Master the Fundamentals: Leadership

Do you spend a lot of time thinking: “why is my business/department not performing as it should?”, “my team are not giving it their best”, “the new initiatives/strategies aren’t taking root”, “our growth in revenue/profits is too slow”?, “why are the necessary changes so hard to implement and embed”?

Well we have the answer to maybe why.

Having Manager, Director, Partner, CEO, President, Head of, Team Leader etc … in a job title doesn’t make someone a leader  –  in fact, many of the individuals with such titles aren’t leaders at all.

The biggest attributes successful leaders have include building trust and credibility with others and influencing people to do what is required to achieve an end goal, or objective … by making it their own idea … thereby always exceeding challenging objectives and producing excellent results.

Positively influencing the thoughts and actions of others to achieve, or exceed, a common purpose, is what leadership is all about.

Winning hearts and minds is at the very essence of real leadership  –  where people do the “right stuff”  –  WILLINGLY.

The best definition of leadership

“The ability to positively influence others to work together to achieve a specific commonly agreed goal, or objective. A leader is someone who can influence the thoughts and actions of others through the use of persuasion, motivation, creativity, collaboration, empowerment and interactive team-building to achieve specific goals and objectives. And someone who can repeat the process again and again and again”.
