  1. 1. Daniel Assouline, the CEO of UpClick.com is Never Afraid of Making Mistakes Daniel Assouline
  2. 2. Daniel Assouline is the CEO of Montreal, Canada-based payment processing firm UpClick.com. A competent and experienced leader, Assouline has been highly successful in developing the business and taking his organization to all new heights. A leader to lead effectively and efficiently must possess some important qualities, traits, and characteristics. These characteristics help them earn trust, respect, and admiration of their subordinates. People follow them due to the trust and respect they have earned and not because they resort to threat and coercion. They have built credibility with their past action and speeches, and people believe in their ability to give them a better tomorrow.  Some of the very important skills a leader must need are as following:
  3. 3. Quick and Correct Decision Making Abilities In this age of cutthroat competition and intense business rivalry, it is important for the person leading a modern organization to be a quick thinker and super efficient decision maker. The competition in the marketplace is intense and more-oftenthan-not the ability to make and take quick decision proves to be the competitive differentiator for the organization. A leader has to have a vision to succeed. This vision, however, will count for little, if you do not have the decision making capability along the way to turn that vision into reality. A superior vision and an effective decision making ability has to be appropriately supplemented by trust, support, and hard work of the employees. Leaders need the active support of their followers to achieve their vision and overall objective and mission of the organization.
  4. 4. They must possess the communication skills to accurately convey what they have in mind and how its fulfillment will lead to the overall growth and development of the organization as well as the employees. Any decision that has been taken needs to be implemented. Leaders who enjoy high level of trust experience no difficulty whatsoever in achieving it. Employees know that all the decisions are made and taken keeping their overall interest in mind and their leader will not do anything that will run contrary to their growth and development.
  5. 5. Good Leaders are not Afraid of Making Mistakes  A life spent making mistakes is not only more honorable, but more useful than a life spent doing nothing. ~ George Bernard Shaw This is one important quality that often separates a performer from a non-performer. The fear of making mistakes often compels many CEOs to avoid taking any decision and any meaningful action to the greatest extent possible. Unsuccessful leaders score high on uncertainty avoidance. They prefer structured situation over non-structured situation, as any type of task or work that deviates even slightly from the routine causes them a high level of stress and anxiety. Successful leaders, on the other hand, are calculated risk takers who are never afraid of failure or making mistakes. This ability to take rules and accept changes helps them in more ways than one.
  6. 6. They become more aware of their limits and their capabilities. They learn valuable life lessons and better understand what they can or cannot do. Leaders who treat mistakes as important learning tools also possess certain very other important leadership qualities. The ability to take on new challenges and take mistakes in their stride makes them compassionate and more forgiving. They realize that everybody cannot be perfect at all the time. True perfection in real world is something that cannot be achieved by human beings in totality. They encourage their employees to look for new ways of doing things with their best intentions and not be afraid of committing mistakes. Daniel Assouline, the CEO of e-commerce solution provider UpClick .com, is a leader who is never dismayed by ambiguity or uncertainty. He firmly believes that mistakes teach you valuable life lessons. He holds the opinion that not making mistakes is often the biggest mistake you can make. He always tells his employees that life is not all about avoiding mistakes, but embracing mistakes and extracting valuable lessons from it.
  7. 7. Problem Solving Skills A modern leader must have high degree of problem solving skills. Leading a modern organization means that you have to face problems of all sizes and types on a daily basis. Leaders with good problem skills prove to be highly effective, as they can solve both internal and external problem with ease. Daniel Assouline the chairman and co-founder of Montreal, Canada based UpClick, is a leader with a high degree of positive attitude. He treats problems as learning opportunities.
  8. 8. Conclusion Leading a modern organization with economic, political, social, legal, and business uncertainty, among other risks is not everybody’s cup of tea. A leader must possess quick decision making and problem solving skills. He/she should be less rule-oriented, take more risks, and more readily accept changes. Daniel Assouline, the CEO of UpClick.com, is a leader who is never afraid of taking on new challenges or making mistakes. He is a continuous learner who believes that every mistake teaches a person some valuable lessons about life.
