Is it easy on the part of each and every one of us to be influential and make people listen to us and follow our way? Mind you! It is definitely not someone’s cup of tea. It requires sheer hard work and presence of innovative ideas within that makes this work. A leader collects all the various demands of the co-workers and puts them into a single picture and then decides to work on them, so as to provide a fruitful outcome or decision. But the most important trait possessed by a true leader is the ability to create a platform wherein all the members come forward with no obligation and jot down their ideas and express themselves.
Leadership is an Art!
Well, it is indeed true! It is an art, which is mastered by very few. And those who master it are the winners in the world. The leadership ability in someone is not just brought up in a while; it is clearly seen in someone right from the very start. We find sheer hard working mentality, headstrong and obstinate in making decisions and mind full of innovative ideas. Being influential relates to the extent of how much the crowd respects you, respect your ideas and give a thumbs up to your decisions, it takes a lot to be a true leader.
“Leadership is not about titles, positions, or flow charts. It is about one life influencing another.”
― John C. Maxwell
How the True Leader makes the Innovative Ideas Work?
What are the important steps or methodologies involved while reaching to a desirable decision? Well, the factors include support from each and everyone, proper management and most importantly all the innovative ideas must come from people without any pressure from anywhere. Proper leadership requires calmness in every situation. All the given opinions must be duly listened to and then considered if they are good or not. No doubt a true leader has to possess authority, but that authority should be in a very polite manner, in which the crowd has simply no issues going against him.
“Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.”
― Peter F. Drucker
Treating the Group as Primary rather than anything else!
A true leader ought to realize the fact that there is nothing more important than the group of which he is made the leader; all the other things are secondary. He must make up his mind to welcome everyone with open arms and treat them with utmost respect so as to obtain the very best of innovative ideas.
The End Note: Sheer Hard Work Makes Leadership Work
It is crystal clear that the ability to lead is certainly an art. Sheer hard work, commanding attitude, respect for the faithful, being influential are the very tools required in this task of leading something or some group. If one satisfies these quite well, then innovative ideas are bound to get explored and the group’s respect for the true leader just keeps elevating!
