What is Great Leadership?


a) What does great leadership look like
b) What are the key capabilities of great leaders

I would greatly appreciate your thoughts on these questions and also any suggestions of where I can look for credible answers

  1. Qualities of great leaders

    There are three ways to answer this question:

    1. Read works by some of the most renowned thinkers in the field, like John Adair, Jim Collins, Ken Blanchard and Stephen Covey
    2. Google it – I used a slideshow at as the basis for a discussion on the subject on a recent leadership course

    3. Ask the people that you work with to define the characteristics and qualities that they themselves look for more in a leader. This will mean that instead of giving an answer from a book or from someone else’s research, they will be giving you what matters the most to them.

    I’d be happy to share a couple of exercises on this if you’d like – just message me your email address.

  2. What does Leadership look like?

    A fantastic well researched book to read is the Leadership Challenge by Kouzes and Posner add into this the concepts of transparency & stewardship as additional principles and I think you have it. Easy to say and harder to change and maintain the behaviours required.
