What challenges are holding you back?
No two leaders are alike.
You have Steve Jobs types: charismatic, visionary, demanding. You have Maya Angelou types: courageous, creative, steadfast. And you have countless other types in between, all unique but still able to inspire their followers to take action and achieve goals.
What are the qualities of a great leader? Well, it depends on who you ask.
Some employees might value a boss who makes them feel empowered, while a CEO might prefer a manager who’s always got their eye on the bottom line.
But true leadership—the kind that can inspire disruptive change and motivate teams to move mountains—is more than just a matter of opinion. All great leaders share certain defining qualities that help them see a future that’s different from the present, act on that vision, and inspire others to come along for the ride.
Most great leaders suffer from atychiphobia. No, it’s some fatal medical condition, but it can feel almost as debilitating. It’s the fear of failure, and it’s something all of us must overcome if we want to make a lasting, meaningful impact on the world.
