LEADERSHIP
“Leadership is having a vision, sharing that vision and inspiring others to
support your vision while creating their own.”
-Mindy Gibbins-Klein
“Leadership is influencing others by your character, humility and
example. It is recognizable when others follow in word and deed without
obligation or coercion.”
-Sonny Newman
“Leadership is inspiring others to pursue your vision within the
parameters you set, to the extant that it becomes a shared effort, a shared
vision and a shared success.”
-Steve Zeitchik
CONCEPT OF LEADERSHIP
•Good leaders are made not born. If you have the
desire and willpower, you can become an effective
leader. Good leaders develop through a never
ending process of self-study, education, training,
and experience .
•To inspire your workers into higher levels of
teamwork, there are certain things you must be,
know, and, do. These do not come naturally, but
are acquired through continual work and study.
Good leaders are continually working and
studying to improve their leadership skills; they
are NOT resting on their past laurels.
LEADERSHIP SKILLS
Self-motivation:
Motivated leaders desire to achieve above and beyond expectations.
This comes from their passion, pride and desire to become better
and the motivation to do things better than everyone else.
To succeed as a leader, you need to be motivated, and no one else
can do that for you except your self.
Strategic Thinking:
In order to think two steps ahead, leaders need to develop a long-
term mindset, using research to make decisions and take time to
reflect on your decisions.
Organizing:
You can’t sail your ship if you don’t know where the sail is,
likewise, you can’t run your business if you aren’t organized.
Leaders know that value in keeping their personal and professional
things (both physical and electronic) in order.
LEADERSHIP SKILLS
Positivity:
Where others might think a project or task is too difficult, leaders face those
challenges with energy and positivity.
Manage setbacks/uncertainty:
After any failure, big or small, you usually have two options: give up or find a
better way. Leaders know when it’s time to double down and when it’s time to
fold, they manage uncertainty by making thoughtful decisions on next steps.
Intuition:
Intuition is to art as logic is to math. Leadership is often about following your gut
instinct. It can be difficult to let go of logic in some situations, but uncertainty
and risk are a natural in business. Learn to trust your self and not everyone else.
Assertiveness:
It’s important to make sure your voice is heard as a leader, but in a constructive,
helpful way.
You need to get your point across clearly, and involve your self in the day-to-day
operations of key team members.
Look out for opportunities to collaborate and trust your team to make important
decisions.
LEADERSHIP SKILLS
Decision Making:
Making good decisions involves generating good alternatives and
analyzing each option diligently.
Accountable:
Being accountable means that you accept responsibility for the
outcomes expected of you, both good and bad. You don’t blame
others. And you don’t blame things that were out of your control.
Until you take responsibility, you are a victim. And being a victim is
the exact opposite of being a leader. Great leaders take initiative to
influence the outcome and take responsibility for the results.
Discipline:
Discipline in leadership is less about punishing and rewarding
others, but rather having self-control, inner calm and outer resolve.
LEADERSHIP SKILLS
Time management:
Great leaders know that time is their most valuable asset.
Leaders need to know how to effectively plans their time by
knowing when and where to spend it; on your self, your business
and family/friends.
Public speaking / Speaking skills:
Leaders should not have any issues with speaking in front of
crowds.
Ability to teach:
Leaders need to be able to share the methodologies and processes
that make their business run with the people they work with and
hire. If your managers are poorly trained, your staff will be
poorly trained and it will reflect in your sales and operations.

to reward and motivate your team members for their input, especially when they
go above and beyond.

Listening:
Most people are waiting for their turn to speak, great leaders listen first,

the lives of the people around them.
LEADERSHIP STYLES
A leadership style is a leader’s style of providing direction,
implementing plans and motivating people. There are
many different leadership styles that can be exhibited by
leaders in the political, business or other fields. Four main
styles of leadership are:
LEADERSHIPSTYLES
Authoritarian: The leader tells his followers what to do and how to do it,
without getting their advice.
Paternalistic: It’s a managerial approach that involves a dominant, male
father figure who takes complete charge of the employees, his
subordinates, in an organization. In return, employees show their
trust, loyalty and obedience.
Democratic: The leader includes one or more employees in the decision
making process, but the leader normally maintains the final decision
making authority.
LAISSEZ-FAIRE: The leader allows the employees to make the decisions,
however, the leader is still responsible for the decisions that are
made.
LEADERSHIP MYTHS
•Following are the most common myths of leadership:
Leaders have more education than others:
Educational degrees may mean that you have a good education, but
it doesn’t necessarily mean that you are a good leader.
The best leaders are extroverts:
Being an introvert or an extrovert determines how one recharges.
Introverts recharge alone while extroverts recharge by being with
others. There are no studies that suggest recharging one way or the
other makes you a better leader. The main point is to find a way to
recharge regularly to avoid burnout.
Leaders are born with the instinct to lead:
Some people want to lead, but that doesn’t make them great leaders.
Great leadership is a lifetime goal; you do not become a great leader
overnight.
LEADERSHIP MYTHS
Leaders work smarter, not harder:
Leaders also work hard, like any other in an organization.
Leaders are to control:
Leaders are not to control but, to manage and organize people for the
accomplishment of the goal.
