7 Key Leadership Ingredients

While reading The Takeaway by Pat and Karyn Williams, I came across a really good summary of what leadership is all about. I think these 7 ingredients are essential in an effective leader.

  1. Vision: Leadership is always about the future.
  2. Communication: Leaders have to spread their vision. The do that by communicating optimism, hope, inspiration, and motivation.
  3. People skills: Outstanding leaders care about others.
  4. Character: Honesty, integrity, respect, humility.
  5. Competence: Leaders are good at what they do, always working on improving their skills
  6. Boldness: Leaders have to make decisions. More harm is done by no decision, than a wrong decision.
  7. A Serving Heart: “It’s not about you.”

Be happy with what you have

Don’t complain. Just do it. Be happy with what you have. We all have our own talents. Let’s use them to the fullest potential. My advice: find your talents, and utilize them to the fullest potential.

Each one of us is unique. We all have our own talents. You might be second guessing yourself. Don’t. You might be bad in some things, but great with others. I know that’s how I am. And I don’t really care.

Sure, my wife would like me to be somebody else. I would love to be like somebody else sometimes. But I am not. I am who I am. I accept that and I’m happy with it. I spend time on things I like to do.
