Very few people out of the majority of going to work. A lot of us prefer the newly emerging concept of work from home or work with full online interaction. It is a sad observation that one-third of employees in the U.S are so unhappy and demotivated, that they are thinking of quitting their jobs. People nowadays lack the enthusiasm and curiosity required to do their jobs
That is why it is up to a good leader to boost the team and inspire them to be what they are capable of.
In this article, I highlighted the 10 qualities that all inspiring leaders have. Let us have a look below:
1. Ignite Your Enthusiasm: Inspiring leaders cannot sprung all the enthusiasm into you unless he himself is passionate about his business, and fulfilling customer needs. For example, Steve Jobs was not passionate about computers, but he was extremely fanatical about building tools that help people to discover their personal creativity.
2. Create a Dedicated Team: If you are a good leader, your team should show that. It needs to be committed to you and your business. Successful leaders have the know-how to hire effectively and identify the right individuals for their companies.
3. Know your obstacles: Before reaching that ultimate position of a leader, one needs to know what his long-term obstacles will be, what he and his team are up against, and what his business needs to cope up with in future. A good entrepreneur should have the energy to understand and conquer all the hurdles that will come his way.
4. Believe in your team: Inspiring leaders are inspiring. They must help their team develop confidence and motivation during tough days. According to Forbes, ‘Leaders are dealers in hope.’ It further quotes: ‘Strong Leaders treat their people as 10s, and as a result, they try to perform like 10s.’ They not only have to believe in them but also have to help them win and reach success.
5. Give Credit: In order to motivate your team and make them do better, good leaders give credit where it is due. They know when to encourage their employees for their input and good performance. In this way, your team works with improved results and shows a positive gesture towards company’s success.
6. Stay Calm and composed: An entrepreneur should have the skills to backstop the team from overreacting to short-term situations. Every company starts from the basic and sees difficulties before climbing the ladder of success. Some examples of remarkable companies and brands that were born in difficult times are iPod, GE and Federal Express.
7. They concentrate only the positive thoughts: To take your team out to an impossible road to success, a strong and inspiring leader should always be thinking positive and find reasons to be happy. If he is positively dealing with all the problems at work, his team relying on him will also be encouraged to have a positive surrounding.
8. They are constantly growing: Even if they achieve everything they desire, successful and inspiring leaders never stop learning and adapting new things and cultures. They should have the ability to keep learning new skills and respond to changes in the corporate world.
9. They believe in themselves: As many say, you wouldn’t write off a friend during their bad times or treat them low just because something did not work out for them. Therefore, inspiring leaders treat themselves well, as they treat others. Happiness starts from within. If you want happiness and success in your leadership, be easy on yourself and believe in the decisions you make.
10. Navigate a course of action: Nothing astonishing ever happened without a leader expressing a vision, a course of action. A plan with strong pillars should exist in every leaders’ mind before they begin to start their business. Bold visions create excitement, and the struggle to achieve them inspire evangelists.
