4 Words That Mean Leadership


You know the phrase actions speak louder than words? Well it’s true. You need to look at your life both at work and at home and ask yourself- am I leading by example? What message am I sending out when I do X?

As a parent, I am highly sensitive when it comes to using manners. Nothing rubs me the wrong way than a rude kid or adult. Manners are a must in this world. Even in the corporate world, leaders like David Rubenstein of Carlyle Group always makes a mental note on the etiquette of other businessmen.

Kindness, respect, compassion, courage: these four traits are necessary ingredients to be a strong leader. These traits do not exude weakness. Being an arrogant, condescending person does exhibit weakness. Those traits are like a cancer which eats away at not only the person but the environment they are working in.

So instead of falling into the negative. Embrace the positive and make a difference. When you leave this world what are the words you want to be remembered by? Embrace your inner leader by recognizing your strengths and working on your weaknesses. The world watching 🙂
