When we are born, there is one thing that we bring along with us. What is that? Is it the features, speech or talent? Well, yes we are born with all that but apart from that there is one attribute that is universal, which we call “potential”. As such there are numerous potential types, but the right way to deal with potential is the spur and milieu that extracts it out correctly.
With this way, you can give a glance at all the members of your association as “The potential leaders”. As the owner/ head/ team lead it becomes your responsibility to proffer the stimulus and environment that facilitates the leaders’ potential.
Leadership Traits is the first thing that we are going to talk about. There are many schools of thought that advocate this quality. Leaders tend to hunt for the answers in their environment. Not only do they have an urge to search, but there’s also a keen bent to innovate the findings. So leaders endeavor to find out why things work, but on the same hand also seek to perk them up in order to make them unique.
Leaders must have the capability to influence through persuasion. But this does not essentially imply that each person should have an alluring, verbal approach to persuasion. It connotes that each leader, in his or her own way, will be competent to persuade the populace.
Yet another familiar trait of leaders is the guts to speak out. If the leaders visualize anything that things could be special, they are sure to speak something about it instead of just sitting on that smidgen of information. Leaders also have a sturdy faith and fervor in themselves and in what they and their companies are doing.
These are of course not phenomenal traits and uniqueness. These characteristics are essentially not the ones with which one is born with or not. For instance, if you are brought up in an environment where taking risks was supposed to be foolish, then surely you may not have conviction in yourself. But had the things been different with a different environment, you may never know what wonders you might have done.
Leadership personality can be reared in the right milieu. But how should one learn leadership? You can try that out by being a great observer and emulation. A would-be leader will be on the continuous lookout for someone whom he could ape. While there are some leaders, who learn through trial and error method.
– You can consider thinking about the number of renowned inventors, novelists, and even artists who have been discarded over and over again. But with each refusal, these leaders modified their approach. Leaders become skilled through taking risks. Taking up the risk means a leader will speak out, convince, or just make the transformation that leads to innovation.
The last word, leaders also learn through steady self-development. They are well aware of the fact that erudition and improvement is a lifetime process. It does not come to a stand still when one attains the coveted goal. Leaders are always on the look out for new-fangled ways to improve themselves.
It’s now time to kick those old stereotypes away and step into the shoes of the leader, “The Innovative Warrior”. Leaders are undeniably made and not born. But the upbringing is bound to decide whether the potential leader can build up their geniuses or not.
