“You cannot change your future; but you can change your habits, and surely your habits…will change your future.” – Dr Abdul Kalam
What is leadership?
An individual's ability to inspire and guide followers or other members of an organization is known as leadership. Individuals with these abilities can advance to executive management or C-level positions in business, such as CEO, CIO, or president.
Corporate leaders aren't characterized by the scale of the businesses they run or whether or not the companies they oversee are publicly traded. A corporate leader can be distinguished by the fact that he created the company or that he pays equal attention to both the community and the business.
It takes many excellent skills to establish and operate a company or organization. Great leaders quickly learn and embrace techniques that help them stay on top of their to-do lists, keep their people motivated, set visionary goals, and balance their personal and professional lives. However, being a great leader entails more than just establishing excellent habits — it also entails avoiding bad ones.
The abilities and actions that contribute to outstanding performance are known as leadership competencies. Organizations may better identify and train their next generation of leaders by employing a competency-based approach to leadership. Future business trends and strategies, on the other hand, should stimulate the development of new leadership skills. While some leadership skills are required of all businesses, to gain a competitive advantage, a company needs to identify which leadership characteristics are unique to it.
Every corporate leader should have the goal of leading by example. Team members look up to their leader and draw clues from how they handle other employees and the crisis. As a result, leaders must exercise extreme caution when modeling the behaviors they want their employees to exhibit.
Too frequently, CEOs demonstrate a harmful habit to their employees, only to copy it to the company's disadvantage.
