Leaders are readers!

When we see this quote, what comes to mind? Books?

Effective, great and intuitive leaders read other things in addition to books, which sets them apart from others.

1. Leaders are readers of their situation.

In all kinds of circumstances, leaders pick up on details that might elude others.

They don't need to sift through stats, read reports, or examine a balance sheet. They know the situation before they have all the facts.

2. Leaders are readers of their resources.

Leaders focus on mobilising people and leveraging resources to achieve their goals rather on using their own individual efforts.

3. Leaders are readers of trends.

Intuitive leaders can "smell out" when something is happening, when conditions are changing, and when trouble or opportunity is coming. They can look years, even decades ahead.

4. Leaders are readers of people.

Reading people is perhaps the most important intuitive skill leaders can possess.

After all, if what you are doing doesn't involve people, it's not leadership.

And if you aren't persuading people to follow, you aren't really leading.

5. Leaders are readers of themselves.

Leaders must know not only their own strengths and blind spots, skills and weaknesses, but also their current state of mind.

@JohnCMaxwell #leadership #Accelerate #BeDeliberate #MADIsTheNewCurrency #HRwithEM
Why? Because leaders can hinder progress just as easily as they can help create it.

The END!!!
