How many great leaders do you know or have you known? Not many, I’m guessing.
When I think about great leaders I have known they have many things in common. We’ve talked about these traits before in this blog. (They place importance on values like trust, respect and honesty. They act as mentors. They are able to keep their team focused on their mission).
One thing I haven’t touched on is that great leaders ALWAYS lead. Great leaders enact their leadership style into every aspect of their life (business and personal). Whether they are running their business, participating in their industry association, leading their family, or teaching or coaching children, they are LEADING.
It’s not easy to be a leader 24/7. Then again, no one ever said LEADERSHIP was easy.
Do you struggle with being a leader in every aspect of your life? I know I do at times. The next time you’re struggling with some aspect of your life, apply your business leadership principles to it and you’ll succeed.
