Effective Leadership

I’ve had the privilege of meeting many important leaders in industry, government and higher education.  Everyone is different—there is no doubt about that!  However, I’ve observed three common leadership characteristics that effective leaders tend to possess.

First, they often have a high level of education and training, which creates a context for their professional activities and the decisions they make.  Second, they are typically trusted decision makers with a proven track record of good judgment and few layers of higher approval are needed for most of the actions they take.  Finally, they understand the organization and respect its processes, managing both up and down while performing their jobs.

Are there leaders like this in your organization?  THOSE are the ones to engage in your sustainability activities. They will help guide your success.
