it takes to be a Leader
had occurred to me recently that not everybody is a leader…. And That Leaders
are mainly the figureheads of an organization where they can make it fail or
succeed. Yes, those high ethical and moral standards set Leaders apart from the
rest of the world, but there are much more skills to acquire. How do we frame the strategist dimension of the leader?
And who can be a Leader?
People are not born
Leaders but they work on their socio-economical, educational and personal
barriers to develop those leadership skills. Communication is
key…key to all one on one and group decision-making. It lies in writing to be
mostly clear but public speaking, actively listening and providing feedback
define “communication”… where sadly, it is totally lacking these days.
People… Leave your ego at the
door! And instead, work in the front-line and be held responsible for every
decision you take! Accountability
is More than a Test, it is excellence
and equity. It gets terribly serious when the whole Nation is at stake; that’s
when those political realities must be confronted and questioned. It is
simple…you cannot spread awareness if you lack self-awareness.
And when it comes to
Honesty and Integrity, this is where Great leaders are not exclusively those
who solely get results. Rather, they ought to command respect and trust by
being forthright with others. Trust is hence the basis for all the
relationships in your life. Without trust, it's impossible to create healthy
and productive environments, either in work or personal situations.
Speaking of relationship Building though, “Breaking bread” is an easy, and cornerstone to
building relationships. So make use of this time-held tradition. Do Not Take it
for Granted! Furthermore, innovative
leaders take responsibility about obstacles they encounter in aim to overcome
On the other side, a
True Leader Develops Leadership Skills in others by appraising performances;
coaching and mentoring his team. Who would not love to avoid mistakes? ... to
avoid drastic mistakes?
Finally, Leadership is nothing but establishing those learning
climates and guiding reflections. Typically, you cannot be an introvert, on the
contrary, it is all about offering and asking for assistance to promote others
and let them become the best versions of themselves.
and let Learn; …Live and let Live; …Fall but Rise
