17 Qualities And Views Of Great Leaders 17 Qualities And Views Of Great Leaders Presentation Transcript

  • You Don’t Need a Title To Be a Leader
  • Leadership is about influence, not authority.
  • Think the impossible to realize the maximum possible – Be bold and brave.
  • Fail young, often, and hard – Learn from mistakes, admit them, and stay humble.
  • Exercise tough empathy towards your team – Give them what they need in your opinion, and not necessarily what they want.
  • Be effective and efficient at the same time – Do the right things in the right way.
  • Practice execution as an art – Be focused on making decisions and implement them until the very end in the best possible manner.
  • Embrace a Poet and Peasant approach – Have a strategic mind set and simultaneously don´t mind diving into details and rolling up your sleeves.
  • Stay human, approachable, and show respect – Choose being people-focused over task-focused, even and especially, when push comes to shove.
  • Be resilient and display a can-doattitude – If something does not work, try something else. Be positive and radiate confidence and strength.
  • Over-communicate and you´ll over-perform – Teams, peers, business partners, etc. need clarity and transparency.
  • Recruit, develop and empower the best fitting ones – Make sure that there is a “cultural” and mental fit between company and employees built on a „psychological contract.“
  • Work hard, smart and have fun – No output without input. At the same time you should love and enjoy what you do. Only then you can be highly passionate and committed.
  • Under-promise and overdeliver – Walk your talk.
  • Inspire – Think, behave and communicate beyond pure targets and figures. Stimulate people around you to play and to experiment.
  • Stay true to yourself and your core values – Adapt yourself, if necessary. Never bend yourself. If not, you might break and might lose your heart and soul.
  • Believe in the good – Stay always openminded and curious without being naive.
  • It´s all about the long-term – If needed, forgo and sacrifice short-term profit and benefits for the sake of longterm growth and sustainability.
  • Lead a holistically fulfilled life – Life is much more than work and making career. Spend enough time with family, friends, and loved ones. Relish your hobbies and passions without bad feelings.
