Are You a Poor or Great Leader?


Being a great leader is important because you give the organization direction and inspire people to work toward a common vision. Here are some of the things that separate great leaders from poor ones.
1.) Poor leaders blame others for their mistakes and enjoy seeing others make mistakes. Great leaders focus on what others do right, own their mistakes, and don’t make excuses. They recognize their own weaknesses and work to rise above them. Great leaders recognize the good things that others bring to the organization and give people praise.
2.) Poor leaders are negative. Great leaders are positive. Constant negativity and criticism are counterproductive; an important thing that a leader can do is be solution-oriented instead of problem-oriented. If you look for and focus on the good, you will see more of it!
3.) Poor leaders take credit for what others have done. Great leaders recognize others. They share and offer recognition and rewards. Everyone desires to feel acknowledged and appreciated, and receiving a great leader’s acknowledgment can be one of the very best rewards your people can get. These three steps can put you on the path to becoming a great leader. You will know that you have become a great leader when people follow you because they want to, not because they have to!!!
