John Maxwell in his timeless classic,  ” 21 Irrefutable laws of Leadership”   shares some powerful practical insights on what it takes to be a successful leader.

Take a careful look at these ten:

1.Leadership develops daily, not in a day
2.Anyone can steer the ship but it takes a leader to chart the course
3.When the real leader speaks, people listen
4.Leaders touch a heart before they ask for a hand
5.Trust is the foundation of leadership
6.Leaders find a way for the team to win
7.Leadership ability determines a person’s level of effectiveness
8.The true measure of Leadership is influence
9.Only secure leaders give power to others
10. A Leader’s lasting value is measured by succession

We all need these skills to succeed better. However, like it’s said, Rome was not built in a day. You may want to take the approach of working on one area of these skills, one-at-a-time. A journey of a thousand miles,remember, begins with a step.

These are powerful guidelines to becoming the real leader
