I talk a lot about leadership qualities and how leaders need to be conscious and aware of their behavior and how they treat employees. That is extremely important and we must always be aware of how we manage on an individual level, but what about our business operations as a whole? Being a conscious leader means instilling values-based purpose in your company. And in order to do this, everyone at the organizations – from the top to the bottom – must be aware of exactly what those values are. After all, how can one adhere to a certain way of doing things if they are not aware of them?

I am always in constant contact with other leaders, discussing ideas and sharing opinions on a variety of matters. In this time, I have observed that there are certain attributes. So I was very interested to come across an article describing common traits that leaders have in common.I think these features are accurate and would like to share a few of them with you today. First, leaders understand the importance of recognizing both their strengths and weaknesses.
Something that seems to have disappeared from our daily lives. On second thought, was it ever there in the first place. I think the answer is yes, but never enough.
We all have something to be grateful for, whether it is our family, roofs over our heads or daily food to eat. These are the basics in the life and many people don’t have all – or any – of these things.
It seems obvious to me that treating employees well encourages better work and a much more productive and pleasant atmosphere but perhaps not everyone acknowledges or agrees with this. There seems to be a prevalent attitude that employees are supposed to dutifully perform the tasks given while managers and bosses lead the way. Whether this means employees are treated well or badly, that is up to the managers. In this scenario, the bottom line is the primary focus.
When like-minded individuals come together to discuss the most pressing and important issues of the day, it is a rare and special opportunity. So I was thrilled to again be a part of the annual Leaders’ Quest Pow-Wow.
Leaders’ Quest is a social enterprise that works with leaders to transform cultures, encourage innovation and make meaningful impacts. During the annual Pow-Wow, leaders from across the globe joined together to share ideas and learn from one another.
