From Real Power by Janet O. Hagberg:
Follow a vision, a purpose, an ideal.
Allow for win-win, not just win-lose.
Empower others, not themselves.
Have balance in life, between work community, and family.
Can be vulnerable and reflective.
Treat women, men, and minorities as equals.
Ask why, not how.
Have a spiritual connection to power within and beyond.
See the bottom line as a means to a larger organizational purpose, not an end in itself.
Live with integrity as their hallmark.
I recommend Hagberg’s book as an interesting and powerful guide to one’s growth as a leader.
