Leadership Skills for Non-Supervisors

A management or supervisory position is not needed for team members to make a positive impact.

Now more than ever, impactful work is done and trust is built using skills of interpersonal influence rather than the means of positional authority.

Core values are important at all levels of employment for an organization to be successful. Take attitude. The words you speak and the emotions that you display impact people around you for better or for worse. By choosing wisely what to express and what to keep to yourself, you can motivate, influence, and inspire or you can shut down productivity and breed negativity.

This is especially difficult—and thus, all the more important—when things are not going well.

You also don’t need the title of boss to communicate strategy and vision. You must earn respect and credibility and appeal to deeper motivations than the proverbial carrot-and-stick. How information is packaged determines how well it will be received; clear communication and a concrete action plan will get you most of the way there.

Leadership skills can especially be demonstrated during group and meeting facilitation. This type of work is not done alone. You often need to involve multiple subject matter experts from across the organization to accomplish impactful work of meaning and substance.

Also, even if you’re not a in a supervisor, manager, or executive role, you can still give feedback to others. If you do have a suggestion for another person regarding something they can improve or work on, make sure you can support your point and know how to deliver the feedback in a respectful manner.

Positive feedback is also beneficial. There’s nothing wrong with making those around you realize that people are paying attention to their work and it is appreciated.

Leadership qualities can also be demonstrated by showing respect to other employees and being responsive. Individuals like to be acknowledged and know that you hear what they say. Being responsive will show others that you care and are engaged in what they’re doing.

Truth is, leadership is really about influence, and you can influence people without being the person who signs off on their vacation requests.

Some leadership professionals refer to non-supervisory leadership as “domain leadership.”  Individual contributors, specialists, any kind of leadership that doesn’t have to do with managing people — that’s domain leadership.

Interestingly, there are some studies that suggest the future of work might be heavily focused on domain leadership. The idea behind this is that most of an organization’s activity will be automated or outsourced. Consequently, teams will be more self-managed, which will result in a vast reduction in the number of traditional managers and supervisors.

Rather than work under permanent bosses, employees may instead have formal mentors who help guide their careers from project to project.
