A brief thought on leadership.
Leaders need to take responsibility for the actions of their people and their team.
A good example of this is Apple Inc.’s Tim Cook who took responsibility last year and is now held responsible for the snafus of the I6 and the problems therein and with its OS. Elsewhere, leaders shy away from any blame.
Forbes identified Top 10 Qualities That Make A Great Leader as follows: Honesty, Ability to Delegate, Communication, Sense of Humour, Confidence, Commitment, Positive attitude, Creativity, Intuition and Ability to Inspire.
However, what is also important is the trust – trust of the people in the leader. If we cannot trust our leaders, then we can never be led.
