Behind every successful business is a great leader. If you want to become the best leader you can be, you not only have to know what to do, you have to know what practices to avoid. These are the missteps that will breed failure.
One thing weak leaders often do is over-commit. They prioritize everything and bite off more than they can chew, which makes their team overworked and stressed out. The cure for this is simple self-discipline. A great leader can manage time and make sure everything that needs to get done does. Poor leaders also often get ahead of themselves with a “ready-shoot-aim” mentality. Don’t rush through tasks; take the time to make sure your team is getting it done right the first time and you’ll actually save time in the long run. Patience really is a virtue in the best leaders. Don’t take out frustrations on your team members. If you’re in crunch time, you still have to remain calm and steer the ship. A leader who lashes out at his team usually has a team of people afraid to speak their minds. Avoid these sins, and you’ll be on your way to becoming a great leader!
