Social Intelligence through Leadership Characteristics
Many leaders lead many companies and nations but all are not capable of leading, as they succumb to the forces surrounding them. ENRON comes to mind in relation to business leaders and the Governor of Illinois is a perfect example of poor leadership within government. Neither really led but were in leadership positions. Both used their powers to abuse and one faltered and the other is on his way to impeachment.

Leaders should never change their style to adapt to the characteristics and needs of their followers. Why? The leaders would become followers if he or she changes his or her style to conform to demand. If President Bush changes his way of running the country every time a protestor did not agree with his style he would not be a leader. If Bill Gates conformed his business thinking every time a consumer did not like a product, he would now be the successful leader he is today.

The characteristics of a leader are simple, self-esteem, screening for opportunity, focus on control, goal orientation, optimism, courage, tolerance and strong internal motivation. (Johannsen 2008)
