Being a leader comes with a lot of responsibility not only for the work that needs to get done but also for the people that are doing the work. Being a good and authentic leader can be very hard for some people and in some cases can be nearly impossible. There are also some people that just have that quality about them that they can be a good leader with not help. There are specific traits or aspects about a person that make them an authentic leader that most people may not realize is important.

Key Takeaways:

  • Leaders need wisdom and discernment for the present. They need to be able to look at complex situations, gain clarity, and determine a course of action.
  • Leaders go first. They don’t sit on the sidelines. They don’t ask others to do what they are unwilling to do themselves. Instead, they lead by example.
  • Real leaders are contagious. People “catch” what they have. People are drawn to their vision and their values.
