Defining what makes a great leader can depend on varying factors, Northstar Consulting Group in NYC advise one of the key points to becoming a great leader is 'Consistency'.
New York, NY (1888PressRelease) July 29, 2012 - Northstar Consulting Group believes the most vital characteristic of a leader is their ability to be consistent, which can ultimately lead to their ability to run a successful business. A consistent leader has a steadfast coherence to the same principles every day and always retains form regardless of the conditions they are placed into. Consistency is one of the most significant characteristics of a leader because of their ability to measure their success and change their approach if it isn't working. Consistent leaders hold themselves and their team accountable for their goals, actions, and the promises they make. Every week at Northstar Consulting Group, individuals set personal and professional goals for themselves, and team leaders are responsible for holding them accountable for those goals. If an individual sees that others in their environment are setting goals for themselves and reaching their goals on a week-to-week basis they tend to follow suit ensuring the companies productivity increases consistently.
Consistent leadership means the team always know what to expect, and know they can count on constructive coaching in any situation. At Northstar Consulting Group when concerns are voiced by a team member, it is a leader's responsibility to assist that individual in finding a solution; this often strengthens the relationship forming a stronger partnership. 'Not allowing any signs of stress or worry to show while being consistent in the steps taken to address the concern or issues raised are qualities of a great leader, we encourage people to be 'solution orientated' by assisting each other in solving problems. I believe the greatest way to lead is by example' says Bart Yates, CEO of Northstar Consulting Group.
A leader also has a responsibility to themselves not to take on too many tasks at one given time. Too much on a leader's plate can lead to inconsistencies in their every day behavior which will hurt their team. Though it is natural to want to be in control of every aspect of one's business, a successful leader knows how to delegate to others. Northstar Consulting Group believes a leader should not take on everyone's problems but instead teach those around them how to problem solve.
