A few thoughts on leadership:
Above all leadership requires courage, integrity and trust.
Leaders have a clear purpose, learn from the past, constructively deal with today, see and plan for the future.
Leaders are consistent and persistent, always fair in their dealings of others placing principles before personalities.
Leaders review their behaviour, acknowledge and take responsibility for their shortcomings always striving to grow their character.
Leaders are focussed on helping others and will confront and solve the needs of their people.
Leaders think before they act (every action has a reaction).
Leaders understand that everything is connected, consider the big picture avoiding decisions in isolation.
Do you have, and are you developing, leaders of substance in your organisation?
