Eric Sheninger believes, in The Essence of Leadership, that the best leaders consistently do the following:
- Great leaders take professional growth seriously.
- They make the time to learn and get better on a daily basis.
- They make their learning visible to inspire others to follow suit.
- Leaders who love their work are always learning.
- Effective leaders empower others to take risks, remove the fear of failure, and grant autonomy to innovate.
- Great leaders appreciate that people who are empowered find greater value in their work.
- Empowerment leads to respect and trust.
- Trust creates powerful relationships where everyone is focused on attaining specified goals.
- Great leaders embrace a sense of flexibility and openness to change.
- The ability to adapt to an array of situations, challenges and pressures are pivotal to accomplish goals.
- Success in life is intimately intertwined with the ability to adapt in order to survive.
- As leaders adapt they evolve into better leaders.
- No leader can do everything by him or herself.
- A decision to delegate certain tasks and responsibilities is not a weakness.
- Delegation allows leaders to apply more focus on areas of greater importance.
- Effective delegation builds confidence in others.
- Open and ethical communication is crucial to sustainable engagement.
- Effective leaders develop strategies to authentically engage through multi-dimensional communication.
- Great leaders take responsibility for effective public relations and developing a positive brand presence.
- Meaningful engagement encourages two-way communications.
- Reflection: The act of giving serious thought or consideration …
- It is quite difficult to find a great leader who does not reflect daily on his or her work.
- Reflection in a digital world can take many forms and results in greater transparency.
- It is not how one chooses to reflect, but an emphasis to integrate this process consistently that defines a great leader.
The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things.He is the one that gets the people to do the greatest things.Ronald Reagan
