LeadershipLeadership is not about personality; it’s about behavior—an observable set of skills and abilities. The “Leadership Challenge” by Jim Kouze and Bary Posner has been a favorite of mine throughout my 39 year career spanning the USMC, Corporate hi-tech, start-ups and small established businesses.

The Leadership Challenge addresses 5 leadership practices:

1) Modeling the way,
2) Inspire a shared vision,
3) Challenge the process,
4) Enable others to act,
5) Encourage the heart.

Whether in uniform, suit or jeans these practices stand the test of time, and yes, a spiritual male can be on top at work.
