The distinguishing characteristic of a true leader

The endgame of leadership is fostering dignity in the lives of others.

Real leadership is not about superiors and their followers. Leadership is not about the senseless accumulation of wealth and power. Proper leadership concerns itself with what it does with its power — to serves others.

Here are a few characteristics of good leaders:

  1. The endgame of leadership is fostering dignity in the lives of others.

  2. Real leaders want to create and empower other leaders; only the phonies hog it all for themselves.

  3. Real leaders spend more of their energy helping others than helping themselves.

  4. Real leadership is less about leading and more about service.

  5. Real leadership is about giving, and carrying the dreams and hopes of others in your heart every step of the way.

  6. The distinguishing characteristic of a true leader is pure elation in seeing others prosper.
