Leaders, irrespective of the fact that they are leading a start-up, non-profit or a multinational corporation, must have certain qualities to steer their companies to greater heights. Daniel Assouline the chairman and co-founder of UpClick, is such a leader. • He has the attitude, charisma, intelligence, communication skills, and compassion to make excellent leader of the people and sets them apart as an outstanding performer. • In the following paragraphs, we shall look at some of the important factors and characteristics that make people top performers and help them stand out in the crowd.
Willingness to Learn • Great leaders are invariably highly curious people who are always willing to find new and different ways of doing things. They are passionate about learning new things as well as new ways of doing things. • Great leaders are relentless upon knowing how certain things work, how certain things do not work, and what can be done to make them work. These people are well aware of their strengths and their limitations. • This enables them to approach anything with an open mind and help them keep the big picture in perspective all the time. Their passionate curiosity and their willingness to learn from their own mistakes helps them spot opportunities that may not be visible to a mediocre leader.
Exceptional leaders know and understand that smooth seas never make good leaders and as such are always willing to delve deeper to find out things that may prove to be highly beneficial for the organization in the longer run. • They are not the one who run away from challenges or are found wanting if the corporate orthodoxy needs to be challenged for smooth achievement of corporate objectives. • Daniel Assouline, the CEO of e-commerce solution provider UpClick.com,is a leader whose passionate curiosity, positive attitude, propensity to take on challenges, and willingness to learn new things has put him at the top of the game. • This has ensured that the vision and the direction of the organization he heads is on course. He knows and understands the trends that may have a long-term impact on the sector his organization is in and what needs to be done to steer clear of potential threats.
Confidence is the Name of the Game • Truly exceptional leaders have immense faith in their capabilities as well as in the abilities of their subordinates. • A person with poor self-confidence is most unlikely to come out of his comfort zone and challenge the status quo. Leaders with low self-esteem and belief are unlikely to perform well when any type or form of uncertainty strikes. • They feel that they do not have it in them to carry the day and as such will avoid taking any decision to the greatest extent possible.
Modern organizations function in an extremely chaotic and uncertain business environment. You have to deal with challenges and adversity on a daily basis. An organization that is headed by a leader who immediately runs for the cover at the slightest sign of adversity is highly unlikely to last for long. • Leaders with low confidence and esteem do not have faith in their own abilities as well as the abilities of their subordinates. They are afraid of delegation, which apart from frustration in subordinates, also leads to delayed and often wrong decision making. • Daniel Assouline, the CEO of Montreal, Canada based payment processing firm UpClick.com, is a leader who has always been known to embrace adversity and has an impeccable track record of overcoming it.
Great Leaders Have a Solid Vision • Modern leaders need to be visionary, who must possess the ability to think ahead of time. What consumers want is important, but accurately gauging their future needs and preferences is more important. • Great leaders have an uncanny ability to peak into the future and understand what the coming days are likely to be. They are not the prisoners of their own past who simply refuse to read the writing on the wall. • Successful leaders have a vision and the requisite communication skills to effectively and efficiently communicate this vision to their followers. They always tie their vision with the hope of a better tomorrow, which enables them to enlist all the trust and support of their followers. • Their ability to see into the future puts them in an excellent position to capitalize on future opportunities. In an ever changing business environment and shifting consumer preferences, this ability of the leader proves to be invaluable for the organization.
Conclusion • Leading a modern organization in a globalized world with all around economic uncertainty and intense competitive rivalry is not easy. • A leader has to be a visionary with a strong sense of purpose and an ability to take on challenges head on. • Daniel Assouline the CEO of e-commerce solution providerUpClick.com, is a leader with battle hardened confidence who revels in embracing adversity.
