Can you learn to be a Successful Leader?

Great leaders are not made, they're born.

At least, that's what some people think.

But is it really that simple? Does your DNA determine your leadership skills? And if you're not a "natural born leader", can you learn to lead?

Many experts will report that leadership is a combination of both genetic and environmental influences. And while this might be somewhat true, this is only a small part of the picture.

It's like riding a bike. Most people can ride a bicycle, but not everyone can be Olympic winners. It's the same with management and leadership.

I believe that you can coach and develop the skills for successful leadership, regardless of whether you are a leader of your own business, a team, or just yourself.

A great leader needs to have 3 things.

What It Takes to be a Great Leader:

So while leadership is definitely something that can be learned, I have found there are 3 things leaders must have if they want to be successful.

1. Understanding – Self –awareness is key and you need to have a clear understanding of yourself, what’s important to you and why, as well as what holds you back.

2. Clarity – Clarity is Power. You need to have a crystal clear vision of what you want and what direction you are going. Without this, you will lack the drive and motivation to move forward.

3. Accountability – We all need to be accountable to do what we say we are going to do. Research has shown that you are 95% more likely to accomplish your goals when you are accountable to someone else (i.e. a coach). Accountability helps us stay motivated, focused and on track of our goals and inspired to continue moving forward.

Are You on Track for Success?

Can you see the big picture? Does accountability get lost? If so, it’s time to get clear on what you want, the direction you’re going and what you need to do in order to get there.  If you’re not currently working with a coach, I invite you to contact me for a complimentary assessment and let’s get started on your path to success.  I’m looking forward to hearing from you.
