10-19-20: Coaching Tip for Candidates Seeking Leadership Positions
Leadership is not really a position nor a title. It is action and example. While everyone finds their own approach to leadership, there are certain qualities that many great leaders share. These are portrayed in all aspects of one's personal and professional life.
Let's do an activity: Review the 5 traits listed below and cite examples of how you have personified these traits:
  1. Integrity
  2. Humility
  3. Express Care
  4. Consistency
  5. Influence
See what Howard Shore, author of "The Leader Launch Pad: Five Steps to Fuel Your Business & Lift your Profits" has to say about these traits: Person's character foundation.
Do you have what it takes? When you interview for leadership positions, weave in your stories that match the traits listed above.  
"The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails"
- John Maxwell
