After four years of college experience, I faced many good, bad experiences that taught me the real meaning of leadership. So, students today going to tell you what Leadership exactly is and how it is different from politics and management and How to become a good leader?
What is Leadership?
Leadership has nothing to do with the title on your business card or size of your office. It doesn’t reflect leadership qualities. According to Robin,
“Leadership is not about how much money you make or the clothes you wear. Leadership is a philosophy. It’s an attitude. It’s a state of mind. And it’s available to each one of us.”
Providing you an example, I spent more of my savings on my shoes and traveling. Recently, I purchased a pair of branded shoes from a showroom in WTP (shopping mall in Jaipur) by spending a good amount on it. The young man at the counter treated me wonderfully. After my tour to Ujjain, accidentally front side of my shoes gets cracked a few months ago. I assumed that I had to pay for the repair when I went back to WTP. Most businesses put clients through so many problems: if you haven’t saved the receipt, your luck is bad. Well WTP is different. They very well understand that there is no business without treating their customers well.
When I explained the shoes get cracked, the young man at the counter without any disinclination, he accepted the shoes. He then said, “We will promise you will have your shoes in perfect order within three days. And of course sir, there will be no charge”. No force for the receipt for the purchase. No, bother. No difficulties. Just excellent service, with a giant beam.
The man showed leadership. He quickly diagnosed the problem, assumed personal responsibility and made the right decision. And he wowed the customer in the process.
The Language of Leadership:
All leaders use a common language which shows leadership qualities to treat their team members. They use the word of Honesty. They speak the language of leadership. They use the language of love. They use the word of confidence.
“Use your job as a chance to impact the world no matter what your job is”
An effective leader never does Pre-judgment. A good leader sees through the eyes of understanding. Their way of communication never changes either condition becomes worst.
Leader as a Creator:
A good leader makes an Inspiring Vision of the Future. They use different ways for their analyses. A team leader must have a clear vision, and it must be shared with others so that they will follow willingly. They provide the information, knowledge, and methods to realize that vision. This shows his leadership qualities.
“Without Patience, there can be no genius.”
A team leader takes the risk, but after gaining of complete knowledge of that thing, he is willing to do.
Team Leader as a Motivator and Inspiring
Without learning and story of failures, there is no success. Almost all great leaders have their inspiring and motivational stories behind their success.
“Fewer Excuses, More Results.
Fewer Distractions, More Focus.
Less Me, More We”
They always believe in working in a team instead of doing alone. And also gives credit to all his staff without any single thought in his mind this shows the leadership qualities. Everyone is easily attracted towards the great personality of a leader.
