Yes I believe it is essential to have leadership qualities in business. Strong business ethics, honesty and determination help you stand out from your competitors.
You cannot run a successful business without strong leadership qualities and having integrity in business. People need to trust you.
I am going to look at the different aspects of being a great leader in your business this week.
How being a strong leader is doing, not just talking.
These are the 7 aspects I will be writing a Blog about this week.
- Are you a good leader in your business?
- Do you have a good Business Mentor who can help you?
- Do you lead by example and are you responsible and reliable leader?
- Do you care and appreciate your people?
- Do you acknowledge your staff’s efforts?
- Do you help your staff to develop leadership qualities?
- Who can you promote to a leadership position in your company?
Leadership in business is expected of us, but do we really know how this will impact on our staff and our clients. If you are the owner of a business, whether it is as a: Solo Entrepreneur; Sole Trader; Partnership; Company or Corporation, people rely on us to make wise and just decisions.
Is this easy, well quite frankly no it is not. It takes time, patience and a teachable spirit to learn how to be a great leader. It is not a solo effort. You do need the help of a trusted friend or Business Mentor to help you on your journey. Just when you think you have solved the current problem, a fresh one arises usually without much warning. This is when we need the advise of a trusted adviser.
How do we go about ensuring that we are making the right decisions in our business? I believe it is essential in business to have a wise Business Mentor who is not involved in your business, but who knows you well. Who has your best interest at heart and is keen to help you grow and prosper. Who thinks seriously about the problems you are facing and that you trust enough to listen to and then implement the strategies that you have worked through together. It is a partnership of trust that is developed over time. They will be able to identify solutions, that you may not have even thought of.
A good Business Mentor will always act honestly with high integrity and support you in your decision making process. They will be someone who will be available to you when you need them and not let you down.
We will explore these other aspects of being a great leader this week. It does not happen overnight, but with a patience and ‘Can Do Attitude’ you will be amazed at how far you will go and grow with good support in place.
I look forward to sharing more of my ideas around leadership in business tomorrow. Stay tuned…
