What Leadership Qualities Do You Need to Run a Business?



While everyone has their own unique leadership style, successful business owners share many of the same traits. At Dale Carnegie Training, we’ve been teaching those traits for years. And, we also have a great opportunity for aspiring entrepreneurs to become franchisees. Perhaps they have gone through our program, or maybe they are hearing about us for the first time and would like to learn more about what it takes to run a successful business.

Owning a Dale Carnegie Training franchise comes with many benefits. Those who have the following leadership qualities should strongly consider joining our growing list of franchisees.



Everyone has something, or a handful of things, that makes them tick. But there are things that motivate some people, while discouraging others. Self-awareness means paying attention to emotions and how motivation works. But it goes far beyond that.

Self-aware people tend to know what’s best for them. They try to avoid certain business decisions that they know may expose their weaknesses in the wrong way. They also know how they relate to the surrounding world. Those who understand themselves and their particular leadership style are already well on their way to making people feel inspired and confident. And that’s what Dale Carnegie Training franchisees do every week.



While it often goes hand-in-hand with self-awareness, decisiveness makes or breaks good leaders. Our brains are somehow wired to avoid uncertainty at all costs, as multiple studies indicate. Great leaders have learned to embrace this uncertainty and make difficult decisions using the resources available to them.

In the day-to-day process of running a business, owners have to make multiple decisions, many of which can prove difficult. However, some have already decided that they want to expand their business holdings. For those who want to take a leadership role in a franchise, Dale Carnegie Training might be the right choice.


Effective Communication

Even after making a decision, no leader can accomplish his or her goals without communicating them effectively. That’s why effective communication skills are so important in the proper running of a franchise. Having these skills can impact not only the overall success of a business, but also employee morale.

Each of our franchisees has the opportunity to engage both employees and customers through a brand that has existed for more than 100 years. Proper communication will ensure each of these stakeholder groups understands the necessary goals and objectives.
