6 things all great social media leaders have in common (Slide deck)

If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.” – John Quincy Adams

I have been fascinated by the concept of leadership ever since I read The Story of My Experiments with Truth. Mahatma Gandhi’s autobiography is one of the best testimonies of what a human being can achieve if they decide to dedicate their lives to walking the talk.

When discussing Gandhi’s life with others, a recurring question arises: “How I can move people like he continues doing despite being dead for more than 60 years?”

The answer is simple. The size of your audience does not matter. Your willingness to help them is much more important. When you focus on that, you become a role model.

Are things different in social media? Not at all!

Here is a slide deck that explores what makes the real social media leaders awesome. And the good news is: You can be that kind of person too!

    Great social media leadership list Cendrine. I liked that you include transparency, but at the same time, people do not need to be shocked while they are being inspired. So I think when you are saying ‘Leaders are only sharing things they know will be acceptable’ I took it to mean diplomacy mixed with positivity. Which is great. I was shocked by the previous comment @M.Eisbrener. Leaders constantly tell people what their goals are – ask any president of the USA. Without disclosing goals, how can you expect people to get behind your ideas? Mr. Eisbrener clearly doesn’t know the basic rule of politeness in social media and treating people online as you would in person i.e with respect.

      Hello A.K.!

      Thank you for chiming in. 

      Yes, you understood what I meant: diplomacy mixed with positivity. 

      I think that Michael just wanted to be controversial. :-) I didn’t delete his comment because I like a conversation with different viewpoints.

    Standard, worthless leadership …?? Put your finger up to see which way the wind blows… 5/20.. not leadership in my view and 6/20 is the same thing. The so called golden rule is wrong. DO NOT treat people the way you want to be treated. Treat them 1… how they want to be treated [you’ll have to ask them first] and 2 treat them in a way that makes a difference for them… forget about you which is what the ‘golden rule’ has you do… always what you want is not leadership. NEVER let everyone know what your goals are until AFTER they have been accomplished… leaders, the ones I find worth my time get things done based on their word to themselves first. Leadership is too often defined by followers. We need a planet full of real leadership, not the usual 1%.
