Things on my mind: Leadership

An effective leader is:

1.  Able: demonstrates competence, expertise, experience, and capability in getting the desired results accomplished

2.  Believable: walks the talk of a core set of values, demonstrates honesty, and uses fair, equitable practices

3.  Connected: interacts with staff, communicates and shares relevant information, provides praise, and gives recognition

4.  Dependable: is accountable, takes responsibility for own actions, and consistently follows up

Without these four attribute, a leader is just a boss with authority instead of inspiration.
