Genuine Leaders


When people know you are interested in their best interest, and in helping them meet their needs, they will trust you. It’s human nature. And that genuine interest in helping others and making a positive difference is the essence of leadership.

People who act as leaders care less about the impressions they make than the influence they exert on others to take positive action. Effective leaders know what they to accomplish with every conversation they have, every e-mail, phone call or speech. “Begin with the end in mind.” What do I want this person with whom I’m communicating to think, feel and do when I’m done? How can I empower them?
People do things for their own reasons not for yours. To be an effective leader you need to know how to motivate others. The simple fact is people need reasons to do things. We all have so many demands on our time and energy we want to justify our actions. To enlist the support and service of others you simply need to show them the benefits.
“Leadership is the art of getting extraordinary performance from ordinary people.”

Others tell. Leaders sell.
Others impress. Leaders influence.
Others strive to be heard. Leaders strive to be understood.
Others explain. Leaders energize.
Others inform. Leaders inspire.
Others relay facts. Leaders tell stories.


Leaders live intentionally:
People who act as leaders in their lives and the lives of others understand the why and how of living intentionally. By focusing attention and care on each moment they create a legacy of accomplishment and achievement through their work and in their lives.
“Energy and persistence conquer all things.”
Benjamin Franklin

Staying motivated:
True leaders know how to continually keep themselves motivated. Motivation stems from why we do what we do. One of the quickest ways to burn out is to stop doing what we enjoy or losing the buzz from achieving our goals. Here are a few tips:

  • Make time to reflect. If we don’t take time to reflect on what is happening in our lives, what can we learn from these things?

  • Remember to dream. Some people are so caught up in day to day tasks that they forget to dream for the future as a result they do not aspire high enough and far enough. So ask yourself constantly, what do I dream of accomplishing? In my life? In my career?

  • Mirror those who are successful around you. Find role models who live their lives in a manner, to which you aspire to live, lead and fulfill.

  • Retreat. At least once a year (quarterly is better) put aside a day or weekend to review your life and your objectives. Remove yourself from all distractions of a typical day by “retreating” to a location that is inaccessible by phone or e-mail. Consider a mountain cabin, a beach house or any place that’s atmosphere gives you the peace and tranquility needed for true creativity.

  • Mentor someone else. To teach it is to know it. One of the best ways to distill what you know is to share it with others. Helping another person can be just the inspiration to recharge your own batteries.

  • Enjoy the journey. Take a moment each day to be grateful for what you have. Keep a gratitude journal. Share that gratitude with friends, family and business associates. Thank you are beautiful words! Share them often.

“To affect the quality of the day is the highest of art”
Henry Thoreau

Exercised Power With People

  • The single most significant thing a leader can do is get out from behind their desk and discover incidents of achievement.

  • Good leaders are sure to recognize achievement as soon as they become aware of it. They practice the one minute manager.

  • Leaders know they need their employees more than they need them. They are a reflection of their leaders. A leader’s job is to do everything in their power to help them be as successful as they can possibly be. Leaders only succeed when they succeed.

  • True leaders understand that people don’t do dumb things on purpose.

 

“Visionary leaders are those who see the grand view of the future and are able to articulate that vision eloquently to inspire those below them.”
Mark Sandborn

Genuine leaders make things better not just for themselves but for others. Whether it’s a contribution in talent, dollars or recognition leaders give to others.

 

Here’s wishing you success - and remember, geniune leaders are great coaches!
