Sustainable Excellence Xtras #61 - What Character Says About Your Leadership Style With Sal F. Marino
What are the necessary character qualities needed to be an effective leader?
According to the Center for Creative Leadership, those characteristics are: integrity, delegation, communication, self-awareness, gratitude, learning agility, influence, empathy, courage, and respect.
But how does one go about developing those traits or maybe a better question is, Can those qualities even be developed or are they something certain people are born with?
Again the Center for Creative Leadership outlines three core beliefs that are necessary to develop the makings of a good leader: 1. Good leaders are made not born - leadership is a skill that can be developed. 2. Collaboration builds strong leaders - leadership is a social process that comes from interacting with groups of people. 3. Good leadership never stops - it's a journey, not a destination.
Watch the video and compare what the Center for Creative Leadership believes valuable leadership should look like versus what Sal F. Marino, chairman emeritus of Penton Publishing, considers the assets he expects in a leader.
Also, please leave me a comment about your thoughts on the two styles of leadership mentioned here. Are they the same, similar, or opposite of each other?
