Inlanta Mortgage’s Senior Vice President of Business Development, Chad Gomoll, was recently featured in a National Mortgage Professional Magazine article discussing the importance of leadership, the qualities of true leaders, and, the benefits of having a team of leaders within your organization.
Who qualifies as a leader within your company? Chad notes that,
“Leaders come from a variety of backgrounds and can lead at any age or stage in their career. Whether they are a young Millennial only a couple of years into their career or an industry veteran who has 30+ years under their belt, each person has their own unique perspective, knowledge, and experiences to bring to the table. As long as they have the technical aptitude—an understanding of all areas of the business and their craft—to help the team navigate difficult situations and leverage positive ones, leaders can hold any position in the company, not just positions of authority. Having leaders at every level is actually beneficial, as these people are usually the ones inspiring the rest of their team members to step up their game to achieve the common goals of the organization.”
When discussing the true innate qualities of a leader, Chad summarizes that leaders are the self-starters, the do-ers, and the decision makers. They often put others first and direct their efforts toward the good of the company and their peers.
“Leaders tend to have an innate desire to lead. They are self-starters who volunteer to spearhead the next group project, take on a new task or responsibility that doesn’t fall inside their usual scope of duties, and want to be more involved in the organization. They take initiative to get the job done and encourage others to follow their example. They also are quick-thinkers who recognize when decisions need to be made quickly and are unafraid of making executive decisions. But most importantly, they have the ability to help their team navigate through any situation that may arise.
Leaders are altruistic and have a servant’s heart. They put the needs of their colleagues first. They recognize that it’s not just about them, but the team and organization as a whole. They motivate others, enable them to do their jobs, and put in just as much effort as (if not more than) the rest of the team. When you show others that you are invested in their success and are willing to get your hands dirty right along with them, others will start to follow your example.”
