Helping Create Success
“It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult undertaking which, more than anything else, will determine its successful outcome”. – William James
It is not what happens to us that really matters, but how we react toward those situations as leaders that determine how best we deliver to our mandate. Good leaders choose a positive outlook on situations. They are constantly seeking solutions and new ideas for problems.
The leaders who have led change in various sectors of our society made an impact, challenged the status quo, and have won for themselves, not just the numerous awards but the respect of many of us are individuals who have a positive attitude to life. Some of them even team members who might not have been challenged enough to see the bright side of things, but by the fact that they constantly got in touch with the leader and his positivity, they became poised for action and went all out to help their leaders succeed.
Most often than not a leader with a positive attitude is able to carry his followers along in meeting the most presumably difficult tasks. You become less burdened when the positive attitude you have is rubbed on your followers too.
If you want to be an achiever, then you have to change your attitude to one of positivity.
Make a decision today to nurture positive attitudes in yourself and your team members.
“A good leader takes a little more than his share of the blame, a little less than his share of the credit.” – Arnold H. Glasow.
A leader is one whose actions inspire others to dream more, do more, learn more, and become more. Leaders are people who are not afraid to challenge the status quo and do better. Leaders are trailblazers. A clear sign of a good leader is one who steps up and takes responsibility every time. There is nothing worse than a leader who is indifferent about the progression of work being done.
Leaders are not afraid to take responsibility for their actions and those of their team members. In everything we do, there are bound to be mistakes; a good leader understands this and is geared to curb it. You cannot do it alone, and that is why you have a team. Your team members will trust, respect, and work better with you if you are able to take responsibility and speak for them when there is a mistake or they fall out of place.
You can be a good leader too. “The price of greatness is responsibility.” — Winston Churchill. Do you want to know how? Talk to us at CTL Africa and our dynamic world-class coaches will help you get there.
“Leadership is a process of social influence which maximizes the efforts of others towards the achievement of a goal”. Kevin Kruse
Leadership is a process. It does not just happen. Many of us get excited by events, but are not willing to take the time to go through the painful process to grow into leadership. This process involves developing social relationships to gain the permission to lead. Leadership is not of right. Once you have gained the permission, your job as a leader is to add value to your followers in order to maximize their efforts toward the attainment of a set objective. If your leadership is not improving the lives of the people you lead, then you need to answer some serious questions. The highest purpose of leadership is to add value to others.
It will require that you go out of your way sometimes to even pay for the development of the members on your team. Some leaders think it is the absolute responsibility of their followers to develop themselves, but the truth is that, if you invest in your followers, you are helping yourself to build a more resilient, efficient, and effective team. This means that it will be more beneficial to you the leader to add value to your followers regardless of the cost it may come with.
