A Successful Leader’s Characteristics!

Plenty of information has been written about leaders and what makes them successful. A successful leader will exhibit many characteristics, traits and actions that will cause others to follow them. Why? Because they see something in them worth following.

Here are a few thoughts on what I believe are key to a successful leader.

  • Lead because you want to
  • Lead with compassion and truth
  • Deliver a message that inspires and motivates
  • Live by the code others will emulate
  • Provide a vision for the future. Offer hope
  • Provide those you lead a chance to shine
  • Make other people feel important and appreciated
  • Live a life of integrity. Not only by words, but by your actions as well
  • Set the standards others are willing to follow
  • Cultivate the talents of those you lead
  • Continuously learn and educate others
  • Create an environment of constant development
  • Set the pace through your expectations and example
  • Provide opportunities for people to grow, both personally and professionally
  • Care and act with compassion
  • Everyone has potential. Look beyond their short comings

Remember! Just because you have a title doesn’t make you a leader
