Don Dea's curator insight, December 15, 2014 12:13 AM

Let your life speak for you. Your effectiveness as a leader is tied to the image that others form about you, and your ability to project a leader’s presence is closely tied to who you are as a person and how you lead your life. Anyone can live to please others; the harder task is to live for yourself. Let your character speak for you. You can spend a lot of time crafting your leadership skills, but it will be your character—as seen through your words and actions—that tells the story of your leadership. Spend the time to learn who you are and what you value, and demonstrate that knowledge in the things you say and do. A true character makes a great leader. Let your virtue speak for you. The moral cement of leadership lies in virtue—right words and actions. They unite and preserve, while vices separate and destroy. For a virtuous leader, everything stems from that moral core. Be a person of virtue and you will be a great leader. Let your integrity speak for you. Stand by your principles. Refuse to accept less than the best from yourself. Ask of others only what you yourself are willing to give. Speak the truth even though it may create conflict. True integrity and great leadership mean doing the right thing, even when nobody else will see or know. - See more at: http://www.lollydaskal.com/leadership/let-your-leadership-speak-for-itself/#sthash.inBWU0iJ.dpuf

Does One-Size-Fits-All?

17 years later, I have found that, in order to be a good and effective leader, I must understand that my leadership style cannot be a one-size-fits-all.  In fact, it has to be a many-sizes-fits-most style.  I have to be able to lead the people who are on my team in a way that will motivate, inform, and inspire them most.
