It begins with the excellent question: "Why Should Anyone Be Led by You?"
Matthew sends this with these comments: "This is definitely worth the look. . . I keep getting hip to these great reads and mixed media samples of management nuggets that can be easily applied to a small group leadership seminar reading list. . . It sounds like you have a bunch of guys who have elements of leadership but need a bigger picture. Leaders never being born but made."
We’ve discovered that inspirational leaders also share four unexpected qualities:They selectively show their weaknesses. By exposing some vulnerability, they reveal their approachability and humanity.They rely heavily on intuition to gauge the appropriate timing and course of their actions. Their ability to collect and interpret soft data helps them know just when and how to act.They manage employees with something we call tough empathy. Inspirational leaders empathize passionately — and realistically — with people, and they care intensely about the work employees do.They reveal their differences. They capitalize on what’s unique about themselves. You may find yourself in a top position without these qualities, but few people will want to be led by you.
