The 4 Ps of leadership

The beginning of the year is always a great time to be inspired. And things that start with the same letter are easy to remember. That being said, here are my 4 Ps of leadership…

Positivity: Keeping your team positive in the hard times, is the key to maintaining a strong team. When things are going well, it’s easy to motivate, but keeping that positivity level high all the time can be a challenge. Lead your team well and provide them with hope and positivity no matter what is going on in your office.

Patience: Do you want to turn reactions into responses? Want to see situations from another perspective? Want your employees to know you care about the things they have to say? Want them to respect you? If these things matter to you, start with patience.

Passion: What drives your team? Are they powered by passion? If you’re not passionate about your job, your employees won’t be either. Share you vision with your team, get them excited about what they do and watch them succeed, both personally and as a team.

Persistence: Things won’t always go as planned. When adversity comes along, instill confidence. You have to show your team how to keep working hard and plow ahead until things get better. The more you persist, the more successful you’ll become.
