Entrepreneurial leadership traits and/or skills can be the difference maker in being an average or successful entrepreneur. Some people possess them almost naturally and others may need to work at them. And the good news? Just about anyone can be a better entrepreneur when refining at the very least, these 3 skills.
You see, entrepreneurial leadership includes motivating, inspiring and to some degree managing a group of people. It means moving people towards a common goal or purpose. For some, this may be more meaningful than others — but the leadership skills don’t vary. Leadership is about treating and offering people the ‘same’.
Additionally, it means that you are consistent in the value you bring and example you set. Regardless of where others are at. So sure, you may devote more time to those putting in the ‘work’, or clients who are far more including to take action but, your delivery is a constant.
And so, this brings us to today’s post; we are going to share 3 leadership skills that you (in our opinion) should implement in your business (and your life) today.
3 Entrepreneurial Leadership Traits for a Successful Business
The 3 leadership traits (and/or skills) we want to talk about today are these;
Clear Communication is Essential
This one is probably the most important. Especially with the amount of digital communication that we partake in daily. Whether this be through emails or messenger, text messages or in person — communication across the board is key.
The more verbal communication you can do for example, through voice messaging even will help improve your overall communication with employees, team members, customers, etc.
You want to ensure that you are explicit and avoid generalizations. If you need something specific – say so. Do your best to eliminate the assumption that ‘they’ understand. Ask them! You could go as far as finding a delicate way in asking them to repeat what your expectations are or the task even.
The clearer you can be the more successful the outcome. They sort of go hand in hand.
So, we’ve nailed communication but what is it without self-belief?
How can you expect others to believe in you if you don’t believe in yourself? Seriously — ask yourself this question.
An entrepreneurs who possess these leadership traits has confidence gained from years of experimenting. And, at times failing, and learning.
They are aware of their strengths and weaknesses, and demonstrate their skills without excessive pride or even arrogance. An entrepreneurial leader is very self-assured. When this is evident to others, it almost can become contagious. Your own belief will instil belief into others.
There are many who strive for leadership but without the belief that it can be achieved it can start to feel like a hamster wheel. And, when others feel that disconnect it becomes harder for them to follow.
Give them a reason to buy into you. Believing in them is among leadership traits for sure, but it starts with you.
Last and certainly not least …
Creating and Nurturing Culture and Community
Admittedly, this is probably among our favorite leadership traits. It is one that we have become super strong in and take great pride in as well. Creating culture and community is what breeds retention.
It is attractive to onlookers be it prospective customers or business partners.
Create a culture that people can’t help but want to be a part of. Evaluate the environment you are in. Is it conducive to others? (keep in mind this can be on and offline) Is it fun but productive? Are others enjoying it and saying so? Take note of how you feel when you are working with your team.
If the culture is not where you want it to be —
Work hard at getting it to where it feels AMAZING.
And guess what? A strong culture and community is nurtured by the above mentioned leadership traits; communication and self-belief. If we can help you in this area at all – say so!
