To find out if you are a true leader, see if you possess these qualities:

  • Leaders start projects by asking "What has to be done?" instead of "What do I need?"
  • Leaders next ask: "What do I have to do to make a real contribution?"  The answer best suits the leader's strengths and the needs of the project.
  • Leaders continually ask: "What are my organisation's purposes and objectives?" and "What qualifies as acceptable performance and adds to the bottom line?"
  • Leaders don't want clones of themselves as employees.  They never ask: "Do I like or dislike this employee?"  But they won't tolerate poor performance.
  • Leaders are not threatened by others who have strengths they lack.
