In your work as a leader it often falls upon you to make the toughest decisions and bear the brunt of any challenges to the business. Here are three characteristics that the strongest leaders display…
- The ability to accept blame – the toughest leaders are able to accept blame rather than looking for a scapegoat. By accepting blame, you are able to consider what happened, move on and work towards a solution instead of focussing on who made it happen.
- The ability to accept failure – Failure is not something to spend time dwelling on; at some point in life you are going to face failure. The question is not how to avoid failing, but how to move forward from that failure to create success.
- Finding solutions – the ability to use creative and aggressive thinking to find a solution is a key attribute of a good leader. By thinking in a way that no other member of the team is able to, you can find solutions to the most complex of problems.
