Exceptional Leadership: Putting Others First in Technology Projects!


Frequently, our focus tends to be on ourselves, and we unconsciously consider what we can personally gain from a situation. However, outstanding leaders consciously strive to understand how everyone can benefit, effectively communicating the advantages to them. They look at – what is there for others by putting others first!

Technology projects are often complex and challenging, and those working on them can experience significant stress. In addition to financial rewards, it is crucial to highlight the higher purpose behind these projects, demonstrating how the outcomes can benefit humanity, culture, or the bottom line.

Exceptional leaders recognise the broader picture, as well as the individual needs and aspirations of all stakeholders. They can illustrate how the project can help them achieve their dreams and aspirations. Understanding the big picture and recognising what is available for everyone in a given initiative are invaluable. It helps to negotiate at the next level.
