Effective leadership is a necessity for any business with the desire to surpass mediocrity. However, what quality characteristics does it take in order to be considered an ADEPT leader?
Simply being a business owner, or having the title of a supervisor, does not automatically represent a leader. An effective leader understands the importance of leading by example. Having such passion for whatever it is they are doing, others want to follow their example.
A leader is someone who understands that just because they might be advanced at something, there is always room to grow. There are two different mindsets that distinguish a leader from a manager.
A manager typically has a fixed mindset. As long as the quota is being met, and employees are doing what they’re told, they believe they are successful. A leader however, possesses a growth mindset, which is always looking for an opportunity to learn, and progress their business.
Leaders challenge others to strive for greatness, but are also humble enough to understand that there is always something to be learned. Leaders take the time to teach others in their business as a team, and don’t get frustrated with others just because they don’t understand everything right away.
Being a leader means to inspire.
At ADEPT, we understand the importance of strong leaders, and it is our goal to help cultivate and develop successful leaders for companies, and individuals, to further gain success.
