    List of Leadership Attributes by Jim Rohn 

    Inspired by Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich, here is the list of great leadership attributes as summarized by Jim Rohn.

    1. Unwavering Courage. Sometimes, our courage wave a little. Bend but not break. But you need to stay. The courage to step into the territory that might be uncomfortable. Faith to overcome fear. Courage to overcome our doubts.

    2. Self-Control. The essence of life itself. Opposites and conflict. Necessary to be a good leader.

    3. Keen Sense of Justice. Sense of utilizing on what is right and what is wrong. Sense of being fair. Know on what is a good balance. Fairness. Justice. Otherwise, the enterprise won’t work. If power is the rule of the day, if might is the rule of the day, it is a catastrophe.

    4. Definiteness of Decision. Indecision is the thief of opportunity. If you don’t decide, the opportunity will slip away. For example, in time management, don’t start the day until you have it finished.

    5. Definite Plans. You must have definite plans to be an effective leader.

    6. Do More Than What You Get Paid For. The harvest is yet to come. Means you are getting for the next move up. By doing more, is like having an investment. Do more and see what it will do for you. Just render the service with a vision of the future.

    7. Pleasing Personality. One is working personality. Personality in the public, it count so much in the workplace, in the business. However, also develop your personality in private. Practice when there is few, for you are ready when there are hundreds. Utilize Your Influence.

    8. Give the Gift of Attention. Attention is so powerful.

    9. Sympathy and Understanding. A leader must have sympathy and understanding. Develop this early of our lives, all of our lives. Deep emotional feeling. Understand what it meant to be poor, to be short, to have lack of knowledge, challenge. That kind of leadership quality is so powerful.

    10. Mastery of the Detail. The drama is in the detail.

    11. Willingness to Assume Full 100% Responsibility. The responsibility must end with you. Everyone can make a mess but you must be responsible for fixing it and it will end with you.

    12 Cooperation. If two or three agree, nothing is impossible.

    13. Vision. A vision for your own course to follow. A vision for your health, for your wealth, for your family. A vision must lead others. A vision for the people you are close to. Without vision, we die, we perish. But if we have vision, it will help us touch people.

    The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Summary 

    One of the most influential book that I have ever read is the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. And here is the summary of this book:


    7 Habits of Highly Effective People Summary



    Habit #1: Be Proactive

    Change yourself first. If you want to change something, you must first change yourself. Change starts from you, from within, and highly effective people make their decision to improve their lives through the things that they can influence, rather than by simply reacting to the external forces in their environment.


    Habit #2: Begin With The End in Mind

    Be a result oriented. This second habit is one of my favorite. I apply this in small tasks, and in looking for people to do the job.

    In here, you have to develop a principle-centered personal mission statement. Then, extend the mission statement into long-term goals based on personal principles.


    Habit #3: Put Things First

    Determine what’s important. Knowing what’s really important is critical in making decisions. There are lots of distractions in life that appears as important, but in reality, it is not.

    Your actions should reflect and your time should be spend on things that fits into your personal mission statement, observing the proper balance between production and building production capacity.

    You must learn to identify your key roles that you take on in your life , and make time for each of them.


    Habit #4: Think Win/Win

    Deal or No Deal? Whenever you make decision, think on a “Win/Win” deal. Seek agreements and relationships that are mutually beneficial. In cases, where this “Win/Win” deal cannot be achieved, you must learn on how to accept the fact that agreeing to a “No Deal” may be the best alternative.

    In developing an organizational culture, make sure that you reward a “Win/Win” behavior among employees and avoid unintentional rewarding win/lose behavior.


    Habit #5: Seek First to Understand, Then To Be Understood

    Learn to Listen. Stephen Covey presents this habit as the most important principle of interpersonal relations.

    Seek to understand the other person first, and only then, try to be understood.

    This habit of effective listening is not simply echoing what the other person has said, but rather, it is putting oneself in the perspective of the other person.

    You should learn how to listen emphatically for both feelings and meaning of the words that has been said.


    Habit #6: Synergize

    Trustful communication. Through this trustful communication, you must find ways on how to leverage individual differences to create a whole that is greater than the sum of the parts.

    Through mutual understanding and trust, one can solve conflicts and find a better solution than would have been obtained through either person’s own solution.


    Habit #7: Sharpen the Saw

    Maintain your balance. Maintaining your balance through physical, mental, social/emotional, and spiritual dimensions are critical in improving yourself to be a successful and effective person.

    Take time out from production to build production capacity – through personal renewal of the said dimensions.


    Enjoy and learn from this short summary of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.

    To your success,

    - Linda

    The worst advice you can ever have is to ask advice which is free from a person who does not know anything to what you are talking about.

    “You have a clean slate every day you wake up. You have a chance every single morning to make that change and be the person you want to be. You just have to decide to do it. Decide today’s the day. Say it; This is going to be my day.”
