The key to successful leadership

Have you always wondered what it takes to be a successful leader? I truly believe it all starts with taking control of your own actions first. From my experience, the key to being a good leader is taking control and responsibility of your own actions. To lead by example means you need to practice what you preach. Aligning your actions with your beliefs is a vital element in order to take leadership over others. Successful leaders love being leaders, because they can create a meaningful impact on people and the world around them.

Practice what you preach

True leaders focus on decision-making and making things happen. Because that is what counts in the end: tangible results! I have had to make difficult decisions in the past, when working in international business environments. But without these decisions, there would not have been a permanent change to the organization.

The needs of others

Did you know that regardless of your title, there is a leader within every one of us?

I believe a good leader has vision and will passionately communicate its vision to motivate others. Clear communication of your vision will inspire your team to take action. The essence of leadership is having a tangible and invigorating vision that will lead to lasting results.

Douglas MacArthur once said: “A true leader has the confidence to stand alone, the courage to make tough decisions, and the compassion to listen to the needs of others. He does not set out to be a leader, but becomes one by the equality of his actions and the integrity of his intent.”

I firmly believe vision, team and results are key elements to turn any company around.
