Jeffry Schneider wanted to be a leader since his grammar school days. Jeffry was part of several different organizations as a child that stressed the importance of being a leader and a good man. Jeffry Schneider has also come from a family who always pushed him to be a leader. Jeffry Schneider is very thankful for the people in his childhood who took the time to help shape him into a leader.
There are many techniques a person needs to be a leader. However, some of these skills are more important than others.
The first primary skill a person needs to be a leader is communication. It is vital for leaders to communicate with everyone. Some people can only socialize with those that see things their way. However, a leader must be able to socialize with people who do not understand things their way. Not only does this show a characteristic of leadership, but this also shows a component of maturity. Communication is so essential today that many colleges and universities have made communication an actual major.
The next skill that is needed to be a leader is motivation. Some people are only motivated when things are going right for them. This is certainly not a leader. A leader must be motivated even when nothing is going right for him/her. Real leaders can find motivation in anything. This motivation can come from a song, a blue sky, a dark sky, a knock on the door, or any other way. A leader may have to invent motivation at times, but this is what makes him/her a true leader. Learning how to create motivation in the worst of times will allow a leader to teach other people how to do the same.
The third skill that is needed to be a leader is positivity. Leaders must be positive in any situation. This positivity begins with the personal life of the leader. Many times, leaders bring their private life to either the workplace or an organization. They may be mad about their marriage, something their child did, or a mistake they made. A real leader must leave his/her personal life at home before engaging in leadership.
Additionally, a leader must be positive even while adverse situations arise. Coworkers might not get along, sales might be down, the latest deal might have failed, in all of this, a leader must remain positive. A leader should be an example to the entire organization. If the leader is positive, there is a good chance that the team as a whole will also be positive.
Jeffry Schneider has been a business owner since he graduated from college. Jeffry has stated many times that his success is solely based on his leadership skills. In an interview, Jeffry Schneider took this further by declaring that college and experience do not equal leadership.

Jeffry Schneider believes Americans should change the way young people are brought up. Before encouraging college and having a successful career, Jeffry believes Americans must encourage young people to become leaders, and Jeffry believes this starts at home.
