Leadership Corner by Anne Murray

Explaining and understanding the nature of good leadership is probably easier than practicing it. Good leadership requires deep human qualities beyond conventional notions of authority. Effective leadership does not necessarily require great technical or intellectual capacity. These attributes might help, but they are not pivotal. Good leader-ship in the modern age more importantly re quires attitudes and behaviors which characterize and relate to humanity. Good leaders are followed chiefly because people trust and respect them, rather than the skills they possess. Leaderships is about behavior first and skills second.
