How do you exhibit leadership qualities?
The lively discussion saw both men and women engaging from lots of different professions and industries come together to discuss their best advice and experiences on leadership. The purpose of this weeks Twitter Chat was for our Rising Stars, judges and WeAreTheCity members to share their advice, opinions and experience on leadership. We would like to take this opportunity to extend our thanks to all who took part.
We will be holding another Twitter Chat this Thursday on the subject of Motivation.
There were so many top tips during the tweet chat, here are just a few from our wonderful ladies and gentlemen. You can see the full conversation by looking up #watctop100 on Twitter or by following @WATC_Updates.

Leadership is not a position. Leaders are responsible in their roles, drive excellence and encourage others. https://t.co/HlcwfE0mqk

@WATC_Updates Very much so. HBS defines it as making others better as a result of your presence & making sure impact lasts in your absence

Yes if you have a strong relationship with the leader in Q- you need trust, respect and clear comms before feedback! https://t.co/Y58AhwHBQg

@WATC_Updates yes. Those in “leadership” positions are not always the most influential within companies or organisations.

At the end of the discussion, we held a 24 hour poll on our account to find out people’s feelings and thoughts on leadership. These are the results from the poll.
Do you feel you have access to the necessary training & support to be an effective leader in the future? #watctop100
