Five Characteristics Needed to be a Great Leader

A leader is not a job title but can be someone at any level. A leader is a coach that helps a person or group to develop. Today's business environment is collaborative and resembles more of a sports team mindset. Athletes have a "team-first" attitude. Leaders need to be mentors and develop their team or peers. Business Analysts can have more influence on the company direction than upper management. A Senior Business Analyst must be a leader and mentor.

Five Characteristics:

  1. Ego: A Leader needs to put their own ego aside.
  2. Instill a team attitude: Team members need to be flexible for the good of the team.
  3. Encourage Innovation and Questions: Leaders encourage questions and new ideas.
  4. Encourage Excellence over Perfection: Team members must accept they will never be perfect.
  5. Lead with Your Heart: A Leader shows how much he or she cares for their team.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Why BA's must be leaders and mentors.
  2. How to become better BA's by leveraging leadership skills.
  3. Why other team members better accept BA's as leaders.
