Have you ever wondered what qualities you need to help you be a successful boss?CLICK HERE FOR YOUR FREE GUIDE TO EVALUATE IF YOU ARE RIGHT FOR BOSS-HOOD
In the book Leadership for the Recovering Quantoid, The Biz Bucks Guy expounds on “8 Qualities of Leadership Rightness”. A person considering moving into a leadership role should do a little self-evaluation with these 8 qualities to know if “boss-hood” is RIGHT for them. A person expanding their business and hiring their first employees should make sure they are confident they have these 8 qualities to help them be an awesome boss before they hire that first employee.
Why did we bold “RIGHT”? Well, that is because we also have identified 12 Skills to know if you are READY for leadership. We call those the “Twelve Skills of Leadership Readiness”. We will go through these skills at a later date or you can check it out in Leadership for the Recovering Quantoid. But the important part is recognizing that you need to be RIGHT and READY to be a boss and to lead people to success.
And the even more important part is that you can develop (or learn, or grow) each of these skills. Some may be inherent to you or your personality, but most likely there may be a few that you might not be so strong at. Recognizing your weakness, you can work and flex those boss-hood muscles until you are ready to compete in your boss-hood body building competition.
The list of 8 Qualities of Leadership Rightness comes from a life time of experience, some good, some bad. They are:
Apply Judgement and Take Risk
Be Able to Work Long Hours
Desire to Make a Bigger Difference
Be Willing to Leave Prior Expertise
