How do you define leadership?
Do you adhere to the belief that leaders are born leaders? Sorry, I don’t believe in that, but so many do.
I find leadership a mix of listening and talking. The emphasis is on listening, though. Most leaders say that listening is 90% of being a great leader. The other 10% made up of talking is perfect if you used the other 90% effectively.
Now I can’t document this fact in writing because I haven’t seen it in an article anywhere. How I know these numbers is from listening to leaders of Countries and Corporations give talks to other industry professionals.
When it comes to leader, though I will admit my admiration goes a long way for this President of the United States.
John F. Kennedy was a leader. A world leader with great listening skills. When he spoke, he spoke from his heart after listening to the voices of the peoples of the world.
Here is a quote on leadership that shows he knew what he was talking about.
What are you feelings about this quote and leadership? What qualities make a great leader?
