In a Harvard Business Review Article, May 2017 authors Botelho, Powell, Kincaid, and Wang name four characteristics of highly effective leaders including:effective leaders decide with speed and conviction reliably on their commitments.
Effective leaders deliver. They set realistic goals and align expectations to those goals. They surround themselves with strong colleagues. They hone their own skills. They use accurate metrics to measure accomplishments. They have clear accountability standards. They are willing to reset the course when it becomes necessary.
And faith-based leaders have other crucial characteristics – a humble spirit, a servant’s heart, and a clear sense of their calling.
