Being A Better Leader: 26 Ideas To Choosing Someone You Can Walk and Work With.

The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things. He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things. — Ronald Reagan

In order to get people to do those greatest things, you need someone or some people close by that you have got to walk and work with.

Every leader needs a special friend(s) who may not be a personal friend, a coach or a mentor; who may neither be an analyst nor management consultant. Not someone to fix you or teach you how to lead. You are already a leader.

Leadership is not magnetic personality, that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not ‘making friends and influencing people,’ that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to higher sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations–Peter F. Drucker

Allow me to enchant you and to introduce the Executive Inspreneur. This is your person. Someone who can walk by your side, who can listen without telling you what to do, who can be a sounding board so you can stay open, receptive, clear, alert, focused, balanced, expansive, energized and resilient. Someone ready to provide insights, perspectives, wisdom, encouragement, inspiration, ideas, support and challenge so you can thrive, be at ease, relaxed and fully present. That’s who you need to keep as a leading friend. They could be more than one, more than two even more than four, if you’re lucky to find. These leading friends are sometimes called our confidants, A-team, or our masterminds.

So who would you choose for such a role? Below Are 26 Ideas That Could Help Out

1.Perhaps someone who is good at making something out of nothing?

2.Perhaps someone who understands all the elements of your world intimately?

3.Perhaps someone who can see the bigger picture?

4.Perhaps someone who is brilliant at pulling things together and making things happen?

5.Perhaps someone who is good at looking objectively beyond the surface to see what is really going on?

6.Perhaps someone who can see the common thread of purpose and meaning for all parties involved?

7.Perhaps someone who is brilliant at spotting potential and developing it?

8.Perhaps someone who has successfully played the role of the Rainmaker for more than 2 decades?

9.Perhaps someone with an affinity for the future and cutting edge, next generation evolutionary developments?

10.Perhaps someone with an inherent understanding of energies, trends and patterns?

11.Perhaps someone who is an innovator and visionary?

12.Perhaps someone who can think outside of the box?

13.Perhaps someone with Midas Touch?

14.Perhaps someone who is authentic, resourceful, creative and unconventional?

15.Perhaps someone who stimulates and captures the imagination and challenge expansion of perception?

16.Perhaps someone who is brilliant at reading the signs, deciphering the patterns and connecting the dots?

17.Perhaps someone who can rise above the obvious?

18.Perhaps someone who can turn ideas into assets and value?

19.Perhaps someone whose senses are highly developed and can feel into every situation intuitively and spontaneously?

20.Perhaps someone who understands Human and Organizational Potential?

21.Perhaps someone who can pick up limiting beliefs, opinions, behaviour and attitudes?

22.Perhaps someone who can nurture, support and challenge?

23.Perhaps someone who has intimate knowledge and experience of development cycles (Spiral Dynamics)

3D factors successful people use to turn their dreams into reality.

The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams- Eleanor Roosevelt

Do you realize how close you are to turning your dreams into your reality?
If you could see how close you are to success, you’d be kicking yourself that you haven’t just
reached out to grab it yet.
The truth is, no matter how much you feel like a
failure, success is literally waiting for you. Success is a process. There’s no short-cut to it. The only thing you have to do, is fight off
the factors that’s holding you back from achieving yours. The top is very free, but at the end only few end up there. There are factors, processes and ways to achieve success. One common thing I realized about all success-oriented personals is that they had to give in something be it their time or resources in order to get to where they are now.
Here are the 3-D factors successful achievers use in turning their dreams into reality.
1. Don’t make Excuses

If we choose someone successful to look at as an epitome, like Steve Jobs or Richard Branson or Bill Gates or Oprah Winfrey, we’ll see that they never made excuses. When things went wrong, they didn’t blame other people, their background and they didn’t refuse to accept responsibility for their own mistakes. I’m not perfect though but there’s time in my life when I was more of an excusing person but since when I made it as a challenge to work on myself, I’ve seen things that are really different. Something about these men is that they neither tried to justify their poor choices nor make excuses because they understood
that failure is going to happen. After forming it as a habit to not make excuses, I got to realize that no matter what us, humans undergo, It’s not the end of the road – it’s just a one step on the road to success. When you think it’s the end of the road, add a B-end, because it’s just a bend away to your desired destination.

2. Don’t get scared of Failure
Like I already said, failure happens. But it’s not a
dead end – it’s just a bend which means you could still rise above it.
Too many people run into a tiny bit of failure,
and they think they’re done forever. They give up
immediately, never realizing how close they were
to achieving their goals.
The problem is, they take failure personally. They
think it means something’s wrong with them. But
the truth is, failure is part of the journey to
success.
That’s why it’s so important that you stop getting scared of it.
3. Don’t Beat up themselves.
Think about it. Can you imagine Bill Gates,
yelling at himself, saying that he’s dumb, or lazy,
or any of the other million insults people tell
themselves? Of course not!
Successful people don’t beat themselves up.
They understand that taking your anger out on
yourself only pushes your goals farther away.
They still get upset, but they channel those emotions into constructive energy. They use that
energy as jet fuel to reach their goals. The truth about success is that you’re closer than you think. Sometimes all it takes is to embrace these factors so you can let your dreams
pour in.

Think Positive, Think Different.
