The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader

If you haven't read John Maxwell's The 21 Indispensable Qualities of a Leader : Becoming the Person Others Will Want to Follow, I highly recommend it.

Here are the 21 qualities discussed in his book:

4. Communication: Without It You Travel Alone

6. Courage: One Person with Courage Is a Majority

8. Focus: The Sharper It Is, the Sharper You Are
9. Generosity: Your Candle Loses Nothing When It Lights Another
10. Initiative: You Won't Leave Home Without It
11. Listening: To Connect With Their Hearts, Use Your Ears
12. Passion: Take This Life and Love It
13. Positive Attitude: If You Believe You Can, You Can
14. Problem Solving: You Can't Let Your Problems Be a Problem
15. Relationships: If You Get Along, They'll Go Along
16. Responsibility: If You Won't Carry the Ball, You Can't Lead the Team
