Leadership: How to Become a Leader | Leadership Success

Simon Alexander Ong | Life Coach & Business Strategist

Successful leadership is about creating more leaders by empowering those that you are responsible for and creating a safe place for them to explore, experiment and improve. As Bob Burg and John David Mann noted, ‘your influence is determined by how abundantly you place other people’s interests first. Even if you don’t happen to occupy a traditional leadership position, that doesn’t mean you’re not in a position to influence others, to inspire and empower others, to be the catalyst for others’ greatness. To champion their success; to hold them up.’ Some of the characteristics of successful leadership shared in this video are that it’s not about you but those that you are in a privileged position to serve; the importance of self-awareness; and, cultivating a space and culture that places employee wellbeing and growth at its core.
