8 “Not-So-Secrets” to Becoming an Effective Leader

Whether you own your own corporation and have thousands of employees beneath you, or you simply know that running your home can be like running your own business – most likely, you are a leader.

You lead your family, your kids, direct employees at work – or you’re an entrepreneur and you know leadership of yourself for your business is what’s going to drive your business forward!

 

Here are 8 “not-so-secret” Laws of Leadership to help you Be a More Effective Leader in Life and Business!

 

8 Laws of Leadership


1. Maintain Absolute Integrity

This is not only a law of leadership – but a law of LIFE. In everything you do, you should choose your thoughts, actions, and words so that they reflect your values – not just for personal gain.

It is true that integrity alone won’t make you a good leader, but without integrity, you will never be one. – Zig Ziglar

 

2. Know Your StuffLearn, Grow, Succeed

If you’re going to set yourself apart as a leader, you need to be confident in what you are selling. You should never stop learning the arts of your craft – whether that’s parenting, internet marketing, or running a fortune 500 company. This world is always changing – and you need to stay ahead of the game!

3. Declare Your ExpectationsI do Declare....

Set the bar high! Let others know exactly what you set out to accomplish and how you are going to lead them to success. Will everyone like it or be on board – probably not. But THAT’s Okay. Know what to expect from yourself and make known what you expect of others.

 

4. Show Uncommon Commitment

Let’s face it – life is hard. And when it gets hard, do you bail or do you keep pushing through those tough times until you break the barrier? You need to be the person that shows up – even when no one else will!

 

5. Expect Positive Results

When you expect great things, you will accomplish great things. It’s only when you let your mind talk you out of something great that you will fail.

6. Take Care of Your People

You’ve heard the saying, “The customer is always right.” If you’re leading for the sake of saying you’re a leader, then you may be in it for all the wrong reasons. When you lead, you need to actively be changing the lives of those you lead for their good.

Leadership is about making others better as a result of your presence and making sure that impact lasts in your absence. – Sheryl Sandberg

 

7. Put Duty Before Self

Draw People by your humility and honor, not by your position and power. – Alisa Hope Wagner

 

8. Get Out in Front

You can’t expect to lead if you’re never in front of your people. You need to stand strong and be seen. The only effective way to lead is to do so by EXAMPLE.

    So many people claim to be leaders, but don’t even have a single characteristic of what you describe. If leaders would be leaders we would live in a far better world. Sadly, that isn’t the case. Integrity is, in my opinion, the most important aspect of a leader. Pushing barriers is also important. You have to walk the extra mile and endure what others won’t.

      Hey John!

      Thanks for your feedback! Yes, I agree – being willing to go the extra mile and push through barriers is another great quality leaders need!

      Sadly, they do lack integrity these days – and the ability to keep going when it gets tough. 

      You’ve made some great points! 

      Go rock your day!
