Have you ever thought about what makes someone a great leader?
Is it charisma? Or rock solid self-confidence? Or maybe leadership is about seeing the big picture and being able to communicate this vision to other people?
If you think that this topic does not concern you, because your direct job responsibilities do not include leading other people, than think again.
Whether you want it or not, there will be times when you will have to lead other people. In fact, if you are a parent you are already a full-time role model, because your kids expect you to guide, support and inspire them (or at least that is what they should be doing).
Similar, if you ever want to get a job promotion, open your own business or become an authority in any field, then you will have to step up and become a leader. And not just a leader, but someone, who people respect, look up to and willingly follow.
Wouldn’t it be great if other people stopped questioning your decisions, pretending not to hear your requests or becoming defensive every time you ask them to do something?
Maybe you are already a great leader, but just in case take a look at the most important, yet rarely practiced leadership quality.
The truth about what makes a great leader.
