Leadership is key to all successful business ventures; in fact, without proper leadership your business will surely fail. Psychology Today instructs that “Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality”. Investing time and effort into your employees with help to garner commitment to you as a leader and the vision overall.

Be charismatic; your charm and ability to engage others can brighten any room. Conversely, there are persons that will seek and destroy success; in addition, they can undermine ones leadership.
