The Characteristics of an Effective Leader

Integrate the Key Character Qualities Necessary to Become an Effective Leader into Your Personal Leadership Style

In this workshop we will address the question ‘What are the characteristics of an effective leader?’ You will think about people (both alive and no longer living) whom you consider to be leaders, and the qualities of their character that cause others to relate to them as leaders. GLI will share the results of its 18+ years of research into what characterizes effective leadership, including its review of surveys of tens of thousands of employees around the world who have been asked what they look for in their leaders.

GLI will also share its Three Spheres of Effective Leadership – a holistic leadership model that distills the three most important leadership qualities and how you can leverage their interactive nature and exercise them daily to become an effective leader.
