Indicative features are characteristics that are characterized by successful leadership. What are these features?
Let me make it clear.
To begin, are successful leaders. . .
6. Good communication (they communicate a program clearly and efficiently)
7. Fair and unprejudiced
Effective leaders. . .
8. Maximize their people's potential by strengthening them.
9. Surround yourself with people better than they are.
10. No matter who takes the credit.
11. Recognize that they are imprecise and acknowledge mistakes when they do
12. Have a burning desire to make a difference. . . positive difference
This list is by no means exhaustive. In fact, I can go again and again.
But no matter how long the list of leadership skills is, I can honestly say that without three of these leadership qualities you will inevitably fail as a leader.
What are these four insufficient features of effective leadership?
1. Surround the people who are better than you
2. Accept mistakes when you make them. Take improvements, learn from them and move on
3. Maximize People's Potential and
4. Be Unselfish. Serve your people and your organization. Excuse personal benefits.
The desire for personal benefit will depend on your judgment and will guide you to the path of failure.
For example, consider what happened recently in the company where I work.
When I write this, I work for an international drinking company with roots in the UK. I'm in one of the offices in West Africa. My coconut drink contains about 50% of the total effect of the drink on cocoa. Obviously it was a big operation. Two years ago, the company's chief executive officer and chief financial officer was fired. Why? Over statement of company accounts. The company did not go well. Instead of telling his bosses, CEO. . . in co-operation with the CFO. . . tempered with the bills to make the company look good and thus maintain its position as CEO. This situation continued for about three success years before external auditors contracted by the parent company in the UK discovered the fraud. This incident caused a loss of $ 116 million to the company. And shareholders have been told that they should not expect dividends over the next two years. The CEO was a young talented fellow who had been the CEO of the company for over 10 years. He was well-respected in society, even working the position of "most preferred CEO" in my country twice.
So what went wrong? What did he take down?
1. Desire for greater prominence, greater fame and personal benefit.
2. Hroka. He refused to acknowledge that he was wrong and put in production to match demand and market conditions. (He had a vision to make the company a billion dollar company in 2010. He called this … projector).
When the market was not growing as fast as production was growing, he refused to slow down production. The factories continued to produce chest speed and the company continued to purchase more warehouses to store what was produced that the market could not be achieved.)
3. He surrounded himself with "yes men" – members of the board who were ruthless. . . managers who stand by and watch while life investment shareholders went down the drain
Do not make a mistake.
No matter how well you are, no matter how intelligible you can be, no matter how many prizes you've won, you'll always fail if you're not an unselfish leader.
Remember all the leadership skills discussed above. But whatever you do, do not forget about the four most important leadership skills.
You can be a great leader. An effective leader is at your fingertips. It begins by understanding the leadership qualities that you need for successful leaders.
The good news is. . . These qualities can be learned. And. . . this is your big chance.
