Effective leaders can come in many forms but to truly make things happen in their organizations and have their colleagues follow them they must embrace these characteristics:
Honesty/transparency: Effective leaders need to be honest/transparent. Leaders who aren’t will lose credibility in their organization. People want to know that you will do what you say. No one likes surprises.
Be a Problem Solver: Accomplished leaders must be gifted problem solvers. They need to be able to identify the actual problem that needs to be solved and sort through the many options. They can accomplish this by being solutions-oriented.
Be forward-thinking and do not be afraid to think outside of the box. 21st-century problems need innovative solutions.
Finally, effective leaders need to be able to inspire their people. A person cannot be an effective leader if others aren’t inspired to follow!
