Becoming a great leader.
What are the qualities of a great leader?
Leaders look to others first, they know that while they are capable of doing many things, they are also able to allow someone with a skill greater than their own to perform and excel.
Leaders Love their job.
Leaders Love their team.
They wake up with passion.
Work with all your heart.
They write down goals.
They do what needs to be done, regardless of the task.
They don't mind getting dirty.
They are humble.
They are approachable.
They discuss with their team to help everyone grow together.
They know what motivates them.
Who is a great leader? Gordon Morton Sr. said, “Watch what the masses do. And DON'T do it!”
Leaders can separate themselves, we can all strive to become better, and : “be willing to work like no one else will, so that one day we can Live like no one else can.”
Do not follow where the path may lead.
Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.
Harold R. McAlindon
Go to the people. Learn from them. Live with them. Start with what they know. Build with what they have. The best of leaders when the job is done, when the task is accomplished, the people will say we have done it ourselves.
