Does Becoming A Leader Excite You?

What sets you apart from the majority of leaders? Having a clear picture of what needs to be achieved is a crucial quality of good leadership development.  You must be a serving leader, as opposed to a self-serving leader. You are the asset and instrument that gets other people to where they want to go. Focus, drive and belief helps you become a servant leader.

Leadership development defines activities and behaviors that improve your skills, abilities and confidence to lead others. Success coaching and mentoring are two forms of development often used to guide and develop leaders. Hence, mastering critical leadership qualities includes communication, the ability to motivate others and sever others in order to help them fulfill their destinies. 

Leadership Development

First of all, Bill Gates says “As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.” This is what leadership development is all about. 

Similarly, with your new success coaching behaviors, you will set yourself apart from the leader pack.  Imagine yourself being the leader you’ve always wanted to be. A confident echelon leader. One who leads with influence and passion. 

Hence, three invaluable areas to dominate as an influential leader are communication, relationship building and team building. What can technology do when coupled together with a human? All these three areas become swiftly satisfied. Here are the four worst leadership errors and how to correct them in this article. 

A leader who understands designing and building their life and the life of others is a very effective leader. 

Leadership development is a life-long process. Every great leader always looks for ways to improve. No one ever wakes up and says, “I know everything there is to know about leadership… I’m a perfect leader”.

Therefore, I’ve included ten quotes below from some of the most successful entrepreneurs in the world that all use regular success coaching:

Peter Drucker, Management Consultant  – “Foster Teamwork. The leaders who work most effectively, it seems to me, never say ‘I.’. That’s not because they have trained themselves not to say ‘I.’. They don’t think ‘I.’ because they think ‘team.’ They understand their job is to make the team function. They accept responsibility and don’t sidestep it. However, ‘we’ gets the credit. This is what creates trust and enables you to get the task done”

Jack Welch, Former CEO, General Electric  – “Encourage Growth In Others. Great leaders love to see people grow. The day you are afraid of them being better than you is the day you fail as a leader”.

Sam Walton, Founder of Walmart  – “Boost Employee Self-Esteem. Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.”

Marissa Mayer, CEO of Yahoo – “Take Care Of People. Really in technology, it’s about the people, getting the best people, retaining them, nurturing a creative environment and helping to find a way to innovate.”

Walt Disney, Co-Founder, The Walt Disney Company  – “Coordinate, Aim For A Goal. Of all the things I’ve done, the most vital is coordinating those who work with me and aiming their efforts to a certain goal.”

Jeff Bezos, Former CEO, Amazon  – “Be Willing To Be Misunderstood. Inventing and pioneering requires a willingness to be misunderstood for long periods of time.”

Ann Mulcahy, Former CEO, Xerox Corporation  – “Get People To Follow You. I think sometimes we forget that we’re not actually anointed leaders. We actually have to earn it and we have to have people that trust us and are willing to follow. I think that really is the differentiator between great leadership and average leadership.”

Fred Smith, Founder and CEO, FedEx  – “Inspire People. Leadership is getting people to work for you when they are not obligated.”

Ken Chenault, Former CEO, American Express  – “Understand Reality And Give Hope. I’ve paraphrased that quote. Certainly, I don’t want to wind up like Napoleon. But, what is very hard when you’re in a leadership position is to get reality and define it. You have so many competitive forces. Whether it’s the business issues you’re facing or people giving you different perspectives. And it takes a winner to say, here are the reasons why you should have hope, here are the pragmatic reasons, here are the aspirational reasons why you should have that hope.”

Richard Branson, Chairman of Virgin Group  – “Be A Good Listener. Leaders need to be good listeners for everyone. From customers to employees to business colleagues. They need to listen to what other people say and not just hear it. Listening also helps a leader get multiple perspectives from multiple people.”

Above all, the above highly successful people attribute much of their success to utilizing success coaching. No great leader or entrepreneur can do it on their own.

CONCLUSION: Leadership development goes side-by-side with success coaching and is a natural outcome. As you begin to unblock the roadblocks and change your thinking, everything changes including your leadership skills.
