Traits Of A Leader
Are leaders born or are they made?
A bit of both, I suspect.
Leaders, even those born to lead, improve over time if they learn from their mistakes.
Here are three tips I pass onto young lieutenants:
- Be first on the battlefield and last to leave.
- Be quick to take the blame and slow to take the credit.
- Be early to applaud and late to criticise.
If they get these three right, they’ll do alright!
