Tony Robbins Blueprint of Effective Leadership for Young Leaders
Leadership is a process whereby an individual influences a group of individuals to achieve a common goal. The term leadership is used in many forms to describe many things but is ultimately the act of leading people in a certain direction. Learning how to be a more effective leader is within everyone’s grasp – whether you lead multiple teams, an entire company or just one staff member, you can develop your leadership qualities.
“Having a great idea, and assembling a team to bring that concept to life is the first step in creating a successful business venture. While finding a new and unique idea is rare enough; the ability to successfully execute this idea is what separates the dreamers from the entrepreneurs. However you see yourself, whatever your age may be, as soon as you make that exciting first hire, you have taken the first steps in becoming a powerful leader. When money is tight and startup fundraising is required, stress levels are high, and the visions of instant success don’t happen like you thought, it’s easy to let those emotions get to you, and thereby your team”, writes Tanya Prive for Forbes.
What are the blueprints of effective leadership? Here are 4 of Tony Robbins pick:
They are decisive
Decision making is the force that shapes destiny. Your power as a leader comes from your ability to be decisive – and having the guts to make tough decisions. While many people waste precious time over making the ‘right’ decision, as a leader you must be willing to draw a line in the sand and make decisions no one else is willing to make. When you do, you can positively shape your life and lives of people around you.
They are Resourceful
When people fail to achieve, they often say they are missing resources like time, money, people and so on. Yet, the top leaders in the world know resources are never the problem; the real problem is a lack of resourcefulness. You can always get the resources you need as a leader if you’re resourceful enough – and the truth is this: The ultimate resource is resourcefulness.
They Serve a Higher Purpose than themselves
The greatest leaders in history are purpose-driven; they serve something more than themselves. Motive does matter. If your motive as a leader is to simply get someone to do something for you, you may be able to strategize a way to do it – but it’s when you serve a greater good that you create a legacy of leadership that lasts beyond your lifetime.
Leaders are masters of influence; they know how to propel themselves and others to move forward in life. In order to influence people, they know what already influences them. They know who they are, what their ‘brand’ is, and who they are to others. As a result, they influence others to set a new standard for themselves that those people live by when they aren’t there. When you master the skill of influence as a leader, you control the ultimate force for giving, creating, sharing and contributing more.
