Cultivate 3 Traits that Will Make You a Stronger Leader
Despite what some may think, the perfect leader is not just born that way. Steve Jobs and Jeff Bezos of the world understood that while yes, they possessed certain characteristics that made them strong leaders, they also had to recognize their weaknesses and manage those accordingly.
Below are three capabilities that every leader should be able to tap into and cultivate to progress in their professional journey.
Finetune your vision strategy
In running a company, a CEO needs to begin with a firm vision regarding where that company is and consequently where it needs to go. But it’s more than just defining said vision, you also need to be able to take those actions that will help to achieve your vision.
By drawing on your experience, by talking to those within the company, by actually listening, you help to strengthen your vision and ultimately put your firm on the path toward success.
Relate to others
Existing in a bubble, a leader apart is not going to get it done. The people who work for you and with you are, well, people. Empathizing with others, understanding their struggles and their needs at times is a part of what makes a leader effective.
Relating is also coaching and teaching. Your team is looking to you for guidance and support. The best way to offer this is to first be able to put yourself in their position.
Your actions in part define your company. Your integrity is one of the most essential tools you have as far as cultivating your leadership abilities. Treating others fairly and with dignity, building a culture of trust and compassion, this goes a long way toward establishing your true credibility as a leader.
Remember, you lead by example; what do you want your team members to emulate? A good leader, an effective leader leaves the ego at the door and understands how to motivate.
