    You could replace "tried" with "put into practice".
    I am not a teacher or a native speaker.

    "The thing that I put into practice in my recent managerial roles and that paid off, is that a great leader is one who empowers others, not one who abuses power or authority."

    Those words at the beginning of the sentence constitute a noun phrase and are the subject of the sentence.

    I believe I would settle for being a good leader and let others aspire to greatness.

    It does look like your writing is getting better.

    So the above is totally correct and I can use it?

    Someone said the last parts contains some errors. Is that correct?

    You might want to find a better word than "thing" for a professional LinkedIn bio.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
