7 Traits Of Inspiring Leadership That Uplifts Rather Than Destroys

7 Traits Of Inspiring Leadership That Uplifts Rather Than Destroys | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
These 7 key traits demonstrate true leadership that uplifts rather than destroys.
donhornsby's insight:
The words that leaders (and all of us) choose to share are extremely revealing about their inner mindset and the way in which they operate in the world, and how much good they believe exists in that world. As we know, words can be used as weapons or they can be tools for growth. Take the time today to read an inspiring speech of a great leader such as Martin Luther King, Abraham Lincoln or Eleanor Roosevelt, and you’ll find words that generate so much positive emotion, uplifting us with a compelling vision of a better, more loving, free world that we want to create.

Think of the most engaging people you know. My guess is they're charming, interesting, and make you feel special.

We all want to be perceived that way, don't we? Here are several character traits you should work on if you want to be magnetic and likeable.

Curiousity


By nature children are curious, but we lose much of our inquisitiveness as we age. Yet it's such a vital trait, especially in business. Curiousity drives you to continuously learn about your industry, understand your customers, and create innovative products.

The Power of a Positive Attitude

The Power of a Positive Attitude | Surviving Leadership Chaos | Scoop.it
Be positive . . . A positive attitude can improve your health, enhance your relationships, increase your chances of success, and add years to your life.
donhornsby's insight:
(From the article): A positive attitude can boost your energy, heighten your inner strength, inspire others, and garner the fortitude to meet difficult challenges. According to research from the Mayo Clinic, positive thinking can increase your life span, decrease depression, reduce levels of distress, provide greater resistance to the common cold, offer better psychological and physical well-being, reduce the risk of death from cardiovascular disease, and enable you to cope better during hardships and times of stress.
