Courageous Leadership and Natural Behavior: Your Unique Style

For leaders today, courageous leadership is the key solution for increased performance, morale, and getting results. More specifically, the foundation of successful leadership is actually courageous accountability. The new infographic below from Lee Ellis is a practical tool to understand the lack of accountability, the obstacles, the 4C’s of making accountability a regular part of honorable leadership.

Also, consider the 4C’s as it relates to your natural DNA behavior. If you’re a Strategist Style Group, how can you uniquely use these steps on a daily basis? And how does it differ for a Community Builder or Reflective Thinker Style Group?

Thanks to Engage with Honor Reader, Harry, for Your Endorsement

Thank you Engage with Honor reader, Harry H, for your kind words –

“Lee Ellis does a splendid job of telling his story of being a Vietnam POW. The story illustrates powerful transferable concepts of leadership, accountability, and honor. In reading the book, as well as having listened to Lee teach these concepts, I’m amazed at how practical the concepts are for business organizations. As someone who has spent most of my career in leading programs, projects, and enterprise risk management, I’ve found Lee’s insights as inspiring and practical.”

On This Day in Leadership History for January 8, 2017

On this day in leadership history in 1559, England’s Queen Elizabeth I (Elizabeth Tudor) was crowned in Westminster Abbey.

In government, Elizabeth was more moderate than her father and half-siblings had been. After the pope declared her illegitimate in 1570 and released her subjects from obedience to her, several conspiracies threatened her life, all of which were defeated with the help of her ministers’ secret service. Elizabeth was cautious in foreign affairs, maneuvering between the major powers of France and Spain. By the mid-1580s, England could no longer avoid war with Spain. England’s defeat of the Spanish Armada in 1588 associated Elizabeth with one of the greatest military victories in English history.

Elizabeth is acknowledged as a charismatic performer and a dogged survivor in an era when government was ramshackle and limited, and when monarchs in neighboring countries faced internal problems that jeopardized their thrones. Such was the case with Elizabeth’s rival, Mary, Queen of Scots, whom she imprisoned in 1568 and had executed in 1587.

After the short reigns of Elizabeth’s half-siblings, her 44 years on the throne provided welcome stability for the kingdom and helped forge a sense of national identity.
