Of all the three things a man who wants to take the LEAD must learn how to DEAL with, the most vital are HUMANS. The fear of this third element is the reason many run away from leadership.
Why you’re called a leader is because you have people following you with whom you want to achieve a goal or make a project a success. Without anyone following you, you aren’t a leader, instead you’re just another individual walking on a path alone.
Why are people the most vital element a leader must learn to deal with? It is with them you will successfully manage the first two elements (resources and situations) and if they’re not in agreement with your style, nothing works.
Another thing is, unless they are work in unity with themselves, the energy level in the team will be low, hence, producing little or no results. Therefore, you must learn to manage them as individuals and as a team.
But you also must note that you being a leader means you must be observant to identify those pulling down the efforts of others which you might have to deal with by taking them out of the team. You also need a degree of control over who walks into the group and who goes out to make sure the desired result is achieved.
In the same vein, being the leader of your own life, you must learn to manage those you allow in your life per time. Learn when to let those with negative energy leave. Identify people with same energy level as yours who you can work with. From time to time, people will walk in and out of your life, be sure you personally man the entry and exit gate else you put your life goals at risk.
Now that you know the three things to deal with and how, what are you going to do with the knowledge? Take the lead in your life today and greatness is just a step away. It’s time to take the LEAD.
