Be flexible

Lions have one of the most compound communications among a cat’s family. They can make a wide variety of sounds. It includes roars, moans, puffs, growls, snarls, meows, hums, and grunts. I wonder, it would be very fun listening to all these by going close to them. If you are not afraid of a lion then you must go near them else follow my lead.

How do you deal with a frustrated customer and a satisfied customer? What is your way of speaking with a motivated employee and an employee with despair? How do you ask your squad to do something, for personal benefit? How do you talk with your coworkers, older than you, and with those lads? How do you treat your effective seniors and how do you avoid those unwanted headaches?

Well, the other option for those who are afraid of a lion is, if there is a good leader in your eyes, go to them and observe properly. Notice how he talks to different people in multiple ways. Listen carefully when he roars and when he meows. Check when they strangle and when they take it lightly.

Different customers need different types of treatment. The same goes for our fellow mates, working with us. They too need varieties of treatment for their multiple diseases. Some perform after getting command, others will perform by a humble request. Some good enough will act only after getting some hints or suggestions.

Leaders are like water, fit in every circumstance. They are flexible and easily changed as per the situation. If you are dealing with people, then remember, you will get three types of people: successful, confused, and failure. It is important to know how to deal with these three creatures. If you know this, then you can work with everyone.

Leadership doesn’t mean you’re always hard with your words. A good leader has a lot of ways to talk because he does not get the same kind of people every time. As a leader, you must have different keys to open different locks. You must be well aware of your words when to command and want to be in a requesting mode. The most important and creative leader is someone who knows how to get things done without even uttering a single word. Don’t worry, this charisma comes with time and lots of hard work. Once you know, you will create magic.
