ARTICLE OF THE MONTH: What Really Makes A Good Leader?

In this article, Travis Bradberry asks the question: What makes someone a leader anyway? Such a simple question, and yet it continues to vex some of the best thinkers in business. Hundreds of books have been written on leadership and yet  it's a rare thing to actually pause to define leadership.


Bradberry challenges the thinking of some of the best known leadership experts. What are your thoughts regarding Mr. Bradberry's article, is he on to something?  Look forward to talking about it at one of our future TLP modules.


Good to Great by Jim Collins
Book Review by a TLP Cohort #4 Member

This book is a captivating read! A study taken over five years began with twenty-eight corporations and had shown that eleven made the leap from Good to Great. From the study, I gained a direct perspective of the role of humility in leadership. The main ambition of great leaders is intense focus on the success of their companies, not on themselves.
This is a must read for a person in a leadership role.
