These leadership goal examples will include ways to develop your emotional and mental wellbeing in the office.
1. Become More Adaptable to Change
Great leaders have to be prepared for anything, especially with the constant churn of the business world. Though adaptability can be difficult to practice, learning to go (and grow) with the flow is an important business skill. This will help keep your team focused and confident in the face of change while making sure your eyes remain on your overarching career goals.
In order to be more adaptable, great leaders should always have backup plans, create support systems around the office, and not get attached to a specific strategy. Practice mindfulness, positivity, and creativity to keep your cool if changes do occur.
SMART goal example: Enroll yourself in one mindfulness course per quarter to practice adaptability, empathy, and calm.

Six Dominant Leadership Styles
Before a leader can understand the various influences on leadership style, it is important to understand the styles that exist. A coercive style is an all-or-nothing approach in which it’s either “my way or the highway.” An authoritative style makes it clear who the boss is but has room for flexibility. The affiliative style wants the work environment to feel like a community where everyone, including the leader, feels included, according to Southeastern University.
Democratic styles of leadership have the leader constantly asking what subordinates think about goals, processes and potential issues. The coaching style takes on a mentoring approach, constantly helping subordinates try new things. The pacesetter leads by example and is often the first in the office and last out with the highest levels of production.
