An elderly widow. Several CEOs. A writer. Head of an avalanche mitigation team. Government officials.
I spoke to many different kinds of leaders for The Making Magnificence Project® (new interviews coming soon, stay tuned!). Despite their varied paths, they shared 8 key traits. Factors that propelled them. Below are 3:
- Passion Married to a High Tolerance for Uncertainty
Being deeply passionate about what they were pursuing was crucial. But the capacity for tolerating the discomfort of pursuing the path? Essential.
- The Lens We Look Through: Framing and Re-Framing
All of these leaders confronted loss, disappointment, and failure. How they viewed their setbacks was far more important than being set back. It was the ball game.
- Questing for Self-Mastery
No matter how accomplished, all of these leaders were learners. They kept showing up curious and wanting to improve.
For more on questing for your own Magnificent Leadership®, you can reach me at: firstname.lastname@example.org My next openings are in late July. I work with talented and successful senior leaders who want to accelerate their performance and make a lasting impact.
Slated for promotion? One of the most common reasons I’m invited to work with senior executives is because they’re preparing for elevated leadership roles. To request a copy of my paper on leading in a new role and the 5 domains for success, you can email me at: email@example.com
