7 Inspiring 'I' Indicators of Impressive Leaders

It's time of our 'I' installment of Datavo's Business Leaders Attributes by Letter series. You can catch up by reading 7 Helpful 'H' Hallmarks of Honorable Leaders.

Let's start getting inspired with the 'I's...

Albert Einstein was said to believe that - “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” That Knowledge is an understanding of “what is” — imagination is an appreciation of what can be.

Having the ability to learn or understand things or to deal with new or difficult situations quickly make you a valuable asset. 

Great leaders enlighten their teams and ignite the possibilities - they make their employees want to excel and be better.

The longer you work with an organization, the deeper you develop relationships with coworkers. You will have a natural affinity for some people, and others simply may not “click” with you. Great leaders know how to remain impartial and will not play favorites when it comes to business decision-making.

Someone once said, “It is far more impressive when others discover your good qualities without your help.” Be impressive with your actions and your leadership, and people will take note themselves.

Businesses these days are composed of many different departments such as sales, customer service, and accounting. A great leader is an integrative force that combines these separate departments of the organization and unites them to pursue common goals.

Inspiring leaders have a clearly defined purpose for their work. It is a higher motivation around the entirety of what they do—which critically involves others.

To end our list, let's go over 7 'I' words that impressive leaders would never want to be - irate, irresponsible, illogical, immoral, idiotic, improper, or irrelevant.

Feel free to leave any words you think we left off or would have on your own list int the comments. Make sure to look out for our next list of 'J' adjectives.

6 Simple Rules of Etiquitte for Using the Telephone

So.... we've all been on the receiving end of a phone call gone bad or know a person that just doesn't return calls. Where the person on the other end just forgot all the manners they ever learned in life and turned into a crazed person especially if your a customer service representative.

Here's a couple rules of phone etiquette to make sure you don't become one of those dreaded people.

1. Answer the phone politely. Whether it's your land line, your cell or somebody else's phone, always answer in a courteous fashion. A simple hello is good, followed by a bit of identification, so that the other person knows they have reached the intended target.

2. Don't eat while talking. The sounds of eating coming through the telephone are gross, rude and should never happen.

3. Speak slowly and clearly. Whether you are on the phone at home, or out in public, always speak just loudly enough to be heard by the person on the other end.

4. Leave your number if you leave a message. If you call someone and get their voice-mail and choose to leave a message, always leave them a method of getting back to you. Just do it, it's expected and polite.

5. Return phone calls. Nothing makes a person feel ignored more than someone not returning their phone calls. It only takes a second. Just do it!

6. Ask permission before placing people on hold. People don't like to talk to themselves, and that is what will happen if you place people on hold without letting them know before hand. 

We hope these tips were helpful. For more information about Datavo visit our website at
