Who Makes a Good Leader

Doug Lawrence

Far too often I hear from the many people that I have worked with over the years the daunting question of who makes a good leader. The question is always asked, “is that a quality that you are born with, or is that something that can be learned?” What do you think?

I believe that learned behavior plays a strong part in answering this question, but I also believe that not all of us are cut out to be leaders. We may be a manager, or a boss, but we are not leaders.

I found this quote from Russell H. Ewing and I feel that it more than adequately paints a good picture of what we all need to aspire to if we want to be considered a leader. What do you think?

“A Boss creates fear, a leader confidence. A boss fixes blame, a leader corrects mistakes. A boss knows all, a leader asks questions. A boss makes work drudgery, a leader makes it interesting. A boss is interested in himself or herself, a leader is interested in the group.”  Russell H. Ewing
