4 Things Great Leaders Have In Common
Great Leaders standout. They demonstrate great leadership qualities. People get inspired by their thoughts and presence. What makes Great Leaders tick? There are a few characteristics that are in common amongst them – 4 of which are profiled here.
1. Leadership Presence:
Being present is the first and foremost feature of a great Leader – being there wherever we are! In whole.
Ability to listen enhances leadership presence. Communicating clearly, Influencing people and outcomes positively, further adds to enhanced Leadership Presence
Great Leaders chase Clarity relentlessly. Clarity leads to insights that are relevant. Clarity improves the quality of decisions significantly, brings the required focus and enhances the confidence levels of the Leader and the Teams. Simplifying, being open, curious, and seeing things as they are (not as what we think they are), help improve Clarity.
3. Walk the talk:
Great Leaders walk the talk. They are authentic and trustworthy. They make conscious effort to practice what they preach. They assimilate heightened levels of awareness of emotions; and are sensitive to the emotions – of self and people around.
4. Concern for Society:
Great Leaders genuinely care – for the Society, Communities, the Environment. They always tend to leave the world in a better way than it was.
One may wonder whether these Leadership traits could be developed, improved, enhanced? The answer is Yes!
Aspiring Leaders could access Leadership Coaching and Mentoring to develop and enhance one’s Leadership traits. Leadership Coaching is fast becoming an effective tool to become the Leader that one wants to be!
Leadership Coaching involves a series of focused, one-on-one conversations, tailored to suit the specific needs of the Leader, and the traits that one wants to enhance.
My Leadership Coaching experiences working with high-performing Leaders over the past 9 years have been quite exciting and enriching – for them and for me!
A Leader from a large pan-India FMCG business was able to improve his ability to earn respect from the Team members, inspire the Team to act on certain key initiatives for the Business.
A Leader from a food-processing business was able to uncover a few blind-spots, work on them consciously, and evolve into the Country leadership role.
A Business Leader from Kolkata feeling stuck in the midst of complex business situation was able to unpack his complexities and simplify – thereby able to find Clarity on what really matters. He could work towards those in a focused way, taking some ‘tough actions’ (in his words) in the process to set things right.
Another business Leader was able to derive Clarity as to what to do and what not to do. For a Leader, this is extremely important as it helps substantially in prioritizing their limited time and resources in a most constructive manner.
