6 Traits of a Great Leader in the Workplace

When we think of leadership, we sometimes think of epic moments like George Washington crossing the Delaware, or Martin Luther King Jr. speaking on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. But what makes a leader great in a less epic venue, like work?

Communication

A good leader at work is a good communicator and clearly spells out expectations. Not only that, they foster good communication between their team. A great leader goes above and beyond leveraging chats, emails, and texting groups to bring their team together around workplace issues. They don’t just offer tools for networking—they help develop a sense of how to communicate effectively.

Empathy

A good leader in the workplace cares about their employees and shows it. Remembering the details of their lives and asking follow up questions (in a non-invasive way) about spouses, children, parents, and life events shows that they care about their employees and view them as more than just human chattel.…

Turning Knowledge into POWER

One of the magazines I read every month is Success Magazine. I consider it one of the best motivational magazines on life and leadership available today.  There are dozen’s of articles in each issue to help us with all aspects of our lives.

There is also a little surprise strategically placed in the center of the magazine as a BONUS.  It is a CD/DVD with enhanced articles, motivational presentations and ideas.  I love listening to it on the way to work.

Today I joined the Success Achievers Community and have already met some amazing people. I think its a better way to strategically connect with like minded people (its currently not overflowing with hype so its worth checking out. You can learn more here: https://achievers.success.com/feed

The Secrets to Success … Just Ask!

Most of the great leaders and successful business people in the world were looked up to and admired because they attained something many aspire to and maybe never achieve.  I believe it is because they were good at asking questions! Inventors would never invent things if they didn’t ask questions. 

A simple example is the wheel.  I can imagine two Neanderthals sitting around thinking, “gee I would love to visit Ugh, but he lives so far away.”  And his friend says to him, “it wouldn’t be so bad if we had something to get us to his place quicker!”  They had already tried riding the backs of dinosaurs and that didn’t’ work.  Have you ever tried to tell a dinosaur where to go?  Those big lugs don’t like taking orders from anyone! 

Hence the question, what could we invent to get us from point A to point B in faster and safer? Some sort of transportation device is my guess.  And instead of riding on the back of a di…

The Great M’s of Success

People who have studied successful people over the last 300 or more years have found certain traits that accounted to their achievements. These success techniques not only helped them forward but also kept them there even in times of depression, recession or other personal disasters. Four of them are The Great M’s of Success in business and life. <b>Mentoring, Masterminding, Marketing & Motivation</b> I have heard it repeated over and over again, "Get Yourself a Mentor." Get help, advice and guidance by someone who has already been there and made it. A mentor can save you years to a lifetime of mistakes. They can excel you forward, in ways you never could on your own. You’ll have a much greater ability to achieve your goals because you will have a blueprint to guide your way. Surprisingly, many people if not most will go to a friend or relative for advice. People who have never succeeded and have no ambition to go anywhere, and then these same people are sur…

A penny saved is a penny earned- Benjamin Franklin.

Communicating More Effectively

Learning to communicate effectively means that you first must first learn how to be assertive. The other options of communicating are passiveness or aggressiveness – both of which tend to alienate those you’re trying to communicate with.

When you learn to communicate effectively by flexing your assertive muscles, you’ll experience a boost of self-esteem and a personal confidence which will help you succeed in all areas of your life.

You’ll learn to be less resentful or feel inadequate or guilty about your decisions and will experience more freedom in your life. But, most of all – the way you communicate will improve your relationships, both at work and at home.

Assertiveness means that you’re able to express your thoughts and feelings without anger and in an appropriate and honest way. You’ll be standing up for your rights as a thinking and valuable individual and others won’t be confused about your beliefs and opinions.
