As a good leader you have to guard against the human natural bent such as selfish, greedy and dishonest. Asking yourself questions to help you define reality isn’t enough. You have to do more. Here are four practices to help you to become better leader.
Admit Your Weakness
Try to train yourself by voice weakness such as “I am an alcoholic‚ÄĚ,” I must confess to others, “I am an unrealistic person.” Admitting my weakness is a first step toward recovery. You can’t define reality if you won’t face reality. As a good leader, it is important to know where is time to get help from other to solve the problem for great of good.
Embrace Realistic People
The old saying “birds of a feather flock together” is really true. Normally people like to be around people who are like them. That may be a good thing when they want to have fun, but it can be a bad thing when you want to lead well. As a leader, you need peo¬≠ple to complete yourself, to be strong where you are am weak. An effective leadership team has members who complement one another.
One of the leaders that popular is Winston Churchill, England’s prime minister who stood up against the Nazis during World War II. He was a leader’s leader! He once remarked, “In every age there comes a time when a leader must come forward to meet the needs of the hour. Therefore, there is no potential leader who does not have an opportunity to make a positive difference in society. Tragically, there are times when a leader does not rise to the hour.”
What determines whether a leader emerges to meet the challenge of the hour? More to the point, what will determine whether you will step for¬≠ward to successfully meet the challenges you face? The determination factor is how you handle certain critical moments in your life. These moments will define who you are as a person and as a leader.
