How Do the Best Leaders Inspire Excellence and Make Things Happen?

This is the third part of a five-part series that started two posts ago.  If you want to really understand all of this, go back and read the first two parts.

 Part 3:  Drive to Execute Activation


Leaders with Courage:

  • Confront difficult issues head-on.
  • Come on stronger when people resist them.
  • Are aggressive—sometimes intimidating—through the force of their personality.
  • Tend to reach with emotions when hitting obstacles.

Courage is the capacity to increase determination in the face of resistance—to relish challenges in one’s work.


Leaders with Activator:

  • Are persuasive—sell their ideas to associates.
  • Are biased to action; they make things happen.
  • Can get people to follow them.
  • Make decisions and move forward.

Activator is the drive to make things happen—to be proactive.

Understanding what leadership talents and traits you have . . . and the ones that your team members and your leader have . . . will help you in getting results and understanding what makes you and others tick.

 Next post I will cover the leadership talents that the best leaders have when it comes to relationships.   . . . Lee

  1. Courage I agree is a wonderful trait some people walk to the edge of a cliff and look down others run and jump!

  2. Lee, great insight as usual. I am reminded of one of my favorite quotes. “Courage does not always roar, sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying I will try again tomorrow”- Thanks , Peter
