"Courage - not complacency is our need today.
Some people are considered to be born leaders. In others, it is said that the characteristics of leadership can be developed and strengthened through skill and experience. But whether these characteristics are natural or developed, great leaders always work to make the best of these traits.
As I read and reflect on the characteristics that are evident in a good leader, I am overwhelmed by the long list of qualities that are vital for effective leadership. Frankly, I am amazed that any of us would ever be so bold as to assume a role of leadership. At the same time, these are character qualities that each of us would do well to exercise in our own lives, leader or not.
