Marks of a True Influence Leader

Like this description from Jeremie Kubicek...gonna be thinking lots about leadership in the next months as we hire student leaders for the 2014-15 school year and reframe leadership training curriculum and experiences across several platforms at CU...

A True Influence Leader:
  • Leads with vision;
  • Leads from the head and the heart;
  • Practices humility and service to others (let’s go of status and self-preservation);
  • Influences rather than pushes or demands;
  • Invests in the success of others first;
  • Rises above unethical practices, pressure, and petty politics;
  • Attracts a diverse and dedicated team of future leaders;
  • Delivers more than expected;
  • Wields the tools of forgiveness, gratitude, and laughter;
  • Reaches out to make the last first.

I like this quote...... Something I have been thinking about a lot recently, is the importance of understanding what it means to be a good follower also. The best leaders I believe are those who first knew how to be good followers.
