Your Quality as a Great Leader
Calvin Coolidge, the 30th President of the United States was famous for being a man of few words. One Sunday, he went to church without his wife. When he returned home, he said nothing about the service, so his wife prompted him by asking, “What was the sermon about”? Calvin answered: “Sin”. She then asked impatiently “Well, what did the preacher say about sin”? Cal responded, “The preacher was against it”!
Most of the great leaders I’ve personally known and many that I’ve read about could do three things particularly well:
A. They were able to ask the tough questions
B. They were really focused listeners
C. And, like Calvin Coolidge, they were able to express their thoughts in just a few words
Great leaders are also optimistic, they inspire action, they have a high level of integrity, they have confidence in their team and in their organization, they understand how to get things done, and they are smart communicators.
Leaders realize that communication is the glue that binds couples, families, companies, organizations, and communities.
Why not make it a Priority to be the best leader you can be?
All the people that depend on you deserve it!
