Every job candidate is going to showcase their leadership talents during their job search. You cannot be the one to not do so. You might argue that you want to stand apart from the competition and hence you would like to do something different. But not showcasing your leadership talent is akin to killing your job search before it even begins. Because companies are still looking for strong leadership talents at all levels even for individual contributor roles.
So which are at the top 3 skills that you must showcase?
1. Communication skills.
You need to showcase not only how well you communicate your views to others but also - how you listen to others beyond their spoken words and help them communicate their views in a way that creates greater clarity and greater collaboration.
2. Effective delegation.
Effective delegation is first and foremost about trust. Trust in others and their abilities. And in doing so, it is about trust in yourself to be able to handle any consequences that arise from delegation. Delegation is a must because there is no way to achieve results without involving others in the process; without delegation of important tasks and decisions. There is no way to be everywhere, all the time.
3. Emotional Intelligence
The VUCA world is not going to be kind to you nor to anyone else you work with. And despite all the volatility, despite all the uncertainty, despite all the complexity, despite all the ambiguity - an effective leader has to be the voice of reason, the voice of stability and maturity - not just for himself or herself but also for the others he/she works with. Emotional intelligence is what keeps you unswayed and centered through the tornado of life that we term as VUCA.
If you are looking to make a jump in your career to the next higher level, then you must demonstrate that you are already performing at that higher level.
Which means the level of your leadership skills which is sufficient for your current position will not be sufficient for the next higher level that you are seeking.
You need to develop and sharpen your leadership skills for the next level of your career.
