Leaders make things happen.
Or they don’t. We all have had experience with different type of leaders, and while some of them did lead us well, some of them didn’t. Leaders are many, but those who can truly lead are very few.
We are aware you already know how to get things done but if you want to learn a thing or two more, here are the known practices of exemplary leaders:
They become the unwavering models
There are things they want to be done and know how to get them done, but the people they lead don’t. What they do is be the model, teach and lead. This way, subordinates can follow the example they were shown. It is a challenging role, being a leader but it is not difficult for them to rise to the challenge.
They share their visions
Nothing is more exciting to a person than a prospect of success and a better future, personally and professionally. That is why leaders of exemplary quality share their visions to their people, to lead and guide them how to get there, together as one.
They encourage others to develop their potential
There is no “me” first attitude when it comes to leadership. The leader encourages and pushes his people to do better and develop their potential, not only for the good of the team but their individual growth as well. A true leader, after all, doesn’t work to clip the wings of others, but rather assist them in making the wings grow until everyone he works with learns how to fly.
They never give up
Not all tasks and goals are created equal, and not all leaders are equal either but the ones who are concerned, those who care, never give up. They always look for a solution when one thing doesn’t work. There will always be options to consider but quitting is never one of them.
May you learn from this and rise in your own time, exemplary in every aspect as a person and a leader.
