Three Characteristics of a Strong Leader
People are drawn to strong leaders. History is filled with examples of strong leaders who inspired others to follow them. It was Winston Churchill who inspired a battered nation to never, ever give up. It was Abraham Lincoln who kept a fractured nation from splitting apart. It was the Wright brothers who flew an airplane without lessons and a pilot license leading others to fly into the deep recesses of space.

Leadership, at times is a very lonely place to be. This is especially true for the strong leader. It was former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger who said, “A leader does not deserve the name unless he is willing occasionally to stand alone.”

Sometimes, the great leaders have to be alone: Alone with their thoughts, alone with their plans to set the right course. And for men and women of faith, time alone with their God.

Here is the take-a-way for the leader who desires to be a strong leader. How is it done? What does a leader have to do in order to grow and become a strong leader that others will follow? Here are a few suggestions:

1.     Lead with passion: Convictions will take you further than convenience.

2.     Lead with humility: Leadership is a stewardship and must never be taken for granted or abused.

3.     Lead with the end in mind: Great leaders make great decisions that impact great causes that result in a great legacy.
You’ve read my perspective. Now, I’d love to hear yours. What are you thinking? What kind of impact can a strong leader make in your organization?
If you need help working through the process consider using the resources at Coates and Associates, Inc. We would consider it an honor to visit with you about developing a process forward.

With havin so much content do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright infringement? My website has a lot of exclusive content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off? I'd certainly appreciate it.

Strong leaders are important to have the right direction for any country. If you have a person in a wrong direction then he can destroy generations. So good selection of a good leader is really important.
