Our editorial today outlined some leadership qualities voters might look for as the general election campaigns commence.
Candidates with leadership potential articulate a clear vision. They draw disparate people together and move with them toward that vision. They have evidence of what they stand for based on their accomplishments. But they are not empty boasters, and they back up accomplishment claims with specific, verifiable details.
The best leaders understand that many people – and trends – contribute to big community successes…Effective leaders can also sublimate their egos and give credit to other people or to civic forces larger than just one individual.
What qualities would you add?
