Here, I am going to discuss 8 Traits of Most Successful Entrepreneurs of the world, which, if you can imbibe, you can be a successful business person too.
- Successful People Speak, Yes! But They Listen Much More Than That
Yes, this is surely going to surprise you, because there is a general opinion about successful people, that they do what their own mind says, and do not care about other’s opinions and advices. This is not at all true. If you have any research on Steve Jobs, you would know that a large part of his success is credited to a strong team of advisors and talented fleet of employees. These people would put in sane words into his mind to help him make the correct decisions. No matter he was a difficult boss to work for and he had problems letting go of control, he never was wary of listening to people who he knew can contribute to the success of business. Jobs’ relationship with Apple’s Chief Design Officer, Jony Ive was one of immense trust when it came to product design. Richard Branson also, very proudly listed “Listening” as one of his most important leadership principles. In his words, “Listening enables us to learn from each other, from the marketplace, and from the mistake that must be made in order to get anywhere that is original and disruptive.”
