Leadership

  1. LEADERSHIP “Leadership is having a vision, sharing that vision and inspiring others to support your vision while creating their own.” -Mindy Gibbins-Klein “Leadership is influencing others by your character, humility and example. It is recognizable when others follow in word and deed without obligation or coercion.” -Sonny Newman “Leadership is inspiring others to pursue your vision within the parameters you set, to the extant that it becomes a shared effort, a shared vision and a shared success.” -Steve Zeitchik
  2. CONCEPT OF LEADERSHIP •Good leaders are made not born. If you have the desire and willpower, you can become an effective leader. Good leaders develop through a never ending process of self-study, education, training, and experience . •To inspire your workers into higher levels of teamwork, there are certain things you must be, know, and, do. These do not come naturally, but are acquired through continual work and study. Good leaders are continually working and studying to improve their leadership skills; they are NOT resting on their past laurels.
  3. LEADERSHIP SKILLS Self-motivation: Motivated leaders desire to achieve above and beyond expectations. This comes from their passion, pride and desire to become better and the motivation to do things better than everyone else. To succeed as a leader, you need to be motivated, and no one else can do that for you except your self. Strategic Thinking: In order to think two steps ahead, leaders need to develop a long- term mindset, using research to make decisions and take time to reflect on your decisions. Organizing: You can’t sail your ship if you don’t know where the sail is, likewise, you can’t run your business if you aren’t organized. Leaders know that value in keeping their personal and professional things (both physical and electronic) in order.
  4. LEADERSHIP SKILLS Positivity: Where others might think a project or task is too difficult, leaders face those challenges with energy and positivity. Manage setbacks/uncertainty: After any failure, big or small, you usually have two options: give up or find a better way. Leaders know when it’s time to double down and when it’s time to fold, they manage uncertainty by making thoughtful decisions on next steps. Intuition: Intuition is to art as logic is to math. Leadership is often about following your gut instinct. It can be difficult to let go of logic in some situations, but uncertainty and risk are a natural in business. Learn to trust your self and not everyone else. Assertiveness: It’s important to make sure your voice is heard as a leader, but in a constructive, helpful way. You need to get your point across clearly, and involve your self in the day-to-day operations of key team members. Look out for opportunities to collaborate and trust your team to make important decisions.
  5. LEADERSHIP SKILLS Decision Making: Making good decisions involves generating good alternatives and analyzing each option diligently. Accountable: Being accountable means that you accept responsibility for the outcomes expected of you, both good and bad. You don’t blame others. And you don’t blame things that were out of your control. Until you take responsibility, you are a victim. And being a victim is the exact opposite of being a leader. Great leaders take initiative to influence the outcome and take responsibility for the results. Discipline: Discipline in leadership is less about punishing and rewarding others, but rather having self-control, inner calm and outer resolve.
  6. LEADERSHIP SKILLS Time management: Great leaders know that time is their most valuable asset. Leaders need to know how to effectively plans their time by knowing when and where to spend it; on your self, your business and family/friends. Public speaking / Speaking skills: Leaders should not have any issues with speaking in front of crowds. Ability to teach: Leaders need to be able to share the methodologies and processes that make their business run with the people they work with and hire. If your managers are poorly trained, your staff will be poorly trained and it will reflect in your sales and operations.
  7. FUNCTIONS OF A LEADER Motivating/Rewarding: People often seek recognition from people they follow, that’s why it’s important to reward and motivate your team members for their input, especially when they go above and beyond. Organizing: Organizing self and others by using leadership skills. Listening: Most people are waiting for their turn to speak, great leaders listen first, speak second. Making good decisions: Making good decisions involves generating good alternatives and analyzing each option diligently. Inspiring: Leaders must act with generosity and gratitude by effecting positive change in the lives of the people around them. Improving lives around: Leaders must act with generosity and gratitude by effecting positive change in the lives of the people around them.
  8. LEADERSHIP STYLES A leadership style is a leader’s style of providing direction, implementing plans and motivating people. There are many different leadership styles that can be exhibited by leaders in the political, business or other fields. Four main styles of leadership are:
  9. LEADERSHIPSTYLES Authoritarian: The leader tells his followers what to do and how to do it, without getting their advice. Paternalistic: It’s a managerial approach that involves a dominant, male father figure who takes complete charge of the employees, his subordinates, in an organization. In return, employees show their trust, loyalty and obedience. Democratic: The leader includes one or more employees in the decision making process, but the leader normally maintains the final decision making authority. LAISSEZ-FAIRE: The leader allows the employees to make the decisions, however, the leader is still responsible for the decisions that are made.
  10. LEADERSHIP MYTHS •Following are the most common myths of leadership: Leaders have more education than others: Educational degrees may mean that you have a good education, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you are a good leader. The best leaders are extroverts: Being an introvert or an extrovert determines how one recharges. Introverts recharge alone while extroverts recharge by being with others. There are no studies that suggest recharging one way or the other makes you a better leader. The main point is to find a way to recharge regularly to avoid burnout. Leaders are born with the instinct to lead: Some people want to lead, but that doesn’t make them great leaders. Great leadership is a lifetime goal; you do not become a great leader overnight.
  11. LEADERSHIP MYTHS Leaders work smarter, not harder: Leaders also work hard, like any other in an organization. Leaders are to control: Leaders are not to control but, to manage and organize people for the accomplishment of the goal.
