A Leader’s Leader

Here is a collection of skills and behaviors a first-class leader would have.  It is a list to work on as one develops a career.  This should not be looked at as overwhelming, but more of a target list to enhance personal performance, a career, and leadership ability.  Some are position-level sensitive — acquired with increasing levels of positions as work content becomes more complex.  For example, “Business Acumen” might be developed over a range of experience that comes with varying position assignments.

In balance, even the greatest leaders may not develop them all.

There are also some great life traits in this list that apply anytime, anywhere.
