How to Become the Business Leader You Want to Be

Over and again I meet business leaders and managers with wonderful potential … who see themselves as far less able than they are.

The fact is, if we start to behave as the business leader we wish to become, whatever your role, success will arrive hundred times faster.

Over and over I see business leaders missing excellent opportunities. It seems they almost waiting for someone to give them permission to provide the leadership their company needs. Here are two examples for you:

a. A Managing Director who decided where he wanted to take the business then, listening to clients and employees each step along the way, he fearlessly knocked down each barrier to create the company is his vision.

b. Another Managing Director who, one year later was still unsure where she wanted to take the business and, when guided to do so, still seemed to look for someone else to take ownership of each business challenge.

So be honest now – which of these two examples are you behaving most like today?

You are more than capable of achieving whatever you set your heart on.

7 steps to becoming a successful business leader – fast

Follow these simple steps and you will quickly see results:

1. Define what you most want your business to achieve. Paint a picture that inspires you.

2. Objectively stand back and list the characteristics, behaviour, skills and focus a business leader who delivered no. 1 would have.

3. List five examples of things you have done that you are proud of. (Have fun with this. It is important. The examples can be big or small.)

4. Immediately after you complete 3. describe yourself – beside each relevant characteristic in 2. in a in a column alongside.

5. Highlight the areas where you are strong.

6. Pinpoint the top two or three areas where you wish to close the gap (or to outsource it.)

7. Now visualise yourself being that business leader. Visualisation is incredibly powerful as your mind cannot tell the difference between reality and imagination. Notice how good it feels as you see yourself at your very best, enjoying the success you deserve. Do this daily.
