Karren Brady shares the 6 key ingredients she believes makes a Leader, what qualities would you add to the list and why?
Leadership – A real leader faces the music even when they don’t like the tune, how do you behave when you don’t know what to do? The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in times of comfort, but where he stands in times of challenge
Ambition – Nobody ever started anything without ambition, although it’s hard work that usually finishes the task. Sir Alan Sugar when working on The Apprentice is the first one in in the morning and last out at night. His ambition continues despite his success, there is a real sense of pride, a sense of who you are. If you don’t champion your career who will?
Determination – the ability to pick yourself up when you’ve been knocked down. The importance to keep going. What ever has knocked you down, learn from it and move forward.
Attitude – If you don’t like something then change it – for the better. And if you can’t change it, change your attitude. Karren Brady recommends you think “if I accept this challenge – what is the worst thing that will happen to me and my business?”
Direction – The whole world steps aside for those who know where they are going. You can’t change where you start, you start where you start, but it’s where you finish that you can control.
Be Positive – Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Press On has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.
