3 Leadership Tips Entrepreneurs Can Gain from Game of Thrones

leadership tips

One of the most exciting things about being an entrepreneur is that we crave knowledge, and we can actively seek out self-development opportunities in every area of our lives. Many of the most successful business owners in the world credit their success to reading books strategically to up their game. Believe it or not, we can learn from TV shows too. Read on to discover the three leadership tips we can all learn from the hit TV show, Game of Thrones.

1. Stay true to your word.

Always keep your word. If for any reason you cannot, call yourself out on it. Your employees need to know that they can trust you to lead them to greatness. And your customers need to know that they can trust you to always have their best interests at heart, as well as your investors.

2. Maintain control of your emotions.

A strong leader is one who has complete emotional control and doesn't panic or lash out under pressure. Emotional outbursts are not empowering to your team nor productive.

3. Know your strengths and weaknesses.

Knowing your strengths and weaknesses is humbling and makes for a far more productive workforce. Know when to take the reigns, and when to delegate projects to a team member who has strengths in the area of your weakness.
