  • 3. “A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.” —Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe

  • 5. 12 Traits of a Great Leader
  • 6. Good Communication Skills Many leaders spend hours crafting the words when they want to communicate – especially when they have an important or sensitive message they have to deliver. While this is important they sometimes underestimate the vital visual and vocal channels of communication.   12 Traits of a Great Leader
  • 7. Willingness to listen A good listener hears not only facts but also feelings. Paraphrasing or restating the person's message in shorter terms is a useful technique. It helps to clarify the message, and it shows the speaker that you have heard what they have said.  12 Traits of a Great Leader
  • 8. Trustworthiness Trustworthiness is the most noble and powerful of all the attributes of leadership. Leaders become trustworthy by building a track record of honesty, fairness, and integrity. Trust is the currency you will need when the time comes for you to make unreasonable performance demands on your teams. And when you’re in that tight spot, it’s quite possible that the level of willingness your employees have to meet those demands could make or break your team or organization. 12 Traits of a Great Leader
  • 9. Little girl and her father were crossing a bridge. The father was kind of scared so he asked his little daughter, 'Sweetheart, please hold my hand so that you don't fall into the river.' The little girl said, 'No, Dad. You hold my hand.' 'What's the difference?' Asked the puzzled father. 'There's a big difference,' replied the little girl. 'If I hold your hand and something happens to me, chances are that I may let your hand go. But if you hold my hand, I know for sure that no matter what happens, you will never let my hand go.'

  • 11. 12 Traits of a Great Leader Good Attitude This can be as little as offering a cup of coffee to someone who is feeling under the pump. Or giving a much- needed day off to someone who has gone above and beyond the call of duty. It will ensure others know that you care and that they are important to you.
  • 12. 12 Traits of a Great Leader Ability to Motivate Within each person is the often-untapped potential for energy and enthusiasm that produces the high job performance critical to a successful project. Effective leaders are able to release individuals’ potential energy and build teams that are motivated and ready to take on the task at hand.
  • 13. 12 Traits of a Great Leader Integrity Leading with integrity is one of the great challenges of leadership. We often hear those phrases like “walk the talk” and “lead by example.” Unfortunately, you can’t just lead by cliché.
  • 14. 12 Traits of a Great Leader Courage How do people feel about your leadership skill set?  How can you improve?  These are important questions that a leader needs to constantly ask the chapter. View feedback as a gift to improve. A leader is a risk taker and an innovator. New ideas may come from you from others in the organization, or from the community. A leader should recognize good ideas, actively support them, and encourage action. One may call them early adapters of innovation.
  • 15. 12 Traits of a Great Leader Ability to Stay Organized Organized leaders with a task-list will be able to see exactly what they need to do and when they need to do it. This allows them to prioritize their time more effectively because all their work is lined out.

  • 17. 12 Traits of a Great Leader Leadership that Sticks (Positive Reinforcement) One of the best ways to motivate a team and produce phenomenal results in the workplace is by using positive reinforcement. When positive reinforcement is used, you focus less on what people are doing wrong and more on what they’re doing right. By rewarding and praising your team every time they do a good job, you’ll be able to condition them into doing well all the time. 
  • 18. 12 Traits of a Great Leader Accountability It means that you accept responsibility for the outcomes expected of you—both good and bad. You don’t blame others. And you don’t blame the external environment. There are always things you could have done—or still can do—to change the outcome.
