluate yourself. 

Let's not stop at personal development but expand that to what could make a team stronger:

  • You should also motivate others around you to also be leaders on your team.
  • A team should understand each other’s strengths and what each one of you contributes to the final product.
