There are some habits successful people have inculcated that make them so successful as leaders. So, what are those habits?
1. They are open to change.
If you don’t open up to change, either you are left behind in the crowd or someone else will take your place. They are never stagnant. They are the ones who come up with new processes.
2. They are confident.
Confidence is the key to leadership. They are confident because they do their homework right. They are well aware of the capabilities of the team and take decisions based on those capabilities rather than shooting the breeze.
3. They are simple and to the point.
They are great managers of time. They stick to the crux of things rather than beating around the bush.
4. They don’t compete with others.
They know that the race is not with others but with our own self – to become better each day. They are not messed up in their mind or jealous of others.
5. They Absorb Negativity.
They know the difference between empathy, sympathy and apathy. By absorbing negativity, they make sure the team continues to evolve each day, and does not get stuck in the rut.
6. They love making mistakes.
To err is human. And successful leaders are also human. They do make mistakes. But, the way in which they are different from others is in the way they tackle those mistakes. Rather than getting demotivated from mistakes, they learn from them.
Like the famous quote by Edison goes, “I did not fail 1000 times at making a bulb. I just found a 1000 ways that don’t work.” It’s always about how we look at things. Successful people are always looking for the positive side of things rather than getting stuck in the rut of negativity.
