Family problems, health, traffic, news and even climate change is factors that subtly alter up sharply from the mood of any person, and if so, add a hostile labor environment, how can an outcome, let alone competitive, if not quality?

It is important to learn to let the concerns in the street outside the organization, which would otherwise distract us the rest of the day. However, it is also fundamental promote a positive work environment an “organizational climate”, which invariably reflected the current state of the organization.

This organizational climate reflects the environment, both, of how we as people, even as the organization is being addressed, whether they are meeting the needs of tools, materials, quality service that is provided in between internal customers, the friction between departments, stroke care, etc.

This information should be based tool and decision making for the leader of the organization (a true leader would, if thoroughly analyzes this datum), since solving the internal problems of organization, it is assumed that the results will be the best, because the partner will feel committed to meeting the demands and needs of the organization.

No One Mentions the Main Factor Leadership

Almost everyone looks at the leaders and exceptional people. Yes, nobody should doubt that they are. And we are not talking here of leaders or those who have the command for holding office. These leaders, the charismatic such as people able to lead the masses of agglomerated without needing an appointment.

And just as many people are exceptional concentrates his attention on them. There is an even theorist who studied and writes books about how to be a leader. Thousands and thousands of people read those books. However, virtually none of these readers become a leader ever. And are disappointed after applying to the letter the factors of leadership.

However, it is that leadership scholars seek to find the causes of this phenomenon on the leaders themselves. Sure, that’ what seems more logical. However, they will be primarily the consequences that have operated the status of leaders. And most people do not really care to study how these figures were before coming to the fore. Because if we find cases should go to the background of the phenomena and not otherwise.

And even after this clarification made many would still find what they want. Begin to scrutinize, to investigate the past of the leaders and not find anything. But why. Because they have not been looking in the right place.

They always seek leader’s childhood, youth, etc., but they are always focused on the individual. Believe or assume that the factors are in personality. And it is correct to assume that many elements of leadership are there. However, the main factor that decides whether someone will be a leader or not, is external to the individual.

This factor is called “circumstances.” The time you decide, determine conditions. Nobody should be surprised by having more intelligence and skill that a particular leader. And despite that, never get to have such high status. You may even be an anonymous or unknown forever. Again, the circumstances are what make a leader. And at the time one is needed and the conditions are ripe, it will soon emerge.

It should not be interpreted so that people are not likely to reach the leadership. On the contrary, what I meant is that everyone is a potential leader. So get ready if the world needs you.

Humility and Its Importance in Leadership

Why humility is important for leadership? Consider the following reasons:

  1. Because a humble leader is not intended to benefit himself with his leadership this fact is accepted favorably by the follower.
  2. For the enthusiasm, he has the wisdom to lead others without leaving any doubt about the breadth and generosity with which proves that it is an integral if not more, ordinary group responsible.
  3. Because, in seeking the benefit of all and not their own is who is located closer to achieve the objectives.
  4. Humility allows for a broader vision, a more appropriate perspective of a life project, as it has to turn more to have a faith in yourself, in God and people, and this leads to begin your dedication to service.
  5. The humble person has the indisputable advantage of their senses or spirit and mind are ready to learn and Split infinitive from one richest source of knowledge and useful: the other people.
  6. Humility when learning helps set the stage for greater wisdom on how to responding every challenge of life of leadership, which also opens the doors of the cells that lead to success.

The opposite of humility is not pride or arrogance, but because it is false humility is a mask behind which may lie not only pride, haughtiness, arrogance but the leadership wants to use their own benefit and not of others.

Life is a path full of thorny hills, sharp spines, straight long, sinuous curves and rocks with sharp edges the way of life, is something of a destination as well and should be remembered with dignity, firmness and a real conviction that what you want and what is firmly believed.

That path should be traveled in the company of others and those people will always be well ahead or behind us, or us.

The humble leader will make his presence felt with strength and not be positioned or backward, or forward, much less top, but next to its people, beside which fought hard for everyone to taste the sweetness of victory.

Is that leader, humble and productive leader who wished to have groups to meet the dual purpose of walking well and right and hope to arrive promptly to reach previously elected chair or an even better located, for example, in victory full and safe operation of equipment and each of its members?

Change: A Source of Good Leadership

A constant always, everything in life changes sooner or later, everything moves from one place to another whole scenario is changed, any time is altered, all words are subject to being influenced using speakers, everything changes in life to the beliefs, dogmas and passions, everything changes alone the fact that we have to accept the change.

The only constant in life, go to the tremendous paradox is precisely the change in the words of Arthur Schopenhauer “change is the only unchanging thing, everything moves, everything moves, everything in life, the world is subject to fluctuations, an action event in permanent and constant vibration.

We must now asks “where is generated the change? And who should start? Gandhi us answered these questions without a hint of doubt “We ourselves must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

The Mahatma resolves the matter with easy and uncomplicated terms. However, reality shows us a constant opposition and there is no surprise that, since the talk about change, we are referring to uncertainty, instability, risk, danger, unemployment and several additional traumas. So sometimes the change is received with little enthusiasm.

Some object from the beginning and the torpedo by any means, others envision reach but are still unprepared when it comes and that is why we are helpless but then manage to react and adapt. Others pick up signals with more time, take precautions, they turn to their lives and activities, and get ahead, happy and empowered pending further changes to which are also prepared.

Equally there are those who do not object or the adjustment, or anticipate, who are they? Neither more nor less than the “guilty” of the welter. Those responsible for the break with the status quo: they are generators, the drivers of change, the powerful machines that turn the transformations with these people, bold leaders whose initiative the world remains in constant oscillation.

It is necessary to discuss the details of the environment in which best moves: its propensity to take initiatives and put them into practice would be the bold and courageous way, their main problem as we have said is dealing with resistance to change.

Actions to Increase Your Personal Leadership

A very important for success in all activities of our life is the ability to Lead. John C. Maxwell says that “Everything rises and falls every issue of Leadership.” Leadership is important, because not only will you be able to lead others, but be prepared to take ourselves. No one is completely successful only by being a follower. Sometimes, we simply must find a new path, be bold and follow it.

Being a good leader is more than just being in front of a crowd. A leader must act. There are many people who see or hear as leaders, but rarely perform actions of leaders, and that is the true test of leadership.

However, to become good leaders ourselves, we must focus on actions rather than mere appearances. In this article refers to eight steps to be taken as actions to perform regularly.

First, be alert to new possibilities. “Reality” is not an absolute; everything is subject to constant change. Think of inventors, explorers, and social change agents who have achieved greatness. Some might says simply that some people are successful because they have been fortunate to be in the right place at the right time. Maybe so, but if you’ve had your eyes open for an opportunity, and then would not have mattered if they were in the right place.

Second, take inspiration from wherever it comes, even our adversaries. The wisest of the leaders constantly look at her competition. In war, politics, business and constantly see examples of this research and recognition.

Third, learn something new and promote new ways of doing things every day. This means that you should try to broaden your horizons, both internally and externally. Eat with new experiences and knowledge, broaden your horizons. Find and meet new people and immerse themselves in new social situations. You never know when these new experiences will help you in your leadership role.

Fourth, seek and find answers in unusual places. Look under the surface. This is an extension of the third stage when it comes to finding new knowledge. We must find those answers where most of people do not seek them. Attend seminars to extra instruction, attend forums or places where there is more room for questioning and debate. Find information of thinkers, teachers and / or unconventional writers.

Fifthly, improvise, if there are no existing solutions. No excuses. Necessity is the mother of an invention. How do you know it will not work if you’ve never tried before? Look at your problem from different angles and deal systematically with different solutions and different combinations.

Six, make one person happy every day. Make someone happy also feeds our own personal happiness. Imagine how much better the world would be if all we put our grain of sand to spread a little happiness.

Seven, offer help, although there is no apparent reward for you. This means giving your time and energy, and yourself. Sometimes this means helping someone who does not know and sometimes can be a very personal action.

Finally, never let negativity take over you. Always accentuate the positive aspects of everything and this will increase the chances of getting a positive result.

Following these eight steps of action cannot only be better leaders, but we will have a more fulfilling personal life.
