Leadership: Just Between You and the Mirror
One of my first objectives in writing my book, The Source of Leadership: Eight Drivers of the High-Impact Leader, was to distill down the hundreds of lists contained in hundreds of books describing the traits and functions of a successful leader. And I came up with eleven traits and eight functions that seem to encapsulate the hundreds of each that had been articulated in those myriad books. From there, I described the eight drivers – personal energies – that drive the ability to embody those traits and perform those functions. So, you’d think I would be sick of all those lists of leadership qualities. But I am a sucker for anything that enhances leadership and sometimes things are articulated in a way that hits a note with me. This list is one of them.
