There are many people skills that are needed as an entrepreneur. Here is one for you to think of. Enjoy.
The ability to inspire others to do their best.
Closely related to persuasion, inspiration is a step above it. When you persuade someone, all you are doing is convincing them to share your beliefs and ideals. Inspiration, however, means that you are persuading a group of people not just to align their beliefs with yours, but you’re also persuading them to take action based on these beliefs. Inspiration often has a domino effect, so if you can inspire the people you work with, they will in turn inspire others, which trickles down to everyone associated with your business.
Of course, developing these critical people skills, especially if they don’t come naturally to you, is no easy task. The first step, however, is recognizing that “people skills” encompass a whole slew of very specific skills that seek to master different emotions. One of my favorite books that really digs deep into people skills as they relate to business and life is the classic “How to Win Friends and Influence People” by Dale Carnegie. Good luck!
