In 2000, the publication Leadership, asked readers to use the letters in L-E-A-D-E-R-S-H-I-P to define the essence of a good leader. Here is part one submitted by Brent W. Stephens of Texas:
Logic: Deal with every issue logically and rationally.
Evaluate: Look at all possible alternatives before making a decision.
Attitude: Maintain a positive attitude at all times.
Dynamic: Be bold and courageous because people are looking at you to lead.
Expressive: Create a visible picture when you communicate.
Results-oriented: People are more likely to follow you if they see consistent results.
Style: Be an individual; don't mimic another.
Health-conscious: A healthy, active body leads to a healthy, active mind.
Inspire: When the going gets tough, inspire confidence.
Persistent: Show your willingness to get up and keep at it until you succeed.
