#1:. Be a Listener
For one to be a good leader, Dangote says having good listening skills is a great value. One has to be ready to listen to people and the advice they offer.
He notes that success is not entirely about what you tell people to do, but also what you allow them to tell you and work as a team. “There is no way you can make it as a person, without a good team,” he adds.
Larry King said: “I remind myself every morning: Nothing I say this day will teach me anything. So if I’m going to learn, I must do it by listening.”
#2:. Be consistent
Every successful man will tell you that they had to do something over and over again until they succeeded. Dangote notes that every business has its own challenges. These hiccups he says should not deter one from pursuing their goals.
“There must be challenges. In fact, what I keep saying is that life without challenges is very boring.” He advises entrepreneurs to find ways to work around the challenges.
“What business doesn’t like is for you to try something and then once you have one or two problems, you change and move to another business. That does not work in business at all.”
