Becoming a Follow-able Leader

Two key questions to ask employees are: “Who are your best leaders? Why do you want to follow them?”  Research from tens of thousands of leader surveys identifies three hallmarks of a follow-able leader: competence, goodwill, and integrity. Competence refers to job knowledge and skills. Goodwill covers the people side of leadership. And integrity addresses personal morality and ethics. The lesson?  Create your personal leadership value system around the three hallmarks. Then look for ways to add value daily to your employees in these areas.  Are you follow-able?
