The joy of seeing dreams come to life and people just pursuing their passion and grow in their areas of expertise.
However, it’s not quite rosy it takes so much to become a great leader. When business coaches list the traits of great leaders, vision, passion, persistence, resilience, hardwork are top of the list.
But it takes more than that. One trait that is mostly forgotten or rather overlooked is courage. Business leaders make tough choices and juggle competing priorities. This calls for courage just as much as it tests decision-making abilities.
It is courage that differentiates a person who ‘juggles’ tasks from a leader who handles stress efficiently. A leader who sees problems as opportunities to innovate.
For some leaders, it takes more than courage to handle businesses, hold a top position in the corporate world. And at the end of the day, motherhood/fatherhood comes calling and they still remain sane.
