CropVillage update for December 31, 2011, What Leadership Traits Do You Need?

Got some ideas to share?

2011 was an interesting year, with new normals surfacing. Hopefully 2012 will bring some consistency back into the equation. Leadership is anticipating, and preparing for, those black swan issues that we face. In this special episode, Ian Davis, retired McKinsey & Company director, shares his thoughts on leadership. He believes that successful leaders share five traits, independent of their rank in their organization. The five traits? Having a direction, initiative (starting things), sustaining momentum, motivate people, and leading by example.
