Being a Good Leader: 3 Counseling Tips

Everyone in life wants to be a good leader, but in order to become one, you must exude a set of unique qualities. People say that good leaders have to be charismatic, strong, strong-minded, hard working, and the list goes on and on. Although some of these characteristics may be true, in order to be a good leader, you must apply these 3 main qualities:

1)   Be an optimistic Person – No matter what hardships one may be faced with in life, it is essential to take into consideration how these hardships are dealt with. A true leader will look at a problem and immediately think of numerous ways to solve it rather than spend time dwelling upon it. No matter what the problem may be, whether physical or mental, a true leader will not cause a fit because they know that as soon as anger arises, their judgment becomes clouded.

2)   Have a Vision – Believe it or not, many people live lives without having any goals or dreams. The people that live these lives are in no way leaders because they don’t care to make a difference in society. Although Bill Gates and Steve Jobs are considered leaders for creating outstanding enterprises, you have to realize that being a leader isn’t about having the most money. The real reason why Gates and Jobs are true leaders is because they wanted to make a difference in the world, a technological difference. It is essential that you have a vision if you want to be a leader. What do you want to do with your life, what is your purpose of living and breathing in this day and age? Successful goals tend to grow out of passion, so if you want to be a true leader, learn how to contribute your passion to society.

3)   Be Open-minded – A noble man once said, “Chance favors the connected mind.” This is a very powerful statement in that in order to be a successful leader, you must be willing to cooperate with others. Again, let’s refer to Steve Jobs and Bill Gates. Individually, these two people didn’t create Apple Inc. and Microsoft Corporation respectively. They both needed a team, they need to talk with others in order to balance ideas and they’ve worked with people who disagreed with their beliefs as well. What made them good leaders was their willingness to communicate with others despite differing opinions.

To be a good leader, you must remember to be optimistic, goal-oriented, and open-minded. By being these things, you are able to interact in various situations and with various people. Icons such as Steve Jobs and Bill Gates possessed these qualities and it is no wonder why they became legends. Remember, being a leader isn’t a natural gift, you can become one as long as you work to attain the qualities they possess. Article written by Boston Counseling Writer (Non-clinical Writer))
