The Top 7 Important Leadership Traits and Skills for Success

A good leader…

Inspires and motivates others

People wants to work for a company that makes a difference in the world. A good leader regularly helps the members of her team connect to the vision and connect what they do to the impact it has on customers and communities.

Displays high integrity and honesty (always)

Great leaders are honest and transparent, and have high integrity–they do what they say they are going to do, and they ‘walk the talk.’ This is how they build respect.

Is a problem-solver with good people skills

Ultimately, leaders are recruited, trained, and chosen to solve organizational problems, and to take advantage of opportunities in the marketplace. This requires excellent analytical abilities and also above-average people skills.

Drives for results

Some people are happy to sit back and watch the world go by. Great leaders have a higher level of perseverance, stick-to-itiveness, and drive than most anyone else, and they can be counted on to get things done.

Develops others

The best leaders set aside time (and money in their budgets) to develop their workforce. They look for the most promising employees, and provide them with the training they need to become their company’s next generation of great leaders.

Communicates powerfully

Great leaders communicate with their people often, and in a variety of different ways. Whatever the medium they use, leaders don’t talk about communicating–they just do it.

Builds relationships

A good business is built on a solid foundation of relationships and trust. A good leader takes time every day to build relationships with the members of the team, customers and vendors, boss, their network, others in the industry, and the community.

How to Get ‘Unstuck’ and Move Your Business Forward

It’s easy to get stuck in the business and day to day activities and feel like you don’t have enough time to focus on the rest. You may be keeping your head down, but you’ll want to continue growing as an individual and improving your skills set in order to continue to grow your business.

We’ve all been there… stuck in the grind. Chances are, you might even be there right now. Here are a few areas to start getting yourself unstuck and moving forward.

Without a doubt, one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your business is to continue to improve your skill set around the most important aspects of your business. Whether that’s improving leadership skills, focusing on sales, marketing, or improving your own personal development. Whatever it is, you need to identify the right areas and continue to focus and strive for how you can get better.

First, are you doing the right activities during your time or are you filling your time with the wrong activities? Always remember that 70% of your time should be spent on sales, marketing and money-making activities. If you’re not spending enough time there, re-focus on what you’re doing and how you can restructure it.

Next, are you using the right tools and resources around you? It’s easy to get caught up in your own world, to get stuck or to get overwhelmed at times. When this happens, ask yourself, am I doing everything I need to be doing? Evaluate your answers to these questions:

  • Where am I now?
  • Where do I want to go?
  • Am I using the resources around me to get where I want to go?

Make sure you do a regular check in to see how everything is going. Am I using the right things around me as best as I can?

Finally, look at how to improve the current things you’re doing. The entire reason for building your skill set in other areas is that it makes life easier for you in these different areas. Look at what you’re doing and segment your activities based on whether they’re revenue generating activities or not. If they’re not, your next step is seeing how you can systemise them and outsource or delegate to someone else. Remember your aim is to spend 70% of your time in this area.

The trick to getting unstuck is to recognise when you’re there and immediately take the right steps to move forward. Now go for it!
