This morning I read the Leadership First lesson on the top ten qualities of great leaders. I entirely agree that these are qualities I try to aspire to as a leader. He stresses the importance of continuous self-development for any leader. Leaders are students for life and we have a responsibility to lead and inspire our team by example; while developing the next generation of leaders. We must continually work to improve our emotional intelligence and know that a strong team culture is the foundation of accomplishing great things.
Consider the following 10 qualities into your leadership:
1. Honesty and Integrity
3. Inspire Others
4. Commitment and Passion
5. Good Communicator
6. Decision Making Capabilities
8. Delegation and Empowerment
9. Creativity and Innovation
And, I’d like to add a Sense of Humor!
