The article “How to Build a Great Team” by Charlie Feld, provides a great overview of what it takes to build a great team. Charlie found that the “secret sauce” of great leaders are:
- Character: Doing the Right Thing
- Leadership Development: The Most Important Task
- Passion: The Organizational Energy Level
- Influence and Persuasion: Better than Power
BOTTOMLINE: Leaders have the responsibility of developing people and building teams. How are you doing? What percentage of your time do you spend developing the people around you?
(Tip of the hat to George Ambler at The Practice of Leadership for this one!)
