Do you want to be a civil servant? Do you want to be a leader? There are many leadership qualities that are necessary if you want to be a good leader. However, there is a lot more to being a good leader than just having good leadership qualities.
According to the famous motivational speaker Vijay Eswaran, there are five C’s of being a leader. These are all essential if you want to be a leader, and there is no way you can be a good leader if you are missing just one of these five qualities. Perhaps you can be a manager at a company, but being a true leader will be beyond your grasp.
Vijay Eswaran says that being a true servant leader means putting the needs of others above the needs of yourself. You have to be able to put the needs of the people you’re leading before your own desires and even before your own personal needs. Otherwise, you will not be a true leader and you will never gain a following of committed followers.
The first C is care. You have to truly care about the people you are leading. If you own a company, you have to truly care about the quality of the customer service. You have to truly care about your customers and really want them to enjoy themselves and get the full value for their money, and you need to really care about your employees and make sure they are getting paid and treated properly. A company that does not care about its employees will never be successful because if the employees are not happy, then the quality of their service will never be as great and the customers will never be able to get full satisfaction.
Servant leaders care without any restraint. They realize that the whole purpose they were put on this earth is to help out other people. They were not put on this earth for their own selfish needs. Therefore, they really care about others. They really care about the people around them and want them to succeed and enjoy life.
