Vijay Eswaran is an established businessman who founded the QI Group of Companies. While he was working hard, he studied leaders such as Mother Teresa and Nelson Mandela. Through it all, he discovered a leader takes more than being the boss. Here are the leadership principles Eswaran learned to become a successful leader.
One of Eswaran’s leadership principles involves care and service. A good leader serves and cares about the people they work with and the people who support them. This is one way to have a successful company with happy customers. People tend to be more productive if they feel their leader takes care of them, and in return, they will take care of your company by providing great service.
Another leadership principle is having a vision with core values. For a person to lead they need a clear vision of the objectives and the core values to build a strong foundation. Lay the groundwork for your company so it is easier to reach goals. Furthermore, this eliminates the guesswork for employees.
Growth and sacrifice is another essential leadership principle to meet your company goals. It involves investing in the people around you. People need training and mentoring to grow. This involves sacrifice on the leader’s part. The willingness to invest time and money into the workforce is critical to a company’s growth and must be done on a regular basis. As the business grows and evolves, the people should do the same.
Follow these leadership principles to become a successful leader. Vijay Eswaran did and as a result, he now gives motivational speeches and writes books on how to be successful. One book he wrote, “In the Sphere of Silence,” explains how to sit in silence to gain insight and direction. Another book Eswaran wrote is “Two Minutes from the Abyss,” which creates a sense of urgency in one’s life.
Eswaran puts these principles into action. He shares his knowledge through training and networking events. This has allowed him to give 10 percent of the profits back to those in need, which has made him a generous philanthropist.
