Top 5 Secrets Of A Natural Born Leader

If you were not born with the characteristics of a good leader, you can learn to fake it! A lot of people naturally own at least a few of the qualities of a good leader, but they don't know how to make it work for them effectively. Even the most shy and timid personality can benefit in every aspect of life if they discover what makes a good leader.

You will face many circumstances in which strong leadership qualities will work to your advantage. If you fully embrace the qualities of a good leader, they will improve every part of your life from winning that big promotion to dealing with friends.

How can you learn what makes a good leader and make yourself into one? You can start today by learning the five characteristics of a good leader described right here.

Keep A Positive Attitude
While this is among the most essential qualities of a good leader, many people will struggle with making it a part of their life. It all starts with an attractive smile. What makes a good leader effective is a warm, enthusiastic attitude that looks at the bright side of life. If you make yourself seem friendly and approachable, others will feel more open to listening to you. If you want others to follow you, a positive outlook and a healthy amount of enthusiasm for life become essential characteristics of a good leader.

Watch Your Actions
What makes a good leader successful while others fail is usually how they choose to behave. Never expect others to follow the rules you routinely break yourself, or to listen to your advice when you ignore it yourself. Essentially, what makes a good leader effective is the ability to accept their own rules of proper behavior.

Boost Your Self Esteem And Confidence
This is just one of several of the skills of a good leader that can be hard to copy cat. If you want others to follow your lead willingly, you must at least appear to know exactly what you are doing and where you are going. Regardless of how certain you might be at times, what makes a good leader is the perception of certainty. Remaining calm in the most troubling moments is what makes a good leader trustworthy and relied upon by others.

The Rules of Good Management
The characteristics of a good leader often intertwine with strong managerial skills. Leaders delegate essential tasks to others in order to achieve the overall goal. Motivating others to do what you need of them is at the root of the most effective leadership qualities, and that is accomplished by maintaining that positive, cheerful attitude.

Living With High Standards
Natural leaders insist on maintaining high standards for themselves, and expecting the same from others. The secret here is to make others believe in themselves, so they will deliver the best of their abilities. A strong leader sees the best qualities in other people and strengthens that in them for the best overall results for all.

Essentially, what makes a good leader stand out from the crowd is a high level of self confidence, and the ability to make others feel successful as well. If you don't have it naturally, learn to copy cat these secrets!

- Loyalty

Loyalty The Key Quality of Business Leaders
Submitted by Wayne Messick
Sun, 8 Feb 2009

There is no quick way to develop business leadership management skill - either among the members of your organization or for that matter, within you. It takes time to become a leader, you must learn through your life with the passing of time spent learning what real leadership is and what it means to be a leader.

To be a leader, a master of business leadership management - you must always be a student. To be always learning keeps you in the loop with your youngest employees and will help you lead your veteran employees to more effective strategies. Your people expect their leaders to be on the cutting edge.

New ideas and insights, new procedures and new methods whatever their source must always be welcomed and integrated into what you already know and what's already working for you and your people. Your employees gain confidence when they know you are on the case - learning, not taking what you've done well in the past as an excuse to stop stretching yourself.

In order to be a 21st century business leader you and all the other leaders in your organization must possess the essential qualities of leadership. And it is only through experience that these qualities will be born and nurtured until they become master skills.

Every article, every book, and every training course devoted to business leadership management and its development have lists that claim to be "the" qualities and characteristics of leaders. I will not argue with any of them - they are all important, each is more or less important depending on the specific business where the characteristics are found.

If there is one characteristic of leadership that all gurus, experts, authors, and academics will agree on - it's loyalty. Above all a leader must be loyal. Loyalty to the mission, loyalty to your bosses, loyalty to your direct reports, and loyalty to your peers.

That loyalty is a critical element is not in doubt - however being loyal does not mean we should not disagree with one another. Disagreement is not the same as disloyally. In fact the most loyal followers are those who disagree with their leaders and openly discuss their points of disagreement until a consensus is reached - one the followers and the leader can agree on and wholeheartedly endorse.

A follower who, in the best interests of the organization disagrees with the leader is someone to be listened to. That person embodies the notion that open discussion is allowed - that all relevant points of view are considered and that while a business organization might not be run like a true democracy, this one is closer to it than most.

Leaders must demonstrate loyalty by welcoming that discussion, by taking the input of their followers seriously and considering opinions other than their own. And not just the leaders in the Board room - this also applies to leaders whose business leadership management takes place on the shop floor or in the sales manager's office. They must also encourage discussions between themselves and their subordinates.

The old days of "my way or the highway" are long gone in theory. It is up to leaders at every level of the organization to make sure theory and practice are one and the same in their workplace.

On the other hand, an employee - no matter how low or high in the pecking order, who takes part in or encourages others to take actions that are not in the best interest of the organization should be fired. That person's ability to influence and as a result discourage loyal employees, managers, and executives is contagious.

It is a disease that will, left untreated cause the death of the organization. No one can serve two masters. The malcontent is more likely to be closer to the people being influenced that you are. No matter who this person is they must be removed and removed quickly.

It is essential to the health and prosperity of the business that the leaders at every level possess the skill, ability, attitude, and loyalty that will enable them to successfully carry out their responsibilities for the good of the organization as a whole.

Business leadership management is the ability to inspire people and to give them the motivation to surpass their own limits to reach a common objective.

- The Importance Of Values

The Importance Of Values

I am sure that a large part of the reason that you are reading this article right now is because you want to be a success and if you are a coach yourself you want to help your clients succeed too. It is true that the definition of success may be different for every person; however, the real evidence of success essentially is portrayed in who you are right now and who you are becoming. The source of this success is determined by your values. So it is so important to find a way to clarify your values which determine the very nature of your own personal success.

When you know what your values are it does provide you with a head start for making better choices and decisions. Such choices are ones that serve you best, choices that help you to live in alignment with whom you are and who you want to be. They are choices that take you closer to where you want to be and not ones that lead you further away from the point you want to reach. Values are standards by which you choose to live your life by to the best of your ability every day. And by so doing they enable you to focus on what is really important in your life. The natural outcome of living and practicing your values is a life full of joy, excitement, inspiration, harmony, balance and a sense of peace. It, however, does not mean that every day will be stress and problem-free. Realistically, life is full of challenges, but by living according to your values, each event, happening roadblock or slight deviation in plans becomes a little if not a lot easier to manage and becomes a lot less challenging.
If you really want to change something in your life and succeed, you need to get serious about your values. Until you determine what your values are, it is impossible to live the way you want in a way that is long-lasting. Success only comes as a result of having values and practicing them at every opportunity. As Albert Einstein said; Try not to become a man of success, but rather try to become a man of value."
Values fundamentally shape your behaviors, choices and decisions in life. If you go through your days without knowing what your values are, how can you create the kind of life you want for yourself? Thus, it is important to determine your values first to support a clear vision of what it is that you really desire to be able to live the kind of life you dream of.

Values are often overlooked. More emphasis is placed on goals and achieving them. I am not saying that dreams and goals are not important, but what is a goal worth if it is not based on what is important and valuable to you? Goals that are determined by motivations other than ones that are true for you end up feeling and being meaningless. That is the reason why so many people feel empty after having reached a goal that they thought they genuinely wanted. It is because the value of the goal itself is not in alignment with what is valued. If for example one of your values in life is adventure, but you aim for and get a job or relationship that is very stable and offers you security and safety, there will come a time when you will become very unhappy because the relationship or job does not meet what you value, namely adventure and risk-taking. This could be the other way round too of course.
When you confirm and address what you value in yourself, in others, in your work, for your health, for the environment and for your own spiritual journey you can then create the lifestyle of your choice. They determine what your building blocks or choices for success will be. Determining your values encourages you strongly to listen to your inner voice and to do what the heart really wants.

Do you know what your values are? If you are not sure, take some time out and write down in order of priority what standards or values are most important and valuable to you in your life. Do not be surprised if they are different to what you thought they were or what they were 5 years or even 1 year ago. Values DO and are meant to change as you grow develop.

- How to Stay Positive in Tough Times

Submitted by dane
Sun, 8 Mar 2009

With the global economy struggling to stabilize and millions of people losing their jobs, the overall outlook of many Americans and people around the world has taken a bit of a nose dive. This isn't surprising, as loss of income obviously leads to increased stress, which can cause a whole host of mental, emotional, relational and even physical problems, from fatigue and malnutrition to marital strife and depression. But these kinds of problems can be avoided the key is, it's all about attitude.

In these difficult times, it's important to stay positive, and keep a glass is half full mentality. This is true across the board, whether you've lost your job or not. In fact, employers looking to cut costs are more likely to let go of employees who don't bring positivity and energy to the workplace now, more than ever, companies need leaders, even cheerleaders, to keep up morale and prevent further losses. So don't let your spouse's job loss or news of pay cuts or other setbacks effect your work attitude power through, and show your employer just how much they need you, and what a leader you can be to those who are struggling around you.

If you have lost your job, it's very common to feel helpless and even depressed. This is normal, but it's important that you don't let these feelings affect your efforts to find a new source of income. Letting yourself spiral into a state of depression will only make it harder to get back on top. Instead, hit the ground running and start a new job search right away. Revise your resume, re-evaluate your priorities, and keep your chin up!

Of course, staying positive in tough times isn't always easy, but there are things you can do to make it easier on yourself. First, cut extraneous costs. If you've lost some or all of your income, take a long hard look at your monthly spending and cut everything you don't need: fancy cable, high-tech cell phone service, regular salon appointments, eating out, unnecessary shopping, etc. It's better to do without than to sink yourself into debt. Simplification is a great way to relieve stress and pressure, and to really reevaluate what matters and what doesn't. News flash: things won't make you happy. It's people, relationships, friendships, that really matter, and the sooner you learn to focus on this and forget all the "stuff" that the media, commercials and everyone else says you need.

If you find yourself struggling to stay positive, another way to help remove some of the stress is to stop watching the news. The highly alarmist, ratings-driven nature of the modern media has made it less reliable and more sensational. Turn the TV off and just browse headlines online to see what's going on in the world. No need to listen to whatever issue the media has decided to panic about today they will move on to a new one soon enough, and frankly, you don't need the added stress. Finally, remember the old saying, "laughter is the best medicine" it's a clich for a reason.

- 10 tips for more efficient recruitment advertising

Submitted by artavia.seo
Mon, 30 Mar 2009

If you're interested in recruitment advertising, you need to be efficient about it, or you won't have the success that you're looking for and you won't get the right person for the job. Here are ten tips to help you do well:

1. Put all of your resumes and applications in a database when they are received. It lets you retrieve data much more easily, often by just searching for one keyword.
2. Make sure you contact their references, because they might not be as honest about who they know and how they know them as they should be.
3. Make sure that you're formal and professional when it comes to letting people know if they got the job.
4. The Internet can be your friend, so don't be afraid to advertise your job there.
5. Make sure you're clear about what is expected of the applicant.
6. Show the applicants that you are offering them a good career opportunity.
7. Post in different categories and on different sites – there might not be a 'one size fits all' description of the job you're offering.
8. Make a Website for your company and for the job recruitment so that people have one place to go to apply and you can keep track of the steady flow of applications and resumes.
9. Don't downplay important aspects of the job because you think someone might not want to do them. If you aren't honest up front, you won't find the right person.
10. If you aren't planning on filling the job right away, let people know that. Set a time limit for sending resumes and applications and stick to it.

It's easy to make mistakes when you're looking for someone to work for you, but you don't have to struggle with problems that you could easily avoid. Take the time to learn a little bit more about recruitment and the right ways to advertise for what you want and need in a new employee. Then, be willing to look at what people have to offer and don't just settle for the first person who applies. Wait until you have the chance to look at quite a few people's resumes and applications so that you're sure you're getting the right person for the job. Once you check that person's references and hire him or her, you can relax a bit and feel safe in the assumption that the person will likely work out and stay with the job, stopping you from having to go through the whole process again any time soon.

Give your internet business every possible advantage you can. Starting out a business is never as easy as one would hope and internet businesses are no exception. You may have the best product in the world and still have difficulties getting your product up and running on the web. There's a lot you may have to learn to be successful at internet marketing and internet marketing courses may be just the very thing you need to ensure your success.

Internet marketing courses come in a wide variety of selections to cover almost any aspect of internet networking or marketing you could need. Having a successful internet business involves more than having a great product or being an enterprising entrepreneur. You need to learn the correct strategy to not only do effective advertising to bring customers to your site but, more importantly, to keep them there so they want to buy, return and refer others to your site.

Like any other business, being successful at your internet venture involves knowing internet-marketing foundations from the ground up. Internet marketing courses will teach you everything you need to know to be successful including but not limited to:

- Email marketing strategies

They'll teach you every step of the way towards learning all you need to know to not only start your internet business but to maintain it online and make it a huge success.

Every business entrepreneur has what he or she considers his or her strong points and the areas where they feel they need extra help. While one may be capable of designing an award-winning web page, they may also lack the skills and experience of successful advertising. Another individual may have a lot of experience and knowledge of the most successful methods of advertising but lack some other area of expertise needed for a successful network business. One is not going to be successful without the other.

Internet marketing courses are unique in that you can take as little or as many courses as you feel you need. You'll have your choice of individual courses, course packages or programs offering certificates upon successful completion. Whether you're new at internet marketing and trying to get started or have been doing this for a while, there's always something you can learn about network marketing. New methods and techniques are developed every day and you want to stay on top of each new method so you can remain competitive in your field.

With internet businesses becoming so popular today, you're going to want every possible advantage. Don't let your competitor get the edge on you because they're more informed on new available techniques or advertising principles. Whether it's selling your services online, writing articles, learning about internet auctions or affiliate marketing you want to learn, you'll find an abundance of excellent internet marketing courses available to you.

- Lack of Confidence

- What Should You Do About It?

Suffering with a lack of confidence is a common condition that can affect you in a number of ways.

You avoid social events, because it's difficult to speak easily with strangers. You want to find the confidence to apply for your ideal job, but interviews fill you with dread. You'd love to blast out a song on Karaoke night, but your lack of confidence just won't allow you to.There's only one thing for it. It's now time for you to leave behind this lack of confidence and really start to live your life without constraints.You may have already heard that setting goals is important. That's true - it is. Nevertheless, if your goal was to be a Formula One Racing Driver by next month, but you can't even drive, then the likelihood is you won't achieve that goal. But, if the goal you wanted to achieve was more realistic, like learning to drive a car in 6 months, then you would stand a far better chance of succeeding.

Whenever you fail to achieve your goal, it can lead to your self confidence taking a tumble.

One simple way to start to build self confidence is to set some goals that are easily achievable. Whatever your goals are (it's best to start with very small goals at first), when you successfully complete them, it will give you a great sense of satisfaction and a welcome boost to your self confidence.

Hobbies such as crafting, painting, woodwork, needlework, and cookery are all things that can be carried out at home. Be sure to choose something that you enjoy doing, set yourself some achievable goals, and keep practising until you attain them. You get a wonderful feeling with every achievement, regardless of how small it is.When your lack of confidence is related to something that you can't remedy yourself, then you should not give up - you should seek help from others. There are numerous ways to improve self confidence, and some ways are more effective than others. A well written book by a confidence expert is a good place to start, and hypnotherapy has always proven to be a fast and efficient way to give your confidence a boost.

Whatever you do to overcome your lack of confidence, doing something (anything) is always better than doing nothing at all. Once your confidence has started to increase, you should then take your hobby or interest further by joining a group, apply for all those jobs that you really want, and start to socialize a great deal more. By doing things such as these, you get to meet new people, your confidence increases even more, and you leave your lack of confidence behind in the past.

Listening like a Leader

Listening Like a Leader

Our studies of the most effective people in corporate America show that the top 2 percent are effective not because they executed best practices well. They did not make the most phone calls or have the best processes. They simply understood the truth about trust:
  • People do business with people they like.
  • They like people they trust.
  • They trust people who have a detectable level of compassion and competence.
Does it take time to build trust? The truth is that you have known people for five years who still don't trust you, and you've known some for five minutes who do. Our research shows that trust is usually created by showing a detectable level of concern. When people truly believe you are concerned for them, they tend to think you possess good judgment. After all, if you care about them, you must know what you are doing.

So what is the fastest and most effective way to show people that you care and you're competent?Make sure they feel heard, which is more than just listening. I call it listening like a leader.

You are not a leader unless you have followers; a leader without followers is called a failure. Regardless of your skills, if your staff doesn't feel heard and doesn't trust you, they will always do the minimum. They will watch the clock and be ready to leave at 4:45 every afternoon. They will do just enough each day to avoid getting fired, and they will hope the idea you came up with without their input fails. That's right—you can spend your life delegating to people who want your projects to fail. How smart is that?

OK, you have to listen; I am sure you already know that. The issue is, how well do people really listen? Most studies show that 75 percent of the world's population does not listen well.

Here is an insight that you won't find in many books, http://www.keynote-speaker-motivational.com/leadership-managment-speaker.htm">leadership speaker keynotes or training programs. As a whole, we don't listen very well and it's not our fault! That's right, I am sure you are used to hearing and reading that all of our communication problems are of our making. However, most experts agree that from birth to 5 years of age, we learn more than we will for the rest of our lives.

Even if you earn 15 doctorate degrees in your lifetime, you still acquired most of your knowledge in early childhood. In those formative years, if a child does not feel heard by the adults in its life, it does not possess good listening skills. The bottom line is that it's hard to listen when no one ever listened to you.

Listening is not hereditary. It's an acquired skill.

Are we going to blame the parents? No! It's difficult to listen to young children when we are trying to look out for their welfare. When my stepdaughter was five, she asked me if Dracula drives a taxi cab. I said, “Well…, I guess if it's a night job. Uh, wait a minute! What kind of question is that?”

She also asked me if she could have a tattoo—not a fake, stick-on tattoo from an ice cream parlor vending machine, but a real one. I said, “No, because you're in kindergarten—and I'm taking the TV out of your room just for asking that question.”

People are more likely to follow your example than to follow your advice. We create better listeners by being better listeners.

Unfortunately, we don't have much evidence of people returning from communication-training programs as better listeners. It doesn't take a lot of research to figure out that poor listeners get very little from seminars on listening.

So we don't listen and it prevents us from being effective leaders. If we can't do much to improve our listening skills, we have to focus on what we can do in the condition we are in.

The key, then, is to focus on making sure people feel heard. And the first step requires recognizing and recovering from distractions.

One day, as I listened to an employee talk about his wants and needs, my mind started to wander. There he was, sharing his core issues, and I'm thinking to myself, “Look at the size of this guy's head!” It was hard to focus. Once I was trying to listen to a prospect on a sales call when I noticed he had red hair, blonde eyebrows and a black mustache. I remember thinking, “It's Mr. Potato Face! Something has to be a stick-on; that's not all him.”After we recover from our own distractions, we have to deal with the real issues at hand. The first of these issues is what I refer to as “the pitch in your head.” It can be anything from a preconceived idea that a manager has about an employee, to a practiced presentation that you are dying to spew on your unsuspecting sales victims (prospects, I mean).

Sure, you ask a question just as you were taught to do in your sales or management training program—you know, a question like “Based on what criteria are your decisions made?” As they talk and you diligently pretend to listen, the pitch in your head starts to play; and when the prospect says something that strikes a chord in you, triggering how much you know, your pitch finds the pause it was looking for and off you go.“I know exactly what you are talking about because I have had many people just like you with this exact same situation. As a matter of fact, it was this time last year and they even looked a lot like you.”You then project your opinion, experience or spiel onto the person as a solution to his or her problem.

Instead of feeling heard, the person feels quickly judged, and communication does not take place. It was dead before the spew was finished.

The problem with this scenario is that you rob people of their uniqueness. When you tell them you know exactly what the problem is, they tend to want to show you how unique they are. You actually create your own resistance and prevent your skills and even your empathy from making their mark.When people are talking, you are thinking about you or about what you can do to help them help you. It's a natural thing for us to do, and it forces us to pitch hard and focus on convincing rather than on gaining agreement.

So what do the most effective people do differently?

They make sure the people they are dealing with feel heard and can retain their uniqueness. If you make people feel important, you will be important to them!But an even bigger realization comes from all of this.

When you focus on how people feel about what they are saying, you increase the level of true concern you have for others. You actually start to become the person you thought you were pretending to be: a true leader!

- Complaining Customers Need To Be Spotted

Customers are one of the many reasons why a restaurant owner/manager is able to continue to manage a restaurant for business or for inspiration. Since customers come from all levels of lifestyle; the differences among them can never be overlooked because it is one way how a restaurant establishment manages to learn from and improve.

Many restaurant owners/managers rely on getting free referrals from customers who happened to try the food and services of a restaurant. If it's a positive feedback, most likely, the return visits are going to be double than expected. It is a known fact that restaurants earn very well when referred to by current customers by word of mouth. Consider yourself and your restaurant lucky when you get several recommendations in a week. Of course, this means a higher demand from you, your restaurant employees and your restaurant's overall performance in terms of food and services.

Sound all good doesn't it? In an ideal world, these things happen without any flaw. But since this is the real world, most likely, there are customers who will visit and try the food and then leave dissatisfied. Even restaurants that have already withstood the test of time still experience these customers who complain about one thing after another.

When an unsatisfied customer walks out of a restaurant, expect to hear negative feedbacks from others as well. Word of mouth, as already known, travels more like a speed of light and you can just imagine how quickly it takes before worse things come to worst.

One solution for preventing a customer getting dissatisfied is to hire a professional spotter. This just means that you are going to have a spy right amidst your restaurant establishment. If you are a restaurant owner who values the restaurant business so much, then this is going to be a good way for you to track down what could be wrong, the things that your last upset customer didn't like and so on...

As an owner, there could probably be many things at a time in your head and the possibility of overlooking minor details which matter could be the root of the problem. In hiring spotters, these minor details which matter will be taken in to account, observed and sorted. Go ahead and resolve complains you usually hear from customers and act on it.

- All about Leadership Skills

All about Leadership Skills

Today’s youths need to develop their leadership skills, which is very necessary. Both leadership skills and leadership training is very much important. But today only very few youths take up leadership skills training programs and such leadership training will help you to understand and adjust things in both workplace and even at home. Opportunities to develop your leadership skills and leadership qualities aren’t limited to youth groups; you may even develop your leadership skills even at places like church and social service organizations.

There are so many things that a leader should needs to develop; he needs to be communicative, adjust with his friends and peers, he should have the ability to influence and persuade people to do things positively. A leader should be able to understand other’s problems and help them. We are all born and raised from different places, countries and culture; hence we need to accept, learn, adjust and respect other people. A leader should always need to be an example for his followers. We need to remember that leaders are not born they are made. If you are a leader of a team, even if the team has only one other person, you need to immediately develop a new set of skills in order to determine what skills these are, and you need to consider the beginning of these high performing teams. A leader should be able to see the big picture, and he needs to have a clear idea about what they want to do and what sort of result or achievements do they expect.

The greatest thing about being a leader in personal life or in work place is that you will be able to practice your skills, influence and persuade others towards a common goal. As a team leader, you will be able to promote the excellent principles of team work, teaching people important values and morals. A leader never compares him with others, but he compares with what he has accomplished, his goals and victories. A good leader has an excellent character and must be trustworthy, hence he needs to be trusted and he should definitely be honest, polite and approachable. A good leader is a person who will never hesitate to role up his sleeves and get messy! A leader must be always enthusiastic about the cause or work. Only a confident leader will set the direction and lead the group in the correct path. If you do things purposeful and orderly, your followers will look for security and reassurance. Last but not least; a good leader should be tolerant and remain calm during problematic situations and try solving it.
