  1. 1. Daniel Assouline, the Former Chairman of UpClick, is an Inspirational Leader
  2. 2. Leaders need a vision and a strong sense of purpose to successfully lead their organizations in an increasingly complex and chaotic business environment. Daniel Assouline, the former chairman of Montreal-based UpClick, is a visionary leader with strong communication skills. Leaders, who lack vision, will find it unbelievingly tough to get the best out of their employees. Visionless leaders do not enjoy the complete trust and faith of their employees.
  3. 3. Fortunately, a leader, who had some solid experience, a vision, and the skills to turn that vision into reality, changed things for UpClick. In the following section, we are going to discuss some very important leadership traits or characteristics that a person strongly needs to successfully emerge as a leader.
  4. 4. A person without a vision and a clear cut purpose may find the going incredibly tough. Leaders must provide vision and purpose for the organization and its employees. Lack of purpose will greatly demoralize your workforce, as they will be like a rudderless ship tossing and turning in a highly competitive and everchanging marketplace.
  5. 5. Followers will not put in their best, as they will have no objective or goals to aim and achieve. They will not know what is best for their company nor will they know what is best for them. It, therefore, becomes very important for the leader to get the organization and its employees behind a vision. They need to think strategically and have the foresightedness to understand the future requirements of their target audience. Having a clear vision, however, is only a half job done. The leader must ensure that he has the right resources, investment decisions, and motivated employees along the way to turn that vision into reality.
  6. 6. Daniel Assouline, the former chairman of e- commerce solution provider UpClick, is a visionary leader who has the right amount of attitude and flexibility to energize and enthuse his employees. A relentless worker and a realistic leader, Daniel knows what will work for his organization and its employees. His vision for the future and the ability to plan for achieving that vision is extraordinary. A strategic thinker, he knows how to streamline the energy of his employees to achieve the overall objective of the organization.
  7. 7. This is another very important leadership quality that often separates a performer from a non-performer. People wish to be inspired and will give their best for a leader who possesses the ability to inspire. Inspiring leaders have the ability to communicate clearly the mission and objective of the organization.
  8. 8. They make their followers believe that their organization is there to fulfill an important need of the society. Achievements of goals that the organization has set will result in a better tomorrow for the employees as well as the people it intends to serve. Being inspirational as such is all about showing people the bigger picture and helping them understand that their individual contribution is of utmost importance to complete the overall picture. Motivated employees, who have a better idea of their individual roles and responsibilities, will focus more intensively on contributing to the overall development and growth of the organization.
  9. 9. One truly memorable example of an inspiring leader could be that of legendary Apple CEO Steve Jobs. He lured the vice president of Pepsi into Apple by asking him, “Do you want to sell sugar water for the rest of your life or do you want to change the world?” This example perfectly helps us understand how a truly inspirational leader can help generate motivation by showing people the big picture and helping them respond to their true calling.
  10. 10.  Daniel Assouline, the former CEO of payment processing firm UpClick.com, is a highly charismatic and inspirational leader. A person with intelligence and excellent communication skills, Daniel knows how to connect emotionally with his followers to help them truly understand the importance of their work.  He passionately communicates his vision and this enables him to leave a much stronger imprint on the minds of his followers.
  11. 11. Good Communication Skills You may be a person with a strong sense of purpose, a clear cut vision and a lot of charisma, but the chances of you succeeding are close to cipher, if you lack good communication skills. Leaders must have sound communication skills and the ability to communicate both internally and externally. In this age of social media and globalization, good communication skills are a prerequisite for good leadership.
  12. 12. Leaders of any organization must facilitate both upward and downward communication and be a good listener. This will help them thrive and prosper in a cut throat business environment. Daniel Assouline, the former CEO of UpClick.com, is a leader with strong communication skills and a clear cut vision. A leader with high level of flexibility and innovativeness, Daniel makes continuous effort in developing his own leadership skills as well as promote a culture of unity and cohesiveness in the organization he leads.
