Soave Enterprises Employees Show What it Takes to Be a Leader

Anthony Soave is a dynamic leader, committed to the success and growth of his family of business, Soave Enterprises.  As a leader, he portrays the unique characteristics necessary to lead his employees and envision the next progressive steps for the future of each Soave affiliate.  But Anthony Soave believes that being a leader means being a team player, and being able to create cohesion between a diverse range of people, ideas, processes, and goals.  Soave once stated, “Leadership positions have often been portrayed as lonely roles.  I think this is usually an oversimplified and limited view.  It can be very rewarding to lead, and the ability to guide others is regularly demonstrated in one way or another by each of Soave Enterprises’ employees.

 

Leadership is expressed in widely different roles and settings – through involvement in jobs, schools, community organizations, religious institutions, and even within families. Soave Enterprises’ continued success requires that each and every member of the company serves, at some point, as a guide for others.

 

Through the years, Soave Enterprises’ employees have demonstrated many examples of leadership to look to for inspiration.  Throughout every new acquisition, consolidation, management, sales, and process changes, the teams at each Soave affiliate pull together to raise the bar on their performance, no matter the situation.  Each person, from field workers to administration, sales to delivery, and planning to controlling, is responsible for the recognition and accolades received for a job well done.  When it comes to leading a team, sometimes leadership means knowing when to follow, too.

 

Naturally, leadership often requires solid management skills, as is illustrated within our Soave Automotive Group. The growth of Aristocrat Motors and Kansas City Mercedes-Benz has solidified their footings. Our Kansas City Mercedes stores consistently report strong sales, in both the local market and regionally, during very challenging times. In this area, successful leadership guides and motivates. Leaders are also often called upon to intensify their organization’s efforts to meet and overcome challenges.

 

We can view an example of this required dexterity and drive today at the Soave affiliate, MPS Group, where each member of this company is working hard to embrace the exciting opportunities associated with new clients and projects. This increase in business is requiring leadership at all levels within the organization. Here, leadership requires solid planning and plenty of energy.

 

In every instance, successful leadership ultimately requires trust – of those being led and of those doing the leading. Throughout Soave Enterprises, a distinct enthusiasm for the work and the success of the team is evident, even as reflected through diverse leadership styles. Is it lonely being a leader? Sometimes. But as Anthony Soave says, “When individuals trust their fellow employees to do the right thing for the customer, the company and each other, everyone wins . . . and that is hardly a lonely feeling.”
