How to tell others you're ready for leadership

Firstly, identify your leadership brand by being clear about what you stand for. Think about the three values most important to you as a leader and colleague, and reflect on how you've lived them in your career. Consider why they're important for driving success, and be prepared to describe your leadership philosophy in an interview or when speaking to someone junior.

Next, hone your decision-making skills. As you move up the ladder, your problems will become more complex, and you'll be more accountable for your decisions to become a master decision-maker, practice seeking input from your team, be honest with yourself and others (even when it's difficult), and challenge your assumptions.

Lastly, build self-awareness. As a leader, everything you say and do has a significant impact. People will observe you closely and interpret every gesture and comment you make. Therefore, keeping your emotions in check is important so people can focus on their work rather than trying to read your mood.
