Leaders are Made not Born

We have always heard that being the boss is not the same as being the leader, even less a good leader. From time to time, in the business world, people face sudden challenges such as being promoted to a top position where it is necessary to manage many people or a startup owner who is growing faster. Under this situation, the leader has more areas and numerous employees to manage, and they require specific skills, far from giving orders and making decisions. This position needs leaders; our headline statement is “leaders are made, not born.”

First, it is essential to highlight the task of any leader: “lead a person to achieve their goals in exceptional ways”; the main question is, how to become a great leader?

  • Identify your leadership style. Not all leaders act in the same way. You must point out your stronger areas and use them as a spearhead, observe your opportunity areas and work on them.
  • Priorities and delegate. As a leader, you should learn to classify the importance of the task and transmit it properly to your team.
  • Be empathetic. Recognize every team member as a unique professional, but more for the human beings they are, who have many other sides than the professional one.
  • Be a role model. Preach by example. It does not mean that you have to do all the tasks; it is to have reciprocal relationships with your team and demonstrate your commitment, effort, flexibility, creativity, and even humility.
  • Constantly learning. You can always keep learning, be open to new ideas, learn from your team, coworkers, and any person who could give you a good lesson.
  • Keep educating yourself. It could be the key to a great leader. You need to be up to date in your field to become an absolute reference in it.

Becoming a leader is not as easy as motivational quotes try to make it appear. It would be best if you had a deep compromise and much training. We recommend seeking a specialized company that offers this knowledge to boost and awake the lion inside you.
