Being a mayor is a difficult job. As the public face of the whole community, you must always listen to the people of your region and lead in a way that serves their best interests. Besides, you should have large and deep knowledge in every field, as well, you must also meet plenty of qualifications.
So, how do we attract and select the best people for the job? What are some qualities and characteristics that are vital in a local leader?
Vital qualities required in a mayor
A well understanding of the chartered system in the community he or she is in charge of is one of the requirements for becoming mayor of a city. The elected council shares power. Then there are the vital departments, which specifically include police, fire, sewage, public works, or any other appropriate municipal services.
The mayor should also always update his or her knowledge to be suitable for the current situation. As well, they should enlarge their understanding of other fields as they are the ones who make the final decisions on behalf of the whole town. That means having overall knowledge about everything is important.
Management and Leadership Skills
Management is the ability to move others from Point A to Point B. Leadership entails understanding where Point B is. The mayor is the one who gives the community direction. The best mayors should have a vision for the future and be able to sell it to the people.
Good Communication Skills
A mayor must have strong communication abilities, particularly the capacity to listen as he or she must convince people to join him in his vision. Because selling the vision of the future to others is a quality of a good mayor, he or she must have strong communication skills to persuade those above him to proceed in the direction he desires.
The ability to inspire others.
A good mayor inspires others. People want to get involved and be a part of the effort. One thing that good mayors do is start with a successful project and then build on it. One mayor I know even says that mayors should not make their big goals public because it gives their opponents ammunition if they fail. Keep it quiet and just do it, he says.
Never underestimate the value of building relationships with each other, with staff, and with the greater community. The investment of time and energy on the front end will save you emotional angst on the back end. Disrespect, contempt, and personal attacks create unhealthy relationships that undermine sound governance. If one wishes another to fail, then everyone fails. Good relationships and sound policy serve your community, spite or pandering seldom does.
