The One Quality To Look For In Employees That Guarantees Their Success

Not all of your employees will have this quality, nor will most of them display this quality, but you will know it when you see it. This quality is leadership.

You can usually spot this quality in newbie's right away.

The leader is the employee that goes the extra mile, the one who doesn't have to be babysat, or constantly held by the hand. They are the one who knows what needs to be done, the one who knows how you...the manager, supervisor, boss thinks...

These leaders in the making show up every day with the sole purpose of making your job easier. If something happened to you tomorrow, this person could probably jump into the captain's seat. Not everyone is born a leader, but leaders can be nurtured. The best way to develop great leaders is to be a great leader yourself. Why? because leaders lead by example. If you are already a great leader, manager, boss etc...your employees are already getting an excellent  education in leadership.

I'm always reading about great leaders. Why? because I want to know how they think, and work. I want to be like them. There are a ton of leadership guru's, and books out there, and you may have your favourites. Here are a few of mine:

• John C. Maxwell

• Harvey Mackay

• Marcus Buckingham

Start developing your junior talent today, praise them,  nudge them towards their potential, recognize their accomplishments, and reward their hard work because they will be your company's leaders tomorrow and years from now.
