Successful leadership includes more than skills.lt;/pgt; lt;pgt;______________________________________________________________________________________________________lt;/pgt; lt;p class="has-text-align-center"gt;lt;stronggt;Successful Leadership Includeslt;/stronggt;lt;stronggt;lt;/stronggt;lt;/pgt; lt;figure class="wp-block-image size-large is-resized"gt;lt;img fetchpriority="high" decoding="async" height="682" src="https://in8b45.p3cdn1.secureserver.net/images/team-via-phone-Geralt-Pixabay-1024x682.jpg" alt class="wp-image-35955" "https://in8b45.p3cdn1.secureserver.net/images/team-via-phone-Geralt-Pixabay-1024x682.jpg 1024w, https://in8b45.p3cdn1.secureserver.net/images/team-via-phone-Geralt-Pixabay-980x653.jpg 980w, https://in8b45.p3cdn1.secureserver.net/images/team-via-phone-Geralt-Pixabay-480x320.jpg 480w" sizes="(min-width: 0px) and (max-width: 480px) 480px, (min-width: 481px) and (max-width: 980px) 980px, (min-width: 981px) 1024px, 100vw"gt;lt;/figuregt; lt;pgt;lt;stronggt;My Storylt;/stronggt;lt;/pgt; lt;pgt;The question, ‘What are you thinking?' comes to mind for varying and essential reasons. Mindset is the first critical aspect of leadership. Corporate sales taught me the best lesson - ‘how not to lead!' It was entirely egotistical, clearly putting in order the people who mattered vs. those who did not and laying out ‘the rule of the land.'amp;nbsp;lt;/pgt; lt;pgt;If one was not a favorite person of the person in charge, they may as well have worked remotely long before the concept was known. Hence, my enjoyment in sales was being with my prospects and official clientele. The bonus is that most of my day was spent that way, so I became the top producer to everyone's angst.lt;/pgt; lt;pgt;lt;stronggt;Successful Leadership Includes:lt;/stronggt;lt;/pgt; lt;ulgt; lt;ligt;A positive mindsetlt;/ligt; lt;ligt;Listening before dismissinglt;/ligt; lt;ligt;Collaborationlt;/ligt; lt;ligt;Sharing experiences and insightslt;/ligt; lt;ligt;Motivating and inspiring others to grow and leadlt;/ligt; lt;ligt;Integritylt;/ligt; lt;/ulgt; lt;pgt;lt;stronggt;Today's Workforcelt;/stronggt;lt;/pgt; lt;pgt;When you recall treatment in previous years and read today's news about staff disrespect, it's no wonder there is so much ‘quiet quitting' and people preferring to work remotely.amp;nbsp;The turnover is close to being a silent epidemic, which puts more pressure on management, which then passes the pressure along with undesirable rhetoric to their staff.lt;/pgt; lt;pgt;lt;stronggt;Turnaround Timelt;/stronggt;lt;/pgt; lt;pgt;For those in leadership positions, it's time to reckon with oneself. Consider all those who report to you and the percentage of those seemingly unhappy plus those quietly quitting. If the numbers are higher than what is acceptable, the time is today to begin altering harmful patterns that are creating the issues.amp;nbsp;lt;/pgt; lt;pgt;lt;stronggt;Change or Not to Change - To Be or Not to Be A Leaderlt;/stronggt;lt;/pgt; lt;pgt;Modeling good leadership requires the willingness to improve oneself to empower those following our lead. As with any desire to attain the next level, it's critical to continue figuring out how one may improve their efforts. Even top management of large corporations isn't always the model of perfection. With the technological changes coming to us so quickly, creating an inclusive environment for more people to contribute their ideas and feel rewarded for doing so is vital.lt;/pgt; lt;pgt;lt;stronggt;Your Storylt;/stronggt;lt;/pgt; lt;pgt;For many, leading a company or people reporting to them is beyond their desired responsibility. Sadly, they may discourage you from attempting a leadership role if that's what you want. The best starting point is to confirm what you truly desire and then plan how to take your career to the next level and the next…lt;/pgt; lt;pgt;Some people desiring to lead but lack confidence will do well in taking a public speaking class. It enhances public speaking and one's confidence without ego. The next related point is to check your ego at the door to concentrate on learning in every way imaginable:lt;/pgt; lt;ulgt; lt;ligt;Classeslt;/ligt; lt;ligt;Experiences of all typeslt;/ligt; lt;ligt;People you encounter and with whom you workamp;nbsp;lt;/ligt; lt;/ulgt; lt;pgt;Most of all, be welcoming of all ideas because you never know what the next one may be.amp;nbsp;Although many may not suit your program, be courteous in hearing them out, as a golden nugget may be hidden within it. If not, explain diplomatically why you prefer not to proceed so that a deeper understanding may be passed along. Finally, when an excellent thought is presented, thank the person, implement it, and provide a bonus to reward the provider for the idea, proving it works well.lt;/pgt; lt;pgt;lt;stronggt;In Conclusion:lt;/stronggt;amp;nbsp;lt;stronggt;Successful Leadership Includes More than Skillslt;/stronggt;lt;/pgt; lt;pgt;The overall essential goal is to work on behalf of the greater good.amp;nbsp;In the case of becoming an admired leader, it's necessary to become familiar with what your reports desire for their goals to encourage, motivate, and help achieve them. Doing so will boost you into the admired leadership role. Next, continue serving your reports well and spreading goodwill in efforts such as community service.lt;/pgt; lt;pgt;lt;stronggt;For more Insights,amp;nbsp;lt;/stronggt;lt;a href="https://www.amazon.com/stores/Elinor Stutz/author/B001JS1P8S" target="_blank" rel="noreferrer noopener"gt;lt;stronggt;Visit Elinor's Amazon Author Pagelt;/stronggt;lt;/agt;lt;/pgt;
