How Strong Leaders Take — And Show — Responsibility

The habits of highly responsible people

If you want to be a good leader, you need to be a responsible leader, and the most responsible leaders tend to:

  • Be punctual, organized, and detail-oriented.
  • Persevere in the face of challenges and notify you quickly of any unexpected changes or circumstances.
  • Practice self-discipline and consistency in behavior such as being in control of their emotions, particularly during stressful times.
  • Aim to be proactive instead of reactive.
  • Be dependable and known as the go-to person.
  • Exhibit higher levels of maturity and productivity.

People who lack personal responsibility tend to:

  • Cancel plans or no-show at the last minute.
  • Procrastinate, repeatedly ask for extensions, or fail to complete their agreed-to tasks.
  • Make excuses for their behavior and potentially the behavior of others.
  • Become overwhelmed and distracted easily and lack time management skills.

With some intentionality, irresponsible behaviors can become a thing of the past.
