What Creates Personal Influence of Leader
What makes someone has a strong influence to others?
Any leader should be able to influence other people but this trait can only be developed only by becoming a trusted and responsible leader.
1. Never mixed up personal ambition and the leadership position
A leader should have a good emotion management. A leader who loses control over his/her emotions could mix up his/her personal ambition with his/her position and priorities of the organization and group.
This happens because emotion carries personal ambition. Personal ambition is positive to a certain degree because it motivates an individual to do their part. However, once the individual ambition becomes out of control and more important than the group, the leader will lose the trust and loyalty of their followers.
2. Have self-control
Speaking in a calm and collected tone is a sign of a good self control. If you become a leader, you should not shout, become defensive about your ideas or use negative language. If you lose control of our words, it is a sign you do not have control of your emotions. If you cannot control yourself, people will not trust you can lead a group.
3. Show respect to others
Do you show respect to others in the way you speak and act no matter what their background is?
Sometimes little things can make a huge difference in life. A true leader knows about this fact very well and listens to the ideas and thoughts of everyone. They know that their ideas are not the only ones that are valuable.
4. Find a single objective
People who have different backgrounds and different thoughts can be unified when they all have the same objective. They will set aside all their differences in order to reach the goal.
A great leader can create goal which encompasses what most of people in the group want or need.
