Times of crisis separate good from bad leaders. Leaders who give in to the temptation to abdicate and run away from their responsibilities fail the people depending on them. Good leaders do the opposite – they stay the course through adversity to continue to guide and provide for others. In this episode, we explore several types of leadership and begin to define the qualities of a good leader. In Peter’s view, good leaders accept and value their own humanity. They are transparent, giving the people around them permission to also be human and learn from the leader’s wisdom and experience. Good leaders recognize and develop the talents of those on their team, helping them become the best they can be. Good leaders also hold on to courage and hope, deal decisively with their negative emotions, are willing to sacrifice for those depending on them, and take responsibility in their roles without excuses. In our next episode, we’ll cover other qualities of a good leader, including being innovative and creative.
