Day#230: A True leader

Hey Uxers! I recently went to an event which I will be discussing in a future post, but for today I wanted to discuss something that really stood out for me. At the end of the event the founder of the company and presenter of the event stated “If you guys enjoyed the event please thank X at the back of the room she did a wonderful job preparing for today and made sure that all of you were well informed and would enjoy your evening” Everyone clapped in applause because it really was a well prepared event, he then said something so small but so important there after, “and if you did not enjoy the event and have any complaints or queries please blame me because then it means I did not facilitate this well”

In that one statement he showed how he values his team and allows for his team to shine, however it also showed with the second part of the statement how he understands that he is responsible for his team if there are any issues and to his team he shows that he will take care of them and have their back if there are any problems. Something so simple displays interesting leadership qualities that I am working on myself, I really admire a lot of leaders in the tech industry and am always looking at ways to improve my own abilities and behaviour. I think this is a great sign of a good leader, to end off I wanted to share this TedTalk that I watched recently on what makes a good leader.
