Shannon, President of Charismatic Solutions, does more than just lead. She also encourages leadership in others by providing team members with hands-on experiences that give them the knowledge and confidence frontrunners need.
She invites people to ask her questions, watch her methods, and adopt her communication techniques. At the same time, she provides positive feedback that helps team members achieve their goals, and tips to help them move into Charismatic Solutions roles of higher responsibility.
For example, she suggests that to be a respected leader, a person should become a practiced listener. When we understand other points of view, we make better decisions, and earn the loyalty of those to whom we have listened.
To listen well, one has to be humble enough to realize the value of someone else’s opinion, so Shannon highlights the importance of humility to a leader as well. This is really nothing more than sharing credit and caring about everyone’s dreams and goals, not just our own.
Finally, Shannon points out the value of continual learning for those who want others to follow them. Especially in a fast-paced industry like ours, staying on the cutting edge requires us to make a habit of being curious and seeking out knowledge.
These are just a few of the ways that Shannon inspires leadership in our firm. Like Charismatic Solutions on Facebook to find out more.
