Traits of a
Who would you consider as a role
model? A teacher, grandparent,
co-worker? What do you admire
about your role model? Is it that
they believe in themselves and in
what they are doing? Do they treat
you with respect and listen to your
ideas? Do they respond to your calls
or emails and assist in dealing with
Successful role models tend to have
certain traits. Several key areas of per-
sonal growth and development are
fundamental to leadership success:
self-confidence, a positive attitude,
leading by example, have a reputation
for being trustworthy, show integri-
ty and treating people with respect.
Do you consider yourself an effective
role model and have the traits that will
make people want to respect and take
Good role models get involved in day-
to-day work when necessary and they
stay in touch with what's happening
throughout their organisation. They
don't just sit in their office and give or-
ders, they demonstrate the actions and
values that they expect from their team.
Relying on a degree or a management
position will not help anyone become
a role model. Keeping current, staying
relevant within their organisation, in-
spiring staff members will make them
worthy of their power and authority,
not just because they are the boss.
Below are some questions that you
can ask yourself to identify where you
already lead effectively and to explore
where your skills need further devel-
• When assigning tasks to your staff,
do you consider their skills and inter-
• Do you doubt yourself and your
ability to succeed?
• When a staff member or customer
is upset, do you try to understand how
either party is feeling?
• When circumstances change, do
you struggle to know what to do?
• Do you allow personal feelings to
get in the way of performance and pro-
• Do you consider that time spent
worrying about team morale is a waste
• Do you feel threatened when some-
one criticises you?
• Do you make time to learn what
staff members require so that they can
• Do your actions show people what
you want from them?
Depending on your response, the
following is clear:
• Hard work will be needed to devel-
op leadership skills. By using the skills
continuously at work, at home and in
the community, you'll be a real asset
to the people around you.
• Doing okay as a role model but you
have the potential to do much better.
While you’ve built the foundation of
effective leadership, this is your op-
portunity to improve your skills and
become the best you can be.
A positive mindset is also associ-
ated with being a strong role model.
However, being positive is much more
than presenting a happy disposition to
the world, developing a strong sense
of balance, recognising setbacks and
problems, and also knowing how to deal
with the problems is what will make
Positive people approach situa-
tions realistically, prepared to make
the changes necessary to overcome
a problem. Negative people, on the
other hand, often give in to the stress
and pressure of the situation. This can
lead to fear, worry, distress, anger and
Emotional Intelligence offers a more
precise understanding of a specific kind
of human talent. Being able to recog-
nise your feelings and those of others
will allow for those emotions to create
strong relationships. Learning to devel-
op empathy is essential for emotional
intelligence as well as practising em-
pathic listening. Understanding an-
other person's perspective is critical
to being an effective role model.
An important trait that is key to being
an effective role model is communica-
tion. The secret to good communication
is KISS---keep it simple and smile. You
have to bear in mind the actions or re-
actions you hope your message will get
from an individual and remember that
each individual enters into the commu-
nication process with ideas and feelings
that will undoubtedly influence their
understanding of your message, and
Good role models inspire us to become successful in whatever we do.
