This is the second post in Datavo's Business Leaders Attributes by Letter series. If you missed our first post, please read 7 Amazing "A" Aspects of Awesome Business Leaders to catch up.
In the meantime, let's get started with the 'B's....
It is not necessary for great leaders to be brilliant at all times. But it is necessary for them to be radiant and show innovation at key moments.
You must be better than your competition. A great leader knows this and strives for it everyday. Team members want to be on a winning team and it is the leaders job to prove and show they are the best at their game.
They say you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar. A great leader knows how to be kind while still exuding competence and confidence.
Good leaders are liberal in providing the way they recognize their team members achievements. Being bountiful with gifts and favors when your team members earn them will grow your employee morale.
Always exude sincerity, people are aware when you are being fake. Your team will feel more comfortable if they trust your integrity.
Don't be paralyzed by fear or failure. Team members want leaders that make a stand and take appropriate risks with proper preparation.
Meet your team with a beaming and sincere smile and see how your morale and productivity increase immediately.
To end the list, here a few words that an bold business leader would never want to be associated with. For the 'B' list - baffled, ballistic, bashful, beastly, boring, bizarre or brutal.
Feel free to leave any words you think we left off or would have on your own list in the comments. Make sure to look out for our next list of 'C' adjectives.
