What makes a leader great 1

  1. 1. What makes a Leader GREAT ? Entrepreneurship & Leadership
  2. 2. Class Activity  Brainstorming session  What do you think are the qualities of a good leader.
  3. 3.  The word “leader” makes you think of people in charge. High-ranking people – your boss, politicians, presidents, CEOs…  But leadership really isn’t about a particular position or a person’s seniority. Just because someone has worked for many years doesn’t mean he has gained the qualities and skills to lead a team.  Getting promoted to a managerial position doesn’t automatically turn you into a leader.  Leadership skills enable you to be a role
  4. 4. Focus…  To be a good leader, you cannot major in minor things.  You must be less distracted than your competition.  To get the few critical things done, you must develop incredible selective ignorance.
  5. 5. What you can do to be focus  Importance and Urgency Grid
  6. 6. Confidence…  Confidence is important because people will be looking to you on how to behave, particularly if things aren’t going 100% right.  If you remain calm and poised, team members are far more likely to as well. As a result, morale and productivity will remain high and the problem will be solved more quickly.  If you panic and give up, they will know immediately and things will simply go down hill from there.
  7. 7. What you can do to be confident  You can’t instantly become a very confident person, but all the small things you do every day will gradually make you more confident.  List 10 things you like about yourself every day (something different every day), and you’ll be more confident about yourself.  Work on your strengths, do your best in them.
  8. 8. Stay Positive  Great leaders know that they won’t have a happy and motivated team unless they themselves exhibit a positive attitude. This can be done by remaining positive when things go wrong and by creating a relaxed and happy atmosphere in the workplace.  Even in the worst situations such as experiencing low team morale or team members having made a big mistake at work, a great leader stays positive and figure out ways to keep the team motivated to solve the problems.
  9. 9. What you can do to be positive  Break down huge challenges into smaller ones and find ways to tackle them one by one.  Think about the lessons you can learn from the mistake and jot them down. (Because sometimes you win, sometimes you learn!)
  10. 10. Learn from Setbacks/Mistakes  No matter how hard you try to avoid it, failures will happen.  Great leaders take them in strides. They remain calm and logically think through the situation and utilize their resources.  What they don’t do is fall apart and reveal to their team how worried they are, which leads to negative morale, fear and binge-drinking under desks.  Great leaders do in fact lead, even when they’re faced with setbacks.
  11. 11. What you can do to learn from setbacks  Make use of 5 Whys to dig out the root cause of any problems. By asking “why” for 5 times (or more) on why something happened, you can find out the key factor that caused the problem and can find the best solution to tackle the problem.  You’ll also learn how to prevent this from happening again in the future after finding out a problem’s root cause.
  12. 12. Listen and Give Feedback  Good communication skills are essential for a great leader.  The best leaders need to be able to communicate clearly with the people around them.  They also need to be able to interpret other people properly and not take what they say personally.
  13. 13. What you can do to be a good listener  Encourage communication between team members and establishing an open door policy.  Practice not to interrupt team members when they’re talking.  Summarize what they say and ask for feedback every time after you have talked about your ideas.
  14. 14. Delegate work and have confidence in your team  No matter how much you might want to, you can’t actually do everything yourself.  Delegating to others shows that you have confidence in their abilities, which subsequently results in higher morale in the workplace, as well as loyalty from your staff.  They want to feel appreciated and trusted.
  15. 15. How you can delegate work  List out all of their strengths, weaknesses and personalities.  Talk with your team members more too to know more about their passion and interests.
  16. 16. Inspire and Grow People Around  Any good leader knows how important it is to develop the skills of those around them.  Knowing strengths will make work easier for team and let them grow and foster morale.  In addition, they may develop some skills that you don’t possess that will be beneficial to the workplace.  Great leaders share their knowledge with the team and give them the opportunity to achieve. This is how leaders gain their respect and loyalty.
  17. 17. How to inspire and develop skills of team  Spend time to talk with other team members individually to understand them.  Find out team members’ current challenges and try to give feedback and encouragement so they will grow and do better.
  18. 18. Take Responsibility and don’t blame others  Great leaders know that when it comes to their company, work place or whatever situation they’re in, they need to take personal responsibility for failure.  The best leaders take the blame and then work out how to fix the problem as soon as possible.  This proves that they’re trustworthy and possess integrity.
  19. 19. What you can do to take responsibility  Ask yourself what you could have done better to prevent this from happening.  Take the responsibility and think about what you can do better to prevent this from happening next time.
  20. 20. Lead by Example and Be Committed to goal  Great leaders stick to their commitments and promises, and they are the most committed and hard working ones on the job.  All great leaders lead by example.  By proving your own commitment, great leaders will inspire others to do the same, as well as earn their respect and instill a good work ethic.
  21. 21. What you can do to lead by example  Dedicate time to demonstrate your work to team members, let them observe how you do it.  Summarize the skills you use and let team members know how you make difficult things work.
