The Coates Perspective

Proactive vs. Reactive Leadership

The Coates Perspective for May 7, 2013
“Steering Organizations To New Horizons.”
 
The Proactive Leader

One of the most important attributes a leader can possess is to be proactive. Instead of the business coming to him or her, the proactive leader takes the initiative and goes and gets it. Instead waiting for a problem to fix itself, the proactive leader has the ability to cut to the chase and address the problem before it evolves into an even greater challenge. The proactive leader is on the cutting edge of self-leadership: he or she makes an intentional effort to lead one’s own self.

Here is the bottom line: what is it that makes a person a proactive leader? It is someone who consistently makes proactive decisions instead of reactive ones. Proactive leaders lead, push, and prod others not to just settle for success but to keep on reaching to an even greater improvement.

Mark Sanborn illustrates this point well when he writes,
 
“The greatest danger a team faces isn't that it won't become successful, but that it will, and then cease to improve.”
 
Want to learn more about how to be a proactive leader? If you need help working through the process consider using the resources at Coates and Associates, Inc. We would consider it an honor to visit with you about developing a process forward.

The high premium rate and gathering terms of money improve turn out it Associate in Nursing extravagant and dangerous finance utterly totally different, generally picked if all else fails. it's always imperative to appear at the fine print on any credit. Typically notably valid for day progresses from loan bosses. Regularly, leasers constrain the receiver to pay off the whole modification of the charge account credit before they are going to start to pay off the high premium money improves.
