I used to think that leadership was like a fine wine, that it improved with age.  I was wrong, it improves with EFFORT.   Wisdom certainly helps in all areas of life, but common sense, compassion and aggressive learning are the foundation for a good leader and for success.

Before we get into some of the pitfalls of leadership, allow me to share some leadership humor. Enjoy.

Getting the job done!  

When there is a job to do, leaders have found that there are FOUR people that they can go to.  These four people are Everyone, Someone, Anyone, and No one.   The leaders often begin with asking Everyone to do the job, knowing that Someone will do it.   Sometimes a job that Anyone can do, gets done by No one!  

What seems strange is that when Someone does the job, No one usually gets credit, but when No one does the job, Everyone gets the blame.

Dogs as Employees!

A salesman made his last call of the day, only to find that almost everyone had gone for the day.  The only one that was working was a dog!?  The salesman watched in awe as the dog went around to each desk and emptied each trash can into a bin on wheels.  The salesman rubbed his eyes in disbelief,  "I can't believe that I am seeing this."  
"Believe it." said the dog, "I am the night janitor and this is part of my job."
"Does your boss know that you can talk?" asked the salesman as his jaw dropped.
"Please do not tell him that I can talk."  answered the canine custodian, "If he learns that I can talk, he'll have me answering the phone as well."

Leadership Pitfalls

Leadership is a double edged learning process.  Each of the six leadership skills below need to be learned, but learning these skills is only HALF of the process.  

 The other half is that each skill needs to be refined and tempered.  Learn the following skills and you are on your way to being a leader, refine these skills and you are destined to be a great leader.  

Humor:  Work at being humorous, having a good sense of humor, and having fun.  Learn humor but learn to not be silly of foolish.

Bold:  Leaders need to be bold, it takes boldness to manage and boldness is a sign of confidence, learn to be bold, but learn to not be a bully and to never 'talk down' to others.

no following skills joke

Strong:  Leaders must be strong in order to wield the power and the authority needed to get things done.  Learn to be strong but also learn to not be rude or impolite.

Kindness:  Kindness is an essential part of being a success as a member of the human race as well as being a leader. Learn kindness and also learn how to be kind without being weak.

Humility:  Humility is a virtue and one that helps to keep us in our place.  Learn humility but avoid being timid.  Timidity is an affliction that cripples leaders, humility uplifts them.  Learn to be humble but also learn to never be timid.

Pride:  Be proud of what you are doing, be proud of what you have done, and be proud of you will do in the future.  On the other hand, avoid being arrogant.  This lesson is one that I still struggle with...once I was one of the smart arrogant young know it I am one of the smart  arrogant mature know it alls!   Learn to be proud, but learn to not be arrogant.

The above leadership skills are just some of the skills that Jim Rohn teaches.  Jim passed away in 2009, but his leadership skills and his leadership teachings are possibly the best!  I am a huge Jim Rohn fan, I hope you are also.

The following Jim Rohn video is one of his most popular.  Jim will 'revolutionize' your thinking and your success!

Thank you for reading, my friends.  I wish you much success!
