  7. 7. LIVE AUTHENTICALLY.<br />Being true to yourself. Internal harmony, clarity of purpose, trust in your core beliefs; integration of mind, body and spirit. <br />Authenticity is the single most important quality of leadership. <br />Leaders know, accept and <br />respect themselves<br />
  8. 8. BUILD RELATIONSHIPS. <br />Connecting genuinely with those around you. A willingness to bond with others, profoundly and <br />productively, without regard for status. <br />Leaders engage, <br />empower and trust.<br />

  11. 11. ACT COURAGEOUSLY. <br />The willingness to stand alone and speak up, to challenge the status quo, to follow your heart’s convictions. The determination to act honorably and faithfully, even in the face of fear and loss. <br />Leaders dare.<br />
  12. 12. LEARN CONSTANTLY.<br />Life-long openness to continue learning no matter how highly placed you are. The art of listening and the ability to learn from role models, bad as well as good. <br />Leaders seek knowledge.<br />
  13. 13. ADVOCATE FIERCELY.<br />Passionate, personal <br />Devotion to something that matters deeply. An unswerving commitment that drives your behavior. Refusing to be dissuaded or distracted from what you believe is necessary. <br />Leaders champion <br />what is right.<br />
  14. 14. CELEBRATE.<br />The age-old practice of gathering to mark important times. A chance to create rituals, enjoy traditions and build a history. Setting aside time for reflection and gratitude; for sorrow and, especially, joy. <br />Leaders rejoice.<br />
