MORE IDEAS FROM THE ARTICLE

Exercising Integrity

Not every leader is benevolent. Many leaders have insight, initiative, influence, and impact but their lives and legacies are tainted by a lack of integrity.

A great leader must have a life integrated with the highest values so the impact of his/her leadership is positive.

Exerting Influence

An authentic leader draws people and compels them to act with his vision and values. He also gives off a positive vibe and is good at persuading others to his point of view.

Demonstrating Initiative

Authentic leaders lead by example and don’t ask others to do what they are unwilling to do themselves.

This kind of behavior instills confidence and courage and communicates the kind of dedication that earns trust.

Having Insight

Leaders need wisdom and discernment for the present. They need to be able to look at complex situations, gain clarity, and determine a course of action.

Leadership is all about developing a vision and following it to create a better future.
