What makes a great leader? Through various leadership experiences, I’ve narrowed it down to three main principles:
“Great leaders have the vision of where to go, the knowledge of how to get there, and the inspiration to motivate others to follow” – Mark Wiese, 2011
Regardless of your personal or political affiliations, both Martin Luther King Jr. and John F. Kennedy will forever be studied by students as two of the best leaders who could successfully integrate vision, knowledge, and inspiration. Both of these historic men led with their hearts, we can all follow that lead as a great starting place.
Sounds easy, right?
You probably already have all three of these principles locked away in your mind; the trick is in communicating them. Properly communicating your vision, sharing your knowledge, and inspiring your team; these all require you, as a leader, to foster a culture that supports the sustainment of your core products and services while also encouraging the innovation and creativity needed for continual improvement.
This takes effort, and it must come from the top of your organization, or from the top tier of the sub-team you are leading within a larger group. Leading your team already comes with challenges; you need to assure you are accurately delivering your products/services, you need to spend time with customers, you need to get exposure to new businesses, you also need to stay abreast of the latest trends in your market.
