Today, I witnessed yet another fall of a leadership.
I understand the fact that being a leader is not an easy job. While there are some leaders who have been fighting for the title, I have known quite a few, although not personally, who wish they have not been given that position. Being a leader means greater responsibility, bigger amanah not only in this life but carries on to the next life.
In any organization, big or small, good leaders should listen to the cries of those who are under them. If you are planning to do otherwise, my sincere advice would be – drop the idea of becoming a leader. You are going to destroy the company you are leading.
To all leaders, an easy way to know whether you are doing a good job as a leader or not is when you EARNED RESPECT from your team. Yup, respect is one of the key indicators whether or not you have become successful leaders. And if you haven’t realised, respect need to be earned not be bought or gained through fear. You can opt the final two ways. But bear in mind that they won’t last even with a tiniest trial comes to play.
