Are Your Goals SMART? - By Edward Abel
- Unwavering Courage Based Upon Knowledge of Self, and of One's Occupation. No follower wishes to be dominated by a leader who lacks self-confidence and courage. No intelligent follower will be dominated by such a leader very long.
The man who cannot control himself can never control others.
Self-control sets a mighty example for one's followers, which the more
intelligent will emulate.
- A Keen Sense of Justice. Without a sense of fairness and justice, no leader can command and retain the respect of his followers.
- Definiteness of Decision. The man who wavers in his decisions, shows that he is not sure of himself. He cannot lead others successfully.
- Definiteness of Plans.
The successful leader must plan his work, and work his plan. A leader
who moves by guesswork, without practical, definite plans, is comparable
to a ship without a rudder. Sooner or later he will land on the rocks.
- The Habit of Doing More than Paid for.
One of the penalties of leadership is the necessity of willingness,
upon the part of the leader, to do more than he requires of his
- A Pleasing Personality. No slovenly, careless person can become a successful leader. Leadership calls for respect. Followers will not respect a leader who does not grade high on all of the factors of a Pleasing Personality.
- Sympathy and Understanding. The successful leader must be in sympathy with his followers. Moreover, he must understand them and their problems.
- Mastery of Detail. Successful leadership calls for mastery of details of the leader's position.
- Willingness to Assume Full Responsibility. The successful leader must be willing to assume responsibility for the mistakes and the shortcomings of his follower. If he tries to shift this responsibility, he will not remain the leader. If one of his followers makes a mistake, and shows himself incompetent, the leader must consider that is he who failed.
- Cooperation. The successful leader must understand, and apply the principle of cooperative effort and be able to induce his followers to do the same. Leadership calls for POWER, and power calls for COOPERATION.

Ed Abel has invested more than three decades learning how to build a successful, thriving business. At age 24 with a $5,000 loan and the energy and passion of a young entrepreneur, Ed was ready to take on the world. And he did, only to emerge seven years later at the top of a $36 million organization with 585 employees. Inspired by the challenges that led him to success, Ed went on to build other multi-million dollar businesses, yet he missed the passion he experienced "in the trenches" of his formative years.
Determined to find a way to educate and advise others in the construction and sustainability of a vital business, he founded ABEL Business Institute. Over the course of this process, he developed The SkillPreneur Business System, a systematic approach to the construction, maintenance, and growth of a business's--an approach that has become the philosophy and methodology of ABEL Business Institute.
Ed is an adjunct professor of entrepreneurial studies at New York University (NYU) as well as the Director of the business division at the world class Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC). At iPEC, Ed directs the business division that is responsible for supporting the graduate coaches in their business development process.
