Fourteen is a lot of points to remember!

These are my favorite two:

4.  Represents Their Authentic Self

Leaders are not always their authentic selves; this is why many are challenged to develop and live their personal brand as a leader.   Being authentic is about consistently representing who you are and what you stand for — in everything you do and how you do it.   Leaders must be courageous enough to let others inside their domain, where they can help elevate the talent around them and accelerate the implementation of the business strategy.   When leaders can be themselves, others feel free to do the same without the pretense of asking permission.

5.  Good Listeners

The best leaders listen to their employees because they want to learn about them and from them.  Employees that genuinely believe that their opinions and points of view matter to their leaders are the ones that fully engage.   Leaders that roll-up their sleeves, get their hands dirty and collaborate are the ones that value the importance of listening and translate this genuine effort into an ROI opportunity – for both the relationship and the business.
