Sarder said that great leaders are not necessarily born with the requisite skills to become a great leader, because those skills can be developed.
In studying what makes a successful leader, Sarder read many books, talked to his mentors and studied the great leaders. The result of his research was the development of the framework, which he calls VISTA, which stands for Visionary, Inspiring, Smart, Trustworthy and Able. In the video Russell Sarder (http://www.russellsarder.com) explains how these five qualities make a successful leader and how they are apparent in all the well-known leaders of our day and throughout history.
“All successful leaders have the same five qualities in common. They show up again and again and are prevalent in leaders like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Warren Buffet, Bill Clinton and Oprah Winfrey. While being naturally gifted with leadership qualities helps, it is possible to develop the skills necessary to influence people to act towards achieving a common goal,” Sarder said.
In addition to these five traits, one common habit that all of these leaders possess is that they are all lifelong learners. Sarder himself is a lifelong learner and a demonstrated leader. He has led NetCom Learning in achieving many significant accomplishments, such as being named a Microsoft Learning Solutions Partner of the Year and winning the Microsoft Marketing Excellence Award. Under his leadership the company was named to the Inc. 500/5000 list of fastest growing private companies in the country for 2011 and was recognized on the 2011 IT Training Companies Watch List by TrainingIndustry.com. NetCom Learning was also named to the EC-Council Circle of Excellence for the second straight year.
His leadership doesn’t just stop with his role at the helm of NetCom Learning. His personal pursuits have also earned him outstanding success. His leadership skills in promoting a learning movement through his book Learning: Steps to Becoming a Passionate Lifelong Learner have been rewarded with the book being selected by Newark Peace Education Summit, where the XIVth Dalai Lama received a copy. His accomplishments have also earned him recognition with a Top 10 Asian American Business Award.
Up next, Sarder will bring world class business leaders, like Jack Welch, Jim Collins, Michael Porter, and Guy Kawasaki, and many others to New York City to share their expertise. NetCom Learning and HSM will produce the World Innovation Forum, June 20 to 21, and the World Business Forum, October 2 and 3, bringing great business leaders to an audience of business professionals.
