Which instinctive habits do you have?
- Communicate Effectively
This is the #1 instinctive habit seen in remarkable leaders. Clear communication results in everyone understanding the leader. Each person on the team knows their expectations at all times.
- Make the Decision
Decisions are made. Process the information at hand, weigh the results both positive and negative and then make the decision. The important point to note here is to make the decision. Sometimes the decision is to defer or to not make the decision.
- Praise and saying Thank-you
Saying thank you to those around you who have helped and who are contributing to the overall goals. It is important to actually tell people you appreciate them. Try it and see what great results you get!
- Always Challenging
Set the bar high and keeping raising the bar. Do not accept the status quo. Keep challenging by asking more questions such as "Can it be done better?" and "What else can we do to improve?" Question the processes and things that are being performed and ask how it can be improved to achieve excellence.
- Seeking Help
Everyone should seek help from time to time to keep growing. Remarkable leaders look to further educate themselves by reading, attending seminars, asking experts, viewing podcasts and so forth.
