Improving the Quality of Leadership

Howdy, all:

I've been thinking about leadership a lot lately: what is it, who can practice it, how it can be improved. The results of my thinking are captured in the attached article. I'd enjoy hearing your feedback, positive or negative, on the piece.

Talk to you soon,
Craig

Craig,

Very, Very well done!! I wanted to take my time and read it thoroughly, so it has taken a couple of days. I'm glad I did.

Thanks

Al, Deuce, Rob, and Taz:

I'm humbled by your gracious feedback. You're very kind. I had been feeling down about my writing recently (the way everybody gets down occasionally for no good reason), but now I feel a little better. Thank you.

Craig

Good article. I know a few leaders from my last company that should have used the leadership tools described in your article. In fact, their lack of leadership ability has recently cost them their job.

An article on leadership? I expected a lot of "fluff". It is not here.

I especially liked the sections explaining where the results of a lack of certain traits (humility, for example) causes problems. Food for thought.

Thanks, Craig C.
