Thank you for this. I focus on leadership development for folks doing social and racial justice work, and I think this list of ‘soft skills’ maps almost perfectly to those that make for effective leaders in that space too. I appreciated your comment in the responses as well about how many of these skills are cultivated over time. That’s where we tend to trip up, I think: overburdening the few rockstars who show up already equipped with many of these skills rather than making space to cultivate the millions more who could get there with a little time and a lot of support.
Anyway thank you for naming this. It’s a great guide.
