Traits for Today’s Leaders

I was inspired to write this post after I watched the video below.  I must have watched this video about 5 times before it sank in.  To lead an organization,  committee,  non-profit or even a country, it takes a VERY special person.  For too long, it has been easy to lead.  I could write a book on that statement based on personal experience.  Today, if you want to survive and thrive, leaders need to have strong skills to create a vision, generate passion, and flawlessly execute that vision.  Below are just a few of the traits that we need in our leaders:

  1. Vision
  2. Desire
  3. Belief
  4. Action
  5. Assembling the right team
  6. Passion
  7. Planning
  8. Risk taking

What are your thoughts?
