Lessons from Jim Rohn for noni IPCs, by Ander Barillas
If you desire to run with the vision of Jim Rohn for leadership, this is the best time. Ander Barillas is here to give us the nuggets that makes for excellent leadership, both in business and life.

"Ia’ Orana dear consultants,

This week I want to share with you the words of Jim Rohn. He says that if you want to be a leader who attracts quality people, the key is to become a person of quality yourself. Leadership is the ability to attract someone to the gifts, skills, and opportunities you offer as an owner, as a manager, as a parent. He calls leadership the great challenge of life.

What is important in leadership is refining your skills. All great leaders keep working on themselves until they become effective. Here are some specifics:

1. Learn to be strong but not rude: It is an extra step you must take to become a powerful, capable leader with a wide range of reach. Some people mistake rudeness for strength. It’s not even a good substitute.

2. Learn to be kind but not weak: We must not mistake kindness for weakness. Kindness isn’t weak. Kindness is a certain type of strength. We must be kind enough and considerate enough to lay it on the line. We must be kind enough to tell it like it is and not deal in delusion.

3. Learn to be bold but not a bully: It takes boldness to win the day. To build your influence, you’ve got to walk in front of your group. You’ve got to be willing to take the first arrow, tackle the first problem, discover the first sign of trouble.

These are three of the 6 points that Jim Rohn talks about. Next week I will send you the last three points.
