L-E-A-D-E-R-S-H-I-P Listening Skills o Building and consistently using high level communication abilities may be the most important skill great leaders possess. This includes everything from active to listening to body language to using empathy and intuition.

Ethical o When people think of ethics they usually think of wrong and right but when it comes to leadership it has a very different meaning. Ethics refers to leading by example, keeping your ideals and standards regardless of the situation, not to mention emotional strength and strength of character.

Attitude Positive o Nothing inspires and motivates people more than being lead by someone that exhibits and maintains a positive attitude. Positive about what’s going on in the present and positive about where they are going and how they are going to get there.

Develops Leaders o Developing other leaders is the true sign of an exemplary leader.

This comes from mastering a variety of behaviors and skill sets such as focusing on others strengths, instilling leadership skills in others and sharing not just information but authority and power.

Effective o Effectiveness is important at all levels of an organization but never more important than when you aren’t just responsible for your own but everyone’s on your team. This would include skills in delegation, providing clear direction, being decisive, and making timely decisions and executing.

Responsible o Great leaders have so many responsibilities they need to make this trait second nature.

This will include owning their decisions, being accountable, maintaining energy reserves to recover rapidly from problems, and admitting mistakes.

Strategic o Thinking and planning strategically is not only a necessity for great leaders but for everyone on the team. This includes but is not limited to using team work to create values, the mission and vision for the organization and detailed SWOT analysis.

Honest o Honesty is always important but never more so than when you are leading a team or teams of people. Honesty refers to a lot more than just telling the truth. When leading people it includes showing loyalty, trust, high ideals and discipline whenever its needed not just when its convenient.

Influencing o Influencing skills come into play on a daily basis.

This is not just impacting people but moving them in new and often uncharted directions. Managing relationships and experiences, helping others to motivate themselves, find meaning in their work and expanding their horizons.

Priority Driven o Defining the purpose and priorities for your organization is absolutely crucial not to mention communicating them with a sense of urgency, creating and maintaining momentum and providing systems to track and guarantee results. The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it. Theodore Roosevelt If the rate of change on the outside exceeds the rate of change on the inside, the end is near. Jack Welch
