If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more, and become more, you are a leader. ~John Quincy Adams
Over the decades, many companies could not compete with global competition. Among the ones that did succeed, most could not sustain their position in the market.
Leaders like Steve Jobs, Elon Musk, and Warren Buffet, with their vision, unshakable determination, and persistent hard work, led their respective companies to great heights. With their belief and strong leadership qualities, they gave a new dimension to the world of business.
This blog, though, is not about them but about the good leadership qualities that help people make their company great, achieve greatness, and bring new transformations in the world.
Before deep-diving into the leadership qualities, let’s understand leadership in brief.
What is Leadership?
According to John Maxwell, ‘Leadership is influence – nothing more, nothing less.’
Warren Bennis called it the capacity to translate vision into reality.
If you google the term ‘Leadership,’ you will find endless leadership definitions by the great minds and leaders. After working with some good leaders and being in a leadership position myself, the understanding I have developed is that leadership can influence the crowd to believe, act, and work with perseverance to meet the greater good.
Being a good leader is not a cakewalk. One must possess effective leadership qualities that help them achieve higher goals and objectives. Be it resistance and persistence of Mahatma Gandhi or the vision of Elon Musk.
