||This is, arguably, the most important trait of a great leader. Integrity is highly scrutinized today. Make certain honesty is a key component of your leadership profile. Without integrity, there is no trust and without trust, your leaders are unable to lead. Why? Because no one will follow.
||Great leaders are seen as experts in their fields and without a strong sense of business acumen as well as subject matter expertise, your leaders will not be able to lead. Why? Because no one will follow!
||Leaders who are able to see the future and articulate it to others can create it while helping others to participate in that creation. You know the saying, “Where there is no vision, the people will perish.” And, if there is no vision, there is no leader. Why? Because no one will follow!
||Having good judgment is not the same as being judgmental and most people recognize this. Leaders must be able to stop, reflect, assess and make decisions that serve the highest good of all. No personal agendas. No favoritism. Big Picture thinking. If they are unable to make good decisions, they are unable to instill trust. If they are unable to instill trust, they are unable to lead. Why? You already know the answer!
