We recently launched our second Gr8 Leaders Program with a group of incredible women who are committed to developing their leadership skills and challenging themselves to learn, grow, network, and achieve at a higher level. This group of Gr8 Women Leaders are already amazing leaders, but they recognize that they can grow and become even better. They have a strong desire to learn, and they are willing to invest their valuable time, energy, and money to gain an edge and become the best version of themselves.
During our kick-off session, we had a thought-provoking discussion about what makes a leader great. Here’s a list of qualities the SOS Gr8 Women came up with:
- Committed to leading by example
- Positive attitude
- Strong communication skills
- Active listener
- Lives with Integrity
- Accountable to self and others
- Seeks wisdom
- Shows gratitude, says thank you often
- Facilitates learning
- Develops other leaders
- Committed to learning and becoming a subject matter expert
- Can be open and respectful when opinions differ
- Validates others
- Keeps commitments
- Doesn’t fear making decisions
This is a comprehensive list from a group of truly great leaders. What else would you add to this list? Share your ideas in the comments below. I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
