This excellent article, suggests that business owners and managers should aim to become "followable" leaders, and it identifies six characteristics small business leaders should develop if they want to be eminently "followable".

Daniel Watson's curator insight, December 14, 2012 12:40 AM


Small businesses that are reluctant to embrace the internet and establish a strong online presence, face the very real possibility of being left far behind, by more aggressive competitors who fully embrace the power of internet especially in the areas of branding and marketing.


Companies such as Google, now offer easier pathways for small businesses to create their own online presence, and any business owner who is not at least exploring what is currently available to them in terms of assistance to get online, is doing their business no favours.


This good article, suggests that many companies are still wary about going online, partly because they have the mistaken notion that it is very expensive and difficult to build an online presence, and it then addresses some of the myths that surround the subject of online visibility.

Being accepted as a leader, especially if you are new to a leadership role or have been asked to lead a new group of people who do not know of you or your success in previous leadership roles, can be  difficult if you make some very common mistakes in how you approach the leadership role.


The real measure of success in any leadership role, is to have those you lead follow your direction without hesitation, and be willing to go that extra mile when you ask it of them.


This excellent article, suggests that the common mistakes made by leaders that lead to them not being accepted by team members can be avoided, and it outlines five of the most common mistakes and then advises how to avoid them.
