Just my thoughts - Leadership

I’ve been doing a lot of reading and thinking about leadership, specially around the idea of “leadership potential”, for a small side project that I'm working on.

So how do you recognize a potential leader in your organization? In most cases I think it’s easy. Here are some of my thoughts …

A leader seeks support … not permission
A leader presents ideas as well prepared proposals … not unfinished thoughts
A leader champions projects … they don't just plan

What are your thoughts? How do you recognize leadership potential?

Leaders are open and enjoy helping others succeed and lead. They are often fearless yet cautious at the same time. Patience, persistence and timing go hand in hand in most environments.
One of my favorite reads on leadership is the "Tao of Leadership," by John Heider.
