It’s been said there are three rules for developing good leaders, but unfortunately no one knows what they are!
The misconceptions of what makes a great leader have caused many organizations to choose leaders based on stage performance, confidence, passion for personal achievement and other personality characteristics – and often those choices have failed spectacularly.
In reality, personality is not an indicator of great leaders, and true leadership capability has nothing to do with having charisma or other exotic personality traits. Leadership is learned a process of initiating and managing change, which makes defining and developing effective leadership matching the need of your organization so critical to success.
