Top Leadership Qualities for Team Growth and Personal Development


These are the things that you need to be aware of as a leader, and we're going to go through them really quick. There are fourteen or fifteen things that we need to cover, and we've already gone over visioning and the ability to dream. It's possible to sell 20 homes this year and then sell 400 homes three years down the road.

Thinking holistically is when you don't solve the chronic problems in your business immediately. You step back, analyze the root causes, and then approach them in a new way.

This goes without saying, but honesty and strength are very important. Things can get very tough, especially when you're in that scaling stage and things go sideways.

Fairness and reasonableness, thoroughness and persistence, and a willingness to listen are all very important to you as a leader. I've become a lot better at these things, and I did this by really being present with people. Luckily my team was pretty good at calling me out on this sort of stuff, so that helped me a lot.

Calmness and consistency are also really important. Consistency is key, because, as team leaders, we can be exhausting to work with at times.

Protectiveness over your team, as well as patience, are critical in developing talent. This is especially true when you're training new team members.

Commitment to excellence can take you a long way. I've been focusing on creating a world-class business, and that term is very important to me. I like to compare my business to other world-class businesses and that's what I'm gunning for.

Curiosity and resilience can take you a long way in your business. There are a few years when you're growing your team that will be just plain painful. Going from a small team to a big entity is not easy, and I don't think there is any way around it.

Engaging with your team and avoiding cynicism is important as well, because your team know when you're rolling your eyes or groaning at a pile of work.

So, how do you embody these qualities? It's a long-term process that make this level of leadership and management second nature. This is not a difficult process, it just takes commitment. To change aspects of your behavior, you must look at yourself objectively. Think about real life situations where you could have acted differently. It takes time to form new habits, but they're hard to break once you develop them.
