Not everyone was a born leader, some even acquired the taste with experience. The crucial work of the leader is to build more leaders. We have good, great, ordinary, extraordinary leaders. Different leaders have been observed relying on the core skillset. Mentors should have the courage to keep going, even when the going gets tough, however implementing the same plan always, may not be a good idea. Leaders can sense when to act and change the track for better results. Achieving the desired goal is more important than the plan executed.
The superior who work more productively, they never say ‘I.’ they say ‘we’ And that’s not because they coach themselves that way but because they think of the team. They understand the power of an effectively working group. They recognize the fact that their job is to make the team endeavor. They accept the authority and never bypass the responsibilities. This is what generates trust and enables you to get the job done.
The attributes of an extraordinary leader are discussed below:
They connect hearts:
Leadership is about connecting hearts and they are not afraid to show their obligations. Mostly they care about other people and spend their time with them and add on efforts in the progress of the people around them.
Good leaders like Richard Warke and others have the potential to develop connections with people that are very different from them. And still, even with all these dissimilarities, good leaders are able to associate with them and are able to gain their trust, so much so that, their network co-operate with them in achieving their goals. Vancouver-based Richard Warke, Chairman of Augusta Group is a business executive with more than 35 years of experience in the international resource sector.
They take responsibility:
The mentor is responsible for the success or failure of her team, it’s very saddening that most of the people occupying superior positions today don’t even hesitate to blame others accountable in case of failures.
They don’t limit themselves to set principles, in fact, they are creative people who are always looking for better, faster and more productive ways of getting things done. They challenge every idea and come up with fruitful options to work on.
The leader is responsible for the success or non-success of the team Outstanding leaders love to praise; they praise their team, family & government. On the other hand ordinary leaders tend to criticize. They think that if they complement their subordinates it might reflect their weakness. Hence, they never get satisfied and are unable to perform well whereas the outstanding leaders are people of integrity and genuine character.
The best leaders will do anything for their teams, and they have their people’s backs no matter what, says Travis Bradberry, Award-winning co-author of the best-selling book, Emotional Intelligence 2.0.
Outstanding leaders lead leaders. They are the true warriors who have not only won the battle but have trained other warriors to win. They never leave their people instead they lead without leaving them. They share knowledge cheerfully and they don’t stock their experience to themselves. They love to teach, impart, and impact. They want their adherent to know everything that they know. They are always thinking of the future.
When senior mentors are present, people feel that they are much more involved, that they are working shoulder to shoulder which increases confidence and commitment. This increases confidence, but they must be a part of the long-term action plan. Great leaders live better & successful lives, create better moments, impact more people, believe the best about everyone around them and everything that shapes the future, and eventually make the world a better place.
