Leadership is about taking a positive approach

See also

Far too many leaders climbing the ladder think it is important to show others how smart or experienced they are. This is not always the best as inexperience creates an aura of overrated intelligence – at least to the aspiring leader.

Dale Carnegie was one of the greatest speakers of the 20th century. Even as great a public speaker as he was he had times of deliberate silence.

“Any fool can criticize, condemn and complain,” Carnegie said, “and most do.”

Carnegie understood that negativity did not serve a positive purpose. He preferred to dwell on positive aspects of individuals, teams and companies. His book, “How to Win Friends and Influence People is still widely read today by people seeking to improve their relationships and career. In spite of the seemingly simple advice and wisdom in the book it took him years of research. He studied the greatest leaders and success stories of those he had met during his life.

To be a leader you need to have people follow you. This becomes especially possible once you have learned to approach to the situations and people you confront on a daily basis.

Follow Carnegie’s advice and speak up when you have positive input and yu will be on the path to great leadership.
