There is power in silence.
Some people make their message heard by a loud voice while others say the loudest thing in complete silence. We prefer silence and power anytime. People who work hard in silence and without the fuss are often the ones who achieve their dreams and make great things happen.
Are you one of them? Do you lead by silence?
A true leader has confidence in what he can do and does not doubt his ability to lead even without raising his voice. He leads by action and not by meaningless words. He sets a good example by showing action and giving leadership a whole new meaning.
A true leader does not boast his achievements, he shares them with his people instead, making sure they also succeed in what they do. Since it becomes a collective team effort, the chance of success is higher, and more often than not, the team actually achieves its goals. When this happens, a true leader does not take credit but commends his subordinates for a job well done.
It is true that an organization needs a good leader to succeed and achieve its goals, to be profitable and stay in business. However, it is equally valid that it requires a good team of people to make it happen. It is teamwork that makes everything worthwhile. It is good camaraderie between its leaders and team members. In short, a good leader makes all these happen.
When one leads by action and example, it is not difficult to follow. In the end, the ones who do it with confidence and by silence are the people who get the job done. They are also the ones who make the best leader and create the best team—a sure-fire formula for success.
Tell us, what kind of leader are you? Or what kind of leader do you have if you aren’t one yet?
