The eight behavioural traits of successful leaders

As a result of a leadership think tank it was pointed out that it is imperative to separate those leadership behaviour traits that need to be in your DNA from those skills that can be learnt. In the thinktank we came up with eight behaviour traits that need to be in your DNA and fifteen skills that can be learnt.

The good news is that behaviour traits can be changed if the leader is committed.  It takes up to twelve weeks working on one behaviour change, every week, until the “penny drops” and it becomes an automatic response.

The eight behaviour traits of success leaders are:

People focused traits 1.    Integrity and honesty
2.    “Love thy neighbour as thyself”
3.    Self-awareness and self-regulation
Execution traits 4.    Abundance of positive energy
5.    Decision making and risk taking
6.    Seeing future opportunities
Handling change traits 7.    Ability to excel in a crisis
8.    Learning agility

First read my article on leadership in an era of distraction and then find out more by buying the leadership toolkit called “Winning Leadership- a Viking with a Mother’s Heart” .  My book “The Leading –Edge Manager’s Guide to Success” covers more management processes and successful work habits.  Both these resources will help you on your journey toward becoming an extraordinary manager and leader.

The time management barrier

Many of us today have frustrating long commutes, are constantly sleep deprived, are addicted to responding to Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Instagram as well as binging on a box set or two.  To make matters worse now, once in the office, we are subjected to far too many meetings, scheduled across the day that go nowhere quickly.  Everyday pressures of modern life leads us toward the belief that we cannot cope as there is not enough time in the day.

I believe my research on the topic will help you reclaim time.  Read this extract from my working guide “Time is on my side, yes, it is”.  Then, buy the full working guide.

What makes a good leader

“What makes a good leader?” I was asked across a dinner table. To answer this you need to understand what makes a serving leader. How do you obtain the qualities and character that make people want to follow you over the top of the trenches? I have been exploring leadership for some time. As a disciple of Peter Drucker I have read most of his work, and I have spent much time interpreting the exploits of modern-day leaders such as Jack Welch former CEO of General Electric and comparing their styles to historic leaders such as Sir Winston Churchill, Horatio Nelson, and Sir Ernest Shackleton.
