Qualities of a Transformational Leader

"There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, more uncertain in its success than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things."Inscription From Machiavelli's Tomb

I've developed the following list of qualities needed by a leader who is trying to transform their organization.

Focus on what's possible, rather than on what is likely.

Seek new ways of working, new ways of getting things done

Seek opportunities in the face of risk

Value effectiveness over efficiency

Don't react to circumstances, instead seek to shape and create new ones.

Emphasize individual responsibility for measurable results

Question old assumptions, because the are old assumptions

Reward success with customized incentives.

Use self interest to inspire action, then transcend self-interest.

Have a healthy disrespect for the prevailing politics.
