“What Kind of Leader Do You Want to Be?” – Read Lee’s article, published by the American Management Association, on a true leader’s characteristics

Whether evaluating your personal leadership qualities or deciding what type of leader you want to serve in your work (or cast your vote for public office in a few weeks), Lee’s article, published by the American Management Association, provides a great summary of a true leader’s characteristics. Read it here.

One of the best statements in the article is – “If you don’t know yourself and have a peace about who you are, your fears and insecurities will take you out. Rather than pursuing your passion and purpose using your unique talents, style, and convictions, you will constantly be comparing yourself to others and trying to guide your life by someone else’s ways and standards. Alternatively, when you know and accept yourself, you can be authentic, leading from your own true north. Objectively knowing your strengths gives you confidence, while awareness of your weaknesses gives you humility.”

After you’ve read the article, please share your thoughts and comments…
