When it comes down to it, a leader helps us reach our goals. Sometimes they even help us reach their goals.
Some leaders do it in different ways... but the result is the same. Get a group of people to follow your lead and get something done.
I know that might sound simpler than you thought... but in general, that's what leaders do.
Obviously, some leaders are great at this... others, not so much.
So what makes successful leaders stand out from the failures? To answer that, let's ask another question...
Which leaders inspire YOU?
I'm sure we can all think of a few leaders who inspire us in life. Take a second to think about it.
What makes these leaders stand out to you?
Think of their skills. Their personality traits. What pops into your mind? Maybe you're thinking about your parents, or one of your teachers that told you they believe in you.
Well, these are the skills we're gonna take a look at together.
Obviously we don't have enough time to dive into every leadership skill under the sun - don't you worry ;)
But we do have a pretty good idea of what makes the best leaders tick. So we came up with 10 life-changing leadership skills that show up in most of the world's greatest leaders.
Hear me out here. These skills aren't just great for leadership.... they're great for everyday life!
It doesn’t even matter if you want to lead or not.
If you do want to be a leader someday, then awesome - these 10 skills will rock your world.
But even if you could care less about leading, I promise these skills'll still help you do anything you put your mind to and win.
They're qualities we think everyone should have.
Alright, enough talking. Let's get to the list!
Drumroll please.............. here they are:
- Positive Attitude
- Ability to Delegate (don't know what "delegate" means? No worries, we'll break it down for you).
Okay, so think about the first question we asked you earlier. We asked you which leaders inspire you... remember?
Now think about the leaders that popped into your mind, and try to figure out which skills they have from the list above.
I'll bet they checked off most of those skills... if not all of them.
Now think about your life. How do you think these skills can help you reach your goals?
Stick around for the next section, cause we'll go through each skill, talk about a leader who had that skill, and share how you can apply that skill to YOUR life.
