The five qualities of a great leader
Updated: Nov 17, 2022
Wellbeing - a great leader is a well being.
Character - a great leader is humble, hungry and people smart.
Clarity - a great leader can easily articulate, and communicates, lives out and celebrates, a clear vision, values, strategic plan and top priority right now.
Team - a great leader builds teams with vulnerability and robust discussions where people are bought in and hold one another accountable. Their team has collective goals that everyone owns.
Meetings - a great leader checks in daily with the people they lead, meets weekly or fortnightly to discuss tactics and takes their team offsite at least once a year to look at big picture.
There's one thing great leaders do exceptionally well: they deal well with difficult people.
Do you want to have difficult conversations more effectively?
Do you hate conflict and you lose sleep over the idea of having a massive conflict that blows up in everyone's faces? (Or maybe you've been through that nightmare before and you're still scarred to this day!)
