Successful leader

Warren G. Harding (1865-1923)

What makes a successful leader?

Is it getting a good grade in class? Is it showing up for class? What about achieving sales goals? These are all great attributes.

But what do you think is number one on the list? Vision. This is an essential skill. Along with building relationships, people management and execution of the plan, experienced leaders have a vision and are able to communicate it to all levels of their organization.

So, if you’re in a leadership position, it is up to you to help others become successful by teaching them the values so your vision of the future doesn’t stop with you.

Be the leader that inspires others to greatness.

โ€œEvery student has the ability to be a successful learner.”
Warren G. Harding, 29th President of the United States (1921-1923)

    I’ve always found that successful leaders are successful learners. Maybe it is their desire to continuously learn that inspires those around them to do the same.

    A clear, concise, and compelling vision never hurt anyone. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your simple points of information is so great! At times it is a very simple application is all it takes, but as I have gotten older and the places I have been employeed lack great leadership only because the lack of sharing information and even those in leadership are not sure on how to communicate to the team of expectations, the vision and you find that you have frustrated workers becasue they feel like they are stumbling through what is expected of them.

      Shelley, you made my day. And that was from stopping by my little corner of the internet and sharing your thoughts.

      I hope your recent trip around the World was educational, eventful and inspirational. I also hope that you are able to take advantage of a DI course in your future. Your persistence will pay off!
