The 5 Essential Skills You Need to Be A Successful Leader

I get asked an interesting question quite frequently, “How do I become a successful leader people want to do business with?”

In order for us to achieve the success we want to achieve as leaders, we have to do things differently than we’ve ever done them before. When you are a leader in your field, prospective clients will easily want to follow and work with you if your vision and purpose help them.

There are a lot of different answers to this question. I put together a list of skills that, when deployed simultaneously, position you to a point where people will seek you out as a leader and people will want to work with you because of your superior leadership skills.

Here are the Top 5 Skills all Great Leaders Have:


Communication is the backbone of success! Effective communication is vital for every single entrepreneur, sales professional, business owner, and leader. Effective communication is an extremely powerful technique that you can leverage. It is a great advantage that makes sales easy, effective, and efficient.

Years ago, I heard a quote from Brian Tracy “Your ability to communicate with others will account for a full 85% of success in your business and in your life.” There is immense truth behind this quote.

The biggest mistake leaders make is that they assume communication has happened.

It doesn’t matter who you are, communication is the responsibility of the communicator. Ask yourself this, are you listening to understand and speaking to be heard? Or, are you simply assuming communication has happened?

Leaders set themselves apart when they have the ability to share clear messages and make complex ideas easy to understand for everyone.

To do this, you need to understand not only your communication style, but also the communication style of the person you are interacting with. Mastering the science and skillset behind communication can be your best tool for success.

Active Listening

Active listening means listening to understand instead of listening to respond. It’s a skill that requires genuine engagement. It means understanding the other person beyond their words – what they are truly communicating.

Our words can inaccurately represent how we actually think and feel. A great leader understands that the message behind the words tells more than the words ever do. If you listen to connect with the person, you hear their beliefs, intentions, and desires.

By truly understanding people, you can tailor your products, services, and strategies to meet their needs. Active listening also enhances leadership capabilities, as leaders who listen attentively can inspire trust, boost morale, and make more informed decisions.

It fosters stronger relationships by demonstrating respect, empathy, and understanding towards others. It builds trust and rapport, as people feel valued and heard when their thoughts and feelings are acknowledged.

Active Listening


In business, it is absolutely critical to master the art of negotiation. Poor negotiations can cripple your business. One of the most important things leaders need to do is negotiate with clients and team members.

While most negotiation strategies seem like common sense, it’s not uncommon for people to get caught up in the emotion of the moment and ignore their basic instincts.

However, what we know is that allowing our emotions to rule will inevitably lead us down the path of failure. It’s important for anyone who wants success in negotiations to understand how to manage your emotions and also avoid unwarranted feelings which could cause mistakes at any moment during these difficult discussions with another person or business associate.

The one thing you have to remember is this…check your ego at the door and keep focused on the reason for the negotiations. Being prepared and creating an outcome that is a win-win for both parties is how a true leader negotiates.


Rapport is the ability to create an authentic relationship quickly. The best leaders out there are skilled in building rapport with anyone and everyone they meet. Often, they are able to do this through active listening – by observing communication and processing queues and then matching them.

The best leaders build rapport quickly, authentically, and with integrity.

People do business with people they trust. Learn to fine-tune your physiology, body language, tonality, positive word choice, and knowledge of processing styles to help you be in sync with, connect with, and build rapport with potential customers and team members.

The reality is people don’t ever make a buying decision based on the product, service, or solution that you’re providing. People invest in and follow the person that they align with, trust, connect with, and have a rapport with.

The fact is, if a connection isn’t made, people will seek out someone else to do business with.


Self Development

Industry leaders are constant learners. They continually seek to learn from other people’s experiences. Whether it’s books, courses, or coaches – they are constantly learning. They live by the mantra, “What you feed grows and what you starve dies.”

Our entire life is a program that we run. We are the authors of it. We can change it.

Instead of avoiding the areas in your life where you feel weak, put your focus on them, then devise a plan of solutions.

Stretch the boundaries of your comfort zone because your comfort zone is where dreams go to die. Insert yourself into the right environments to sharpen your tools. Improving your mindset and developing leadership skills will help you to build a strong foundation for business and team growth.

Investing in personal development not only helps you grow as a person but as a leader, too. It allows you to become an even better version of yourself on a personal and professional level.

There is no failure, only feedback. Allow yourself to learn from that feedback. If you avoid the learnings and push them away, you miss the opportunity to evolve. Everything that presents itself in our lives is an opportunity to grow and learn.

If we push away those learnings, we will end up repeating the mistakes. Those learnings are what you need to take your life, your success, and your bank account to the next level. Love yourself through learning!

The Secret to Becoming a Successful Leader

Confidence is the key to success for leaders. And, confidence is a product of your mindset.

A confident entrepreneur, sales professional, business owner, or leader finds it easy to explore new opportunities, new ideas, and new strategies.

  • Be the leader you deserve to be.
  • Be the leader your prospective clientele and your team is waiting for.
  • Be the leader that they need and they want.
  • Be the leader that you dream of so you can have the business that you’ve always wanted.
  • Be the leader that people want to do business with, that people constantly seek out!

Mastering relationships, achieving the proper mindset, and attaining the necessary motivation will catapult you away from failure and on to your journey of greatness as a leader. So, how do you do it?
