They are outcome driven not just process driven.
They understand the process but they never let go of the outcome!
Great Leaders have Certainty ~
People are attracted to certainty, in fact most people crave certainty!
They find a way to meet peoples deeper needs, not just their desires!
Their need to contribute...Their need to grow.... Sense of Contribution
Great Leaders Listen ~
They really listen and take in the experience as well as what is being said>>>
They see what's not being said...they go deeper>>>>>>>
Great Leaders have a self awareness so that while they can utilize the patterns that made them successful they can still monitor and see what is going on beyond themselves.
They can step out of themselves and see their own patterns......
where they are strong and where they are weak!!
They are also able to MODULATE and that is why
Great Leaders become Stronger and Lead more Effectively !!
Great Leaders are Life-long Learners>>>>
They read, they listen, they study, they expand, they go deep>>>
They lead because they are prepared ... they lead because they have done their homework
Great Leaders Go Deep....they don't just stay on the surface!
Great Leaders lead for the purpose of Serving.
Not for the purpose of getting or gaining anything whether it be money or attention! They may achieve those things as a secondary benefit but their quest is to serve.... Life moves to what serves more of Life!!
Great Leaders Live what they Teach!!
No one's perfect but they stay congruent with their core message. Great Leaders are willing to fail but it is not failing because they are learning from their experiences.
Leadership is not something you were born with ~
Leadership is something that is ignited in someone when they find something they believe in and something they want to serve greater then themselves! That's when Leadership qualities start to develop. Leadership skills can be learned but the character of Leadership can only be lived. Leaders earn their ability to lead.
Leaders Build People Up~
They don't tear them down. Leaders get people to set a new standard for themselves to live by when the leader is not even there!
Leaders have energy, there is power in a Leader that comes from what they stand for that is unmatched by their fear of weakness ....Even the fear of weakness they have within themselves at times!
Leaders have the power to attract and drive -
they don't just push ~ they pull
They do it by going first. Leaders are committed to doing what is right!!
