122: 6 Key Components of a Successful L.E.A.D.E.R.


What does it take to be a leader? 

If you have been following me for a while, you know that I always say “take the lead, and the rest will follow.” If you have air in your lungs, you are a leader. But how do you take the lead in your life? 

In this episode of Leading Lady, I am breaking down the word LEADER, and how I use that word in many areas of my coaching. 

In my business and leadership masterclass, the word “leader” is broken down into six different modules. My book, TAKE THE LEAD, also follows the acronym L.E.A.D.E.R.: Learner’s mindset, Engagement, Authenticity, Dedication, Emotional Intelligence, and Resilience. I am breaking down what each of these means to me in my business and also giving you some tidbits so you can start thinking about how you are showing up as a leader in your life throughout this episode.

It all starts with self-leadership. How are you leading yourself? Others? Your family? Your business? These are all incredibly important aspects of your life, and I want you to be able to show up and be the leader you have always wanted to be. 

In Today’s Episode We Discuss: 

  • The power of a learner’s mindset
  • How to be more engaged in your life
  • Why you need to stay dedicated to your mission, vision, and values
  • Emotional intelligence and why it matters
  • Why you need to be resilient to be a leader

Every letter and every aspect of the L.E.A.D.E.R. acronym is equally important. They all blend and work together to help you grow as a leader. Of course, things like communication skills and organizational skills are all important as well if you want to be a great leader, but I feel like these six components really encapsulate everything I talk about in my masterclass and my book, TAKE THE LEADyou can check it out here. 

I truly believe that if you understand true self-leadership and you possess these qualities, you will be a more powerful leader in your home, organization, small business, or community.
