An insatiable curiosity allows Leaders to explore the source of opportunities as well as the source of problems. This guarantees that a winning leader will develop an insane number of opportunities for the company while solving the source of revenue-killing problems. What else makes up a winning leader? In my 20+ years of working with a wide variety of managers, leaders, and winners; I’ve noticed a lot of traits that they all have in common. Let’s say these together:
1. I breath strategic intelligence
My vision is made into reality.
2. I master influence
Teaching others to be good leaders is what I’m all about.
3. I build culture
A definite set of core values defines who I am and guides all aspects of my business. I’ve eliminated gray.
4. I empower others
Trust is nurtured and has gone viral in my company.
5. I “get” alignment
Aligning my goals with the company’s key purpose has allowed me to deliver customer intimacy and competitive sustainability.
6. I play to win.
I dream about crushing the competition. (OK, that’s just me) Zig Ziglar says it nice: “Winning isn’t everything, but the effort to win is.”
