OK 7 more days until we find out whether we or out DS’s or DD’s get an EA. To help make the time go by how about joining in on a friendly debate of whether true leaders are born or made? And what makes a truly great leader? The following lists came from some different web sites on leaders…but what do YOU think? Is it- Ambition, drive and tenacity, self-confidence, psychological openness, realism and an insatiable appetite for learning? Or is it- Bearing, courage, decisiveness, dependability, endurance, enthusiasm, initiative, integrity, judgment, sense of justice, knowledge, loyalty, tact, unselfish? Or how about- • Quiet resolution • The hardihood to take risks. • The readiness to share in rewards with subordinates. • An equal readiness to take the blame when things go adversely. • The nerve to survive storm and disappointment and to face each new day with the score sheet wiped clean; neither dwelling on one’s successes, nor accepting discouragement from one’s failures. Could it be – Integrity, knowledge, courage, decisiveness, dependability, initiative, tact, justice enthusiasm, bearing, endurance, unselfishness, loyalty, judgment?
