5 ENDURING LEADERSHIP QUALITIES FROM SANTA CLAUS
Ho ho ho. The holiday season is in full swing, and jolly ol’ Saint Nick is tirelessly plugging away getting toys ready for all the good boys and girls on his list (and collecting all those coal chunks for those not-so-good boys and girls).
What does it take to be known far and wide as the bringer of happiness and joy to children worldwide? How about some top-notch leadership skills. Lets check out what it takes to really get down to business like Santa Clause
Spots Top Talent From Within
We all know Rudolph saved the day on that one foggy Christmas Eve. But who spotted his unusual skill set and made sure he was working on his sled-leading skills all year round? Santa, that’s who. Santa knows that it takes a wide variety of talent and skills to achieve ambitious goals, that’s why he’s not scared of bringing on diverse reindeer to broaden out the team.
Keeps a Positive Attitude
He’s not called Jolly Ol’ Saint Nick for nothing. Santa Claus has the kind of personality and attitude that keeps the team going strong, even in the hardest of times. You can bet those last few days before Christmas mean crunch time around the workshop, but the elves get it down thanks to Santa Claus’ positive, can-do attitudie.
Creates a Top-Notch Culture
Let’s face it, the North Pole isn’t exactly HQ catnip. It’s not just cold, it’s frozen all over. Yet somehow Santa manages to recruit of team of elves and other helpers that help him get the job down flawlessly. How does he pull it off?
Focuses on the Workshop’s Competitive Advantages
After centuries of building a word-class workshop that can build and deliver toys to children worldwide, you can bet Santa is an operations mastermind. He’s built the right team, the right production lines and has cornered the niche on toy-making for god boys and girls. You don’t see him trying to get into fast food, branded paraphanelia, or the latest fad. He knows what the workshop is good at and he’s focused on keeping his eye on the ball.
