Much has been written about the characteristics of great leaders. I have found 13 characteristics that hold true for the great leaders I have known. There are other ingredients to excellent leadership, but if you have all 13 of these characteristics, you are probably one of the elite leaders.

Great Leaders:

  1. Operate from a set of values
  2. Are Congruent and live their vision
  3. Are passionate and infect others with that passion
  4. Value Transparency
  5. Have high Emotional Intelligence
  6. Never stop learning
  7. Believe work is play
  8. Balance the needs of stakeholders and don’t worry about popularity
  9. Foster great followership
  10. Make large trust deposits
  11. Practice ubiquitous reinforcement
  12. Do better in a crisis
  13. Develop others
