Traits as a leadership model is a bit passe but…
I was talking to a business owner recently. She wants to improve her leadership skills. She asked a bit of a googly: “What inspired you about people who led you?”
All the great managers I have been lucky enough to work for flashed in front of my eyes and I said, without thinking too much about it:
“They were all passionate about what we did. They were all good at what they did. They were all funny. They all let me know that my contribution was important and that I was doing a good job.”
So perhaps behaviours rather than traits. Nothing very complicated.
What do all the good bosses you’ve worked for have in common?
