10 Most Admired Qualities in Leadership Today

Elegant leader

In my experience, the type of leader who gets followed closest has some distinct characteristics. I think that’s more defined these days than ever before, possibly because we live in the days of information. The leader is known well. It’s hard for a leader to hide true character.

Here, in my opinion, are the most admired qualities in leadership these days:

Servanthood – A willingness to do for others before (and if they never) do for you.

Responsiveness – Accessibility in a timely manner.

Humility – Not thinking too much of oneself.

Honesty – Telling the truth. All the time. Or not telling at all.

Transparency – Being real. Everyday. In every way.

Tenacity – Standing strong through the storms of life.

Visionary – Able to see beyond today.

Trustworthiness – Yes is yes. No is no.

Innovation – Finding new ways to do things. Doing things better than they’ve been previously done.

Compassion – Thinking much of others.
