Entrepreneurs With These 6 Mindsets Can Attract Brilliant Talents

Entrepreneurs With These 6 Mindsets Can Attract Brilliant Talents

A leader is as strong and formidable as the team they have around them. Without the right team, an entrepreneur’s vision or ideas can come to naught. This is why it is important for an entrepreneur setting out on the journey of becoming a leader or a pacesetter in an industry needs to have the right personnel or workforce to help attain their objectives.

It is not just about hiring or scouting for talent, though. Sometimes what sets an entrepreneur apart is the mindset and proficiency to get things done. The mindset and the character an entrepreneur showcases to the world could be enough to attract top talent that will help them actualize their ideas.

It is incredibly important for entrepreneurs to build their character on these mindsets to attract brilliant talents.

1. Having an enormous amount of self-belief

Brilliant talents are attracted to entrepreneurs who have ample self-belief. They want to know that the person who is in charge can make something out of nothing when push comes to shove. The “I can do” mindset spells possibility and triggers action.

Such entrepreneurs are not reluctant to go into the field with their employees and act to define a change. Such energy when borne out of self-belief instills confidence and assurance to top talents.

2. The willingness to try new things

There is a zeal that stems out of doing something that has never been done before. A mindset that is attractive to any new set of ideas and thinking outside of the box. Top talents want to be part of something new, creative and innovative.

It is more about leaving a legacy and being challenged to be a part of something different. When you have an innovative thinker in charge it makes you feel confident and part of something huge.

3. The approachable personality

Many exceptional entrepreneurs are humble. They do not make themselves imposing personalities or have a superiority complex. Being humble and modest about whom they are sort of attracts the right kind of personalities and talents who will not feel subjugated by working for them.

Top talents can be assured that they won’t be in an environment that is stifling and stiff. They can be expressive and actually connect with their leader.

4. Readiness to listen

Entrepreneurs who are successful are not dogmatic. They are willing to listen and get your perspective. They are discerning and understanding. Being ready to listen has a way of making others want to reach out to you and offer an opinion.

Such a quality is both motivational and inspiring to top talents who will love to speak out and demonstrate their brilliance every now and then.

5. An informed demeanor

As many will attest to, the rich will always love to hang around with the rich, just as the intelligent will always love hang around the intelligent. Attracting top talent will require an entrepreneur to be informed, not only about his industry but also about what he or she expects from people they will be working with.

It is important for an entrepreneur to never stop learning, as they should be knowledgeable and informed about what they are getting into. Such qualities will make top talents assured that they are in safe hands and that their leader knows what direction he is going with his company.

6. Being committed

No one wants to be tied with an individual or an organization that is renowned for performing projects or objectives haphazardly. Top talents want to be tied with excellence and a commitment. Top talents do not want to be sub-par or mediocre. They want to feel accomplished and complete, knowing that they have given their all and best to a project.

This is required from a leader who is willing to go the whole nine yards and stop at nothing to make a vision become a reality. When an entrepreneur is renowned for being dedicated and committed to what he or she does, then certainly they will attract the brilliant talents that will help them actualize their business goals.

How to Find a Suitable Professional Mentor

How to Find a Suitable Professional Mentor

I went through a personal experience that acted as a catalyst for an epiphany. When I got fired from a job, I learned something important about myself and where I was headed with my freelance career. I realized that the most important aspect of that one rather small job was the influence of the company owner. I realized that I wasn’t hurt that the company and I weren’t a perfect match; I was devastated by the stark fact that I needed a mentor and I had almost found one but lost her.

Suddenly, I felt like J.D., the main character in “Scrubs,” chasing Dr. Cox and trying to rip insight and wisdom from someone I respect. The realization that a recognized thought-leader and experienced entrepreneur severed ties with me felt crushing. But, I picked myself back up and thought about five ways to acquire a mentor without having the awkwardness of outright asking.

1. Remember, a professional mentorship must be mutual.

A professional mentor must agree to engage in a mutual relationship because, as the comedy T.V. series showed us, one simply cannot force someone to tutor us. We have to prove that we are worth the time investment through persistence and dedication to the craft.

2. You have to have common interests with your mentor.

Even if a professional mentor appears at your job or school, realize that unless you and this person have common interests, you won’t find the relationship successful. I’ve been in situations where someone I respected had vastly different ideas about what was important in life or what one should spend his or her free time doing. If these things don’t line up, you may find the relationship won’t be as fruitful, even when the mentor knows a great deal about one industry.

3. Thought-leaders will respect your passion.

One of the ways you can prove yourself worthy to a professional mentor is through your passion and your dedication. No one wants to spend time grooming and teaching another who will not take advice or put the effort in to improve. When following thought-leaders on Twitter and trying to engage with higher-ups in a work setting, realize that your actions most often speak louder than your words.

4. Before worrying if he respects you, ask if you respect him.

On the other side of the coin, you should seriously reflect on those common interests and make sure you respect your professional mentor. Just because someone holds a title, degree or office does not mean that person is trustworthy or honest. Don’t be swayed by appearances and take the time to find a suitable professional mentor.

5. Failure is often the best way to learn

I honestly have made more mistakes than I can count. I know I’ve learned a great deal from poorly organized businesses and my own poor choices. The most important quality I’ve developed is an ability to swallow my pride and learn from my mistakes. If life knocks me down nine times, I get back up 10 times. One of the songs Megadeth wrote, “Of Mice and Men,” resonates in my mind when I pull myself up by my bootstraps and try again for a goal I’ve set: “So live your life and live it well. There’s not much left of me to tell. I just got back up each time I fell.” Hopefully, this brief post can act as a professional mentor to you in your quest to find not only a brave leader but also a trusted adviser.
