How Leaders Learn. 


Although failures are inevitable along any Leadership journey, succumbing to a herd mentality is amongst the worse type of failure—excessive compliance and deference to conventional wisdom, should be a red flag on your Leadership journey.

All Leaders have a contrarian streak—a tendency to consider what others won’t think, study or learn and a willingness to go where others won’t tread. It is not unusual for Leaders to occasionally make a decision that proves wrong. Because there is nobody else around who will take responsibility for a decision, the good news, is that Leaders learn from their failures by necessity.


Leaders love challenges, turning around a failing business or re-organising an underperforming organisation. Before investors plough more of their hard-earned money into an enterprise, they want to have the comfort of having a Leader who can perform beyond their expectations. Otherwise, they would do it themselves!

Leaders learn to plan and visualise how their business or organisation should look like in the future.  Leaders work towards their goals by thinking about the steps needed, when, how, and by whom. 

Leaders develop an ability to take intelligent risks and drive the changes required whilst focusing on their goal.  They share their vision with people they are responsible for because Leaders know that success comes only through people.


Gaining Trust

The primary job of a Leader is to get the best out of the people they are responsible for. To gain their trust and confidence through improving performance and being consistent. Leaders practise and develop a mindset that takes responsibility through building trust. The key is to build momentum through a commitment to winning people's confidence in your Leadership.


Leaders do not seek glory but work hard to exceed their ambition. They have experienced failure and learnt how to bounce back - quickly.
