Being a leader can be rewarding and at the same time challenging. Enthusiasm is a key characteristic of being a successful leader. So what are some of the key benefits of being an enthusiastic leader?
Benefit 1: Others follow
Who would you be most likely to follow. Someone who is upbeat and focuses on results or someone who focuses on circumstances or difficulties or unfairness.
Benefit 2: People deliver more
Have you noticed that you deliver more and go that extra step when you are working alongside someone who is enthusiastic? I know I have many times during my career.
Benefit 3: You become a role model
People who want to achieve success, look to people who they already view as successful leaders to learn from them. Enthusiastic leaders become a role model and someone to learn from.
Benefit 4: You build a reputation
As someone who finds a way of achieving and inspiring others even when the going gets tough.
Benefit 5: You achieve personal success
If you are enthusiastic, authentic, inspirational to others and have a reputation for getting results, personal success will follow.
