Signs that hint that you are a natural born leader

There are leaders who work hard to make themselves efficient enough while there are others who are naturally inclined to lead the way. This does not mean that only a certain type of leader is a good one. But a natural born leader tends to work with his instincts and come up with ideas spontaneously. On the other hand, the other type of leader has to wrack his brains and produce the same kind of output. Well it won’t be wrong to say that the first type has an instinctive approach whereas the second one has an analytical one. Then how can you distinguish between the two?

3 ways to recognize a natural born leader

1.   Persuasive power

 Every leader needs to have a particular vision. But the leader alone can’t achieve the goal he has set. However efficient he may be, he can carry out a given task only with the support of his entire team. In order to turn that vision into a reality, he needs to gain his team’s faith in the same. This is where a natural born leader stands out. The leader is responsible for persuading his team to believe in his vision and work unitedly to achieve the desired goal. There can be times when certain team members are not really sure about a particular decision but such a leader will smoothly convince them by giving the right reasons.

2.   Knowing the team’s potential

There is a superficial misconception that a leader is only responsible for making sure that the work is done on time and also correctly. But a true leader does not just do his job but also puts in effort to see that his team unleashes its true potential. He assigns work to each member accordingly in a considerate fashion. Also, such a leader knows when a certain member is not putting in enough effort. On discovering this, a natural leader motivates the member to put in his best. When someone else shows confidence in you, you automatically put in more effort. This ultimately leads to better results. This is where such leadership skills helps bring out the true potential of the team as a whole.

3.   Never giving up

Optimism is one of the key factors which separates a normal leader from a good one. Especially in the case of a natural born leader, he will not give up on a particular task till it has not been completed successfully. This is because his basic instinct is to fulfil an aim under any circumstances. A natural leader will pass on this attitude to his team mates as well. He will not let the team give up easily and abort the project. Instead he will keep looking for alternate ways to try to make things work. Even in a problematic situation, such a leader will not get disheartened. He will get pumped up to find a solution to get his team out of that problem.
