Complete One highlight the 6 differences between great and bad leaders
Newcastle-based, direct marketing and sales specialists, Complete One believe that strong leadership is the foundation for success in any area of life. Here they have highlighted the 6 differences between great and bad leaders.
Complete One believe that excelling in leadership will result in success. As an expanding company that frequently talent scout, one of the main transferable skills they look for is the ability to lead. Here, Complete One examines the 6 differences between great and bad leaders.
- Great leaders see potential in people and can nurture it.
Bad leaders fail to identify potential, and instead only focus on the negative, and find fault.
- Great leaders are always positive and encourage others to do better.
Bad leaders are negative, and are always blaming others for their failures rather than taking responsibility,
- Great leaders motivate and inspire people to learn, grow and develop.
Bad leaders are only interested in their own progression; they aren’t concerned about the growth of others.
- Great leaders have the ability to recognise people’s strengths and place the best people in the right positions to help them perform well.
Bad leaders exploit people to the benefit of themselves.
- Great leaders are open to new ideas and are always looking to innovate and improve.
Bad leaders fear change and are unwilling to take any risks.
- Great leaders appreciate the efforts of their team and recognise and reward them for those efforts.
Bad leaders don’t value their team, and they have the attitude that every member of their team is replaceable.
