Lean Quote: 7 Traits of a Leader

On Fridays I will post a Lean related Quote. Throughout our lifetimes many people touch our lives and leave us with words of wisdom. These can both be a source of new learning and also a point to pause and reflect upon lessons we have learned. Within Lean active learning is an important aspect on this journey because without learning we can not improve.

"You don't need a title to be a leader.  —  Mark Sanborn

Anyone can be a leader by doing their best and setting a good example. Leaders believe in themselves, their vision, and their ability. They do what is necessary to seek out greatness in themselves and others. Here are some more key traits of top leaders:

They Are Self-Motivated.

Leaders not only know how to drive others to succeed; they also know how to drive themselves to get things done so that they may become successful as well. 

Setting definite goals helps leaders stay motivated at all times. The motivation a leader has can directly impact and inspire their team. 

They Have a Positive Attitude.

Great leaders overflow with an abundance of positivity. The positive disposition they have is contagious and helps to inspire a positive mindset in others. 

They Are Emotionally Stable. 

Stress and frustration are common things that come with leadership positions. Good leaders cannot allow themselves to let their emotions knock them off track.

Instead, they must have strong and stable emotions so they can continue on, even in difficult circumstances. 

They Exude Self-Confidence.

People are more likely to believe in you if you believe in yourself. This is why it is essential for leaders to have self-confidence that shines through.

Only someone who exudes self-confidence can influence others and earn their respect. 

They Are Decisive.

Leaders often have to make decisions. Some of the decisions may be difficult and require a great deal of critical thinking.

They know how to make decisions, and they stick to their decisions because they are confident enough to believe they made the right choice. 

They Are Accountable and Responsible.

Playing the blame game isn't something that true leaders do. Rather they take responsibility for their actions, tasks, and the results they get. 

If a mistake is made, they remain accountable and admit their faults readily with little prodding from outside sources. 

They Are Passionate.

Passion is made up of expression, energy, and activity. Passion plays a part in the drive and zeal a leader has.

Good leaders are excited about what they are doing, and they express that passion in front of others.
