Hunter Cetta has been called many names since he was a young boy, but none more popular than “the kid with the bagpipes”. When he started school in his hometown of Pinellas County, Florida, the school board thought it might be a good idea to give him a name that would promote unity and discipline. So he went by his middle name – Cetta – and for a while, it worked. He excelled as a student, scoring the highest marks in the subject matter that he studied. But when he started doing community work, he realized that he wanted something besides a GED.
So he enrolled in a leadership development course. And although he was disappointed with the lack of classroom instruction, he was surprised by the results. He came away with some great skills. The class included leadership assessments that were designed to determine whether someone had the qualities of a successful leader. And in so doing, he discovered that he had something else in common with leaders: He was a “loner”.
To be a leader, you must establish yourself as being special. You have to exude a cool presence that others will want to be around. You have to inspire trust. You have to make people feel comfortable so that they’ll listen to you. At the same time, being a loner doesn’t mean that you have to keep to yourself.
It’s important to know who you are and what you do. Once you know what your gifts and talents are, then you can share them. Being a leader is all about inspiring people to become what you want them to be. People want to be around leaders who are genuinely interested in them as people and as a person, not just as an individual.
The thing that most people have a problem with is believing that they can be effective leaders. They’d rather be part of a group than assume that they have the skills and personality traits required for leadership. Hunter reminds us that we all have the ability to be effective leaders if we simply take the time to become one.
When you’re seeking to be a leader, it helps to learn to be more likable. Loner status may give some people the idea that they’re more capable of handling the tasks of leadership. As Hunter points out, however, if you’ve seen as a loner, then people will be afraid of associating with you. This means that instead of listening to you and what you have to say, they’ll become bored with you. It’s much better to convince people that you’re a good leader by being more approachable and engaging.
You also need to be a communicator. Communicating effectively is one of the most important skills for leadership. Although leaders are supposed to be “leaders of the pack,” it doesn’t mean that they can’t be convincing or reassuring. If you’re not a good speaker, you’ll find that it’ll be more difficult to get others to see the vision that you have for the company. Once you have a message that’s been clearly understood, others will be more inclined to follow your lead.
To be a leader, it helps to have a solid foundation. This comes from having a strong personal foundation but also have a solid educational background. Having a strong foundation helps to pave the way to success in leadership. Your personal and educational background will give you an idea of what kind of leader you’re capable of being.
When you look at successful leaders, you’ll see that they all share certain characteristics. One of the things that they have in common is that they have exceptional interpersonal skills. They’re able to put people at their ease and make them feel comfortable. Leaders also know how to manage time effectively and they know when to delegate responsibilities. They also know how to work through problems in a positive manner. By having these skills, you can see that you’re well on your way to developing into a great leader.
Another characteristic that you should take into consideration is effective communication. Effective communication is necessary for any type of organization or group. People pay attention to what you’re saying and this is because you have great verbal skills. It’s important to remember that you’re dealing with people who have psychological and emotional baggage as well and that means you have to be able to keep your cool when you’re talking to them.
As you can see, you can become a great leader without being born one. You just need to have the right attitude and the determination to become a leader. Loner hunters were some of the best leaders in history. You can follow in their footsteps and use your natural strengths to lead people in an effective manner. Once you do this, you’ll find that you have a great opportunity to take control of your life
