Leadership Gumpism: A Leader is as a Leader Does

  • Does the person live the company’s values & operating principles? Do others see him/her as a role model? Do they treat others with respect? Can they collaborate and build relationships? Are they willing to stand-up for the “right-thing to do”?
  • Does the person deliver results? Does he/she consistently deliver strong results? Find solutions? Accept accountability? Able to organize and prioritize what they say “yes” to? How does the person deliver — by including others or pushing own ideas through? Do they build-on ideas constructively or defensively? Are they willing to make decisions — and rework if necessary?
  • Does the person fuel innovation and continuous improvement? Does he/she see how things could be different and change accordingly? Does this person clear the way for great ideas? Challenge the status quo? Anticipate needs? Think beyond the now and embrace risk? Are driven by curiosity and learning?
  • Does the person provide leadership? Do others want to follow him/her? Can he/she manage talent? Coach others? Eliminate barriers? Engage proactively and collaboratively internally and externally? Are they willing to make strong hires — and foster others to flourish?
