5 Business Leadership Skills (Part 1 of 5)

In today's company leadership is essential to moving the business to profitability.  There are several leadership traits that distinguish corporations.  I am writing about the following 5:
  • Lead by Example
  • Organization
  • Delegate/Empowerment
  • Communication
  • Risk Tolerance
Lead by example is a key trait.  To be effective, set the tone by your examples, will lead the organization.  It is essential to be deliberate in the timeliness of reporting, carry yourself with confidence, keep an organized professional image, and show respect for the individuals and organization.  More examples would be pitching in when needed, and making sure the work you do is clearly understood by the team.

The people in the organization are the key strength.  Companies may have strong brands and systems or not.  What will make enhance the brand or destroy it are the people that work for the company.  Brands are created by people, systems are created by people, and profitability is created by people, - respect and lead the organization by example.

As a leader you are leading by example whether you intend to or not.
