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.
