E: Embrace Change
Learn how to challenge yourself to turn fear of change into a desire for change. Great leaders embrace change for personal and professional growth, to satisfy their customers, and to keep the company environment exciting and motivating for their employees.
As a leader, it is your job to help others understand the bigger picture, to help them define their individual contributions to larger business objectives, and to give them what they need to meet those clearly communicated performance goals. Assist with generosity and lead with courage.
Great leaders are decisive. They are able to decide between people vs. position, influence vs. authority, action vs. words, vision vs. money. Wigge makes a clear case for why a focus on people, influence, action, and vision will always be the winning strategy.
Strong leaders are often good entertainers, and people usually like to work with humorous leaders. Humor builds trust, boosts moral, supports creativity, and works as a stress reliever. A Robert Half survey found that 91% of executives believe a sense of humor is important for career advancement; while 84% feel that people with a good sense of humor do a better job.
R: Relate to Others
Successful leaders are connectors. Two-thirds of respondents of a CCL study stated that ‘Building and maintaining relationships is a critical competency for leadership’. Learn how strong-relationship skills and influence are vital for leadership success.
As a business owner or chief executive, are you looking to lead more effectively? As an influencer in your organization, do you envision developing great leaders throughout the ranks to improve teamwork, productivity, innovation, and problem solving?
