7 Leadership Qualities You May Not Know You Have

7 Leadership Qualities You May Not Know You Have | Management | Scoop.it

What does it take to be a great leader?

 

Once upon a time, birth order and socioeconomic status were considered powerful determinants in who would successfully climb the ladder.

 

Lately, though, the focus has shifted to personal qualities.

Guiding vision, passion, and integrity are well known leadership traits. But there are lesser known leadership traits, as well--in fact, some historically have been perceived as weaknesses.

 

These hidden traits can be developed and nurtured to help further your career and your role as a leader, at work, in your community, or in life in general.

 

See if you just might have some or all of these personal qualities that lend well to leadership:

These are things you don't need to learn in books or B-schools. Build on these personal traits to become a more effective leader.

My favorite on this list is modesty, which I think is a seriously undervalued skill/talent in the workforce.  A good leader is one that makes those they work with look good (without taking all the credit for themselves).

Some of the best leaders I've met are those that are at the community level....no formal education or training and called informal leaders.   But they are knowledgeable about community issues, are passionate, have loads of integrity and are very humble!  Good share Dyana! I couldn't agree with you more.

Top 7 Traits of Star Employees

Top 7 Traits of Star Employees | Management | Scoop.it

If you're on the hunt for a new position that will let you shine, practice demonstrating these top seven traits that CEOs look for in star employees.

 

Your resume can get you the interview. But these traits can get you hired:

1. Happiness

No one wants to work with an unhappy person. Negativity, unnecessary drama, and melancholy attitudes can bring the entire company down, so although your own personal happiness may not seem important when applying for a job, it most certainly is. Happiness also reflects your ability to tackle challenges without becoming discouraged. If you show the hiring CEO that you're a positive, mentally healthy person, your chances of becoming the company's next star employee will vastly improve.

A resume will get them in the door. But what about their personality? Here's what you need to look for in a new hire.

These traits are somewhat similar to General Electric's 4E and 1P i.e. Energy, Energize, Edge, Execute and Passion.
