There are companies run by average leaders, and then there are visionaries like Elon Musk, who inspire others to believe in big visions.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk offers words of wisdom that you, as a leader, can learn from.
The five leadership traits outlined below will help you to become an inspiring leader:
🗸 Be Obsessed and Obsessive: Many leaders will share a mindset to “just get it done.” Musk is obsessed with what he does. He devotes his time to shaping ideas. Be obsessed with what you do.
🗸 Love the Brand like a Religion: If you want others to love your brand, you must love it. Pour your heart into your work.
🗸 Transform your Industry by Doing the Impossible: Doing the impossible starts with a grand vision. Leaders who lack a vision can’t inspire a team. Always strive to go the extra mile.
🗸 Ignore the Vision Stealers and Dream Crushers: Musk is not swayed by those who doubt him. If you are told as a leader, you can’t do something, get back up, and prove everyone wrong.
🗸Be a Rare Breed in Your Industry: Don’t be an average company… Be a rare breed. Leading a company that doesn’t feel like the rest will allow you to set your brand up for success.
Step your game up. Be a difference-maker.
