What would your life look like if you lived from the perception that your thoughts could change your world? What would it feel like if you knew that every single day you were doing exactly what you were meant to be doing? How would it be to live life from a place where you are true to yourself and not despite of this but because of it, you are living in pure abundance?
That is what it’s like to be a really great leader. And it’s something that everyone can achieve – regardless if you’re a leader in your profession or in your personal life. Mums and dads are leaders too!
Here are 5 values that any great leader live and lead by:
Great leaders represent themselves in a genuine way. Be honest and clear with who you are and what you stand for. Strength of character is a huge part of success!
2. People First
The numbers are important but they mean nothing without the people. Great leaders lead from the heart as they know that leadership is about connecting with people. Focus on the individuals – customers and employees – and people will listen to you.
It’s simple – without integrity you’ve got nothing. Great leaders speak their truth – which is not the same as being rude – and never use words that aren’t in alignment with who they are. Integrity is also following through with what you say you are going to do – don’t make promises you can’t keep.
Great leaders always push the envelope and raise their standards. However, be wise and don’t do this in an attempt to achieve a perceived level of perfection – no human is perfect. We are all a work in progress.
No one becomes a great leader overnight or by chance. Great leadership is a result of disciplined creation. Get clear on what you really want, be committed to what you do and your efforts will be rewarded. That’s a universal law.
Implement and practise these values in your own life and leadership. Don’t postpone living a life where you are true to yourself and of service to others – you’ll get to live the life of your dreams!
