8 ways to identify your future leaders

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers,Leadership Skills

The person who claims the spotlight or advances ideas most forcefully is probably not the individual you want to assume a leadership position tomorrow. He or she probably embodies these traits instead:
  1. A history of effective leadership.

  2. A constructive spirit of discontent, i.e., an “unscratchable itch.”

  3. The ability to come up with practical ideas, not just imaginative ones.

  4. A willingness to take responsibility for things that do not work out as planned.

  5. The ability to bring things to completion.

  6. The ability to bounce back from setbacks and show mental toughness.

  7. The respect of peers and subordinates.

  8. The rare ability to make people want to listen to them.
