Direct sales and marketing experts, Gold Vibes, discusses three ways of cultivating your leadership potential, the Birmingham based company believe that you need to accept being uncomfortable to improve your leadership potential.
You can’t be a successful entrepreneur or leader if you are afraid of being uncomfortable, it is a reality you are going to have to come to terms with if you want to grow as a leader within business and life on the whole.
The firm’s three suggested ideas for cultivating your leadership potential are:
Accept being uncomfortable:
It’s important to place yourself in positions that force you to stretch beyond your normal levels, to improve and develop new skills. It’s important to throw yourself in the deep end, whether that be at a networking event or taking control of a meeting in front of the entire office. Stop limiting your beliefs on acquiring new skills, knowledge and approaches to leadership. Leaders need to be comfortable with being uncomfortable because through personal and professional challenges there are so many opportunities to grow.
Become confident in delegating tasks:
To be a great leader, you need to be willing to accept the share of responsibility of the company with others. Leaders need to loosen the reigns and trust others effectively. Micro-Management doesn’t help anyone. Those that openly delegate tasks can often inspire others to levels of leadership. Leaders must be willing to empower others to reach their full potential by trusting them to assist in a way that will bring the company forward. A confident leader is one that knows and completely accepts they are not a one-man band and can’t do everything themselves.
Understand who the best you are:
Being a leader in a company can often be challenging at times, but despite all the ups and downs and indirect criticisms, you must be willing to put the company first by committing to its goals and in the process becoming the best leader you can be. You must show a high level of commitment to the company; lead by example in a way you want employees to replicate as well as exciting leadership potential.
Leaders will often dedicate themselves entirely to their work and contributions despite many hurdles and issues that are going to be thrown their way. Nothing in life nor business comes without its hardships; we have the choice whether to empower obstacles to build or destroy our character.
