When you ask people to think of what makes a great leader, they tend to choose words like boldness, power, and fearlessness. But when you ask them to name traits of the leaders they would like to emulate or follow; you get a different list. In fact, from my research, bold, powerful, and fearless don’t break anywhere near the top of the list. So, you have to ask yourself, are you adopting the traits you think will make you a great leader, or do you want to cultivate the qualities of the leader people want to follow?

Based on years of research across many demographics, I’ve compiled a list of qualities professionals look for in leaders. My message is that because you already possess the traits to be a great leader, you can unleash the power to do great things. This past few years have presented the world with many challenges that I believe we can overcome with strong, genuine leadership. Revolutions and significant changes always start with one individual. We all have a role to play, and becoming a genuine leader is where we begin.
