Leaders display 9 identifiable behaviours in their relationships, work & personal lives!

By Dr Henry Gloud

You, too, can learn this pattern of leadership behaviours and responses, even if it doesn’t come naturally to you.

Identify your hidden desires, dreams and potential.

Don’t hide from the desire to reach your full potential and take the necessary risks to pursue your dreams.

Don’t accept negativity. Direct your energy toward actions that trigger hope. 

Deal with negative issues head-on, rather than avoiding them. Avoidance will only make situations more painful and difficult to tackle later. Stop investing your time and energy in a project, goal or relationship that was once important to you, but now triggers negative feelings.

Consider the future implications of your actions 

Think beyond immediate causes and effects.

Conjure an ideal version of your future. Plot the actions you have to take to achieve it in reality.

Work to improve difficult situations, even when they are not your responsibility 

When skilled leaders face difficult situations, they seek solutions, even if they’re not to blame for the difficulties.

Achieve your biggest dreams through a series of incremental steps 

To achieve big goals, take small steps over time. Focus on the incremental steps you can take to reach your goals.

What you hate shapes your character as a leader, so choose wisely 

Hate can protect you, prompting you to get rid of threats to the things you love and to safeguard the things you value. Clarify your values.

Forget fairness; give back more than you receive

You need more than fairness to create lasting business partnerships. In strong partnerships, people don’t keep a tally of what they get versus what they give. They offer more than they receive.

Stop telling self-aggrandizing stories; practice humility instead

Don’t pretend you accomplished more or are more impressive than you are. Embrace humility: apologize to people when you fail them; rid yourself of defensiveness and attitudes of entitlement; be considerate of people working below you in the corporate hierarchy; and learn from your mistakes.

Don’t let your fear of others’ reactions control you

Make choices based on what you believe is right, not on who may or may not get angry. Don’t let your desire to win approval influence your decisions. You can’t please everyone, so focus on upsetting the right critics.

It is possible to see a constant but marked improvement in health whenever even a bit of a amount of losing weight is accomplished.

  • Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

  • Thanks for your short article. I would also love to say that the health insurance agent also utilizes the benefit of the coordinators of a group insurance. The health insurance broker is given a listing of benefits needed by anyone or a group coordinator. What a broker really does is find individuals or coordinators which often best fit those wants. Then he offers his suggestions and if both sides agree, the actual broker formulates a binding agreement between the two parties.
