12 Principles of Great Leadership: Quotes and Tips About Leadership Styles

Now is the time to polish your leadership style. This leadership principles report can change your life, and it’s FREE!

Dear Leader,

Good leadership qualities can be developed no matter what your position is in life.

At Leadercast, we believe leadership is not reserved for those with a “C” in their title. We’re here to create better leaders in our communities, businesses, organizations and homes across the world. If you think that might include you, please read on.

Here’s some food for thought you may never have considered: 

  • Bestselling author and communicator Andy Stanley reminds us that the best leaders don’t feel the need to be the smartest person in the room. Instead, they’re willing to be the dumbest – and to learn from the smarter people.
  • Another leadership expert, John C. Maxwell, notes leaders can have weaknesses just like anyone else. The trick is to divide those weaknesses by delegating them. “A leader is like a quarterback,” Maxwell says. “He doesn’t get paid to run the ball. He gets paid to put the ball into the right hands.”
  • Former NFL Coach Tony Dungy reveals that over his seven years with the Indianapolis Colts the team that won the Superbowl was not only not his best team, but was in fact fifth or sixth in terms of talent. “But that was the closest team, the team that did all the right things together,” Dungy says. Doing the little things right as part of a team is as much a good leadership quality as any of the flashier leadership styles you might envision.

All of the above … that’s the kind of leadership we want you to learn and exercise – no matter what your job title. And to help you to do it, we’ve written a complete guidebook to developing the most effective leadership styles – and we’ve made it absolutely FREE to get it into the hands of as many potential leaders as possible.

Are you familiar with the five leadership values that every great leader must share? The first, as you’ll discover when you read our leadership qualities list, is personal integrity. Honesty and personal integrity are qualities that cause individuals to identify with, and follow, a great leader.

You’ll certainly want to read the story related in this guide by Gen. Hugh Shelton about how an otherwise ordinary incident in which he displayed his personal integrity impacted those who heard of it. Most importantly: As the general notes, by maintaining his own integrity, he prevented future shortcuts or rule-bending by others in his command because they would follow his lead.

That’s the kind of lesson you get throughout this FREE guide – all of it in clear, straightforward language, and all of it a fascinating read.

But you also get more than just real-life examples of the values on our leadership qualities list. For every leadership trait we deliver, you also get tips for making that quality part of your personal behavior. Here’s an example from the guide on how to strengthen your personal of integrity:

Ask yourself these two questions to ensure that you’re appropriately prioritizing integrity.

  • Do you value integrity more than anything else in your personal leadership?
  • What are the things you absolutely would not compromise?

For every question you ask – and answer – for yourself, you’ll find you’ve exponentially increased your value as a leader, and your prospects in your career and in your personal life.

That’s why each of the five fundamental leadership values delivers a real-life example of that value at work, along with tips for empowering yourself with those values. When studying authenticity, you’ll learn about how vulnerability with your team allows you to maintain it. Then you’ll be asked to list a recent example of when you could have been vulnerable with your team or a team member, but instead chose to play it safe.

For another leadership trait, you’ll be instructed to ask yourself what is currently preventing you from achieving excellence.

Read this free guide right now to learn more about these and discover the two other values on our leadership qualities list. It’s an invaluable, straightforward tool for teaching yourself to become a better leader.

Behaviors that build on values to create seven more leadership styles

In addition to the five leadership values this guide teaches, it also discusses seven leadership behaviors that are built upon those values. These behaviors start with simplicity: the ability to bring clarity to the complex.

As leadership responsibilities grow, you’ll find yourself increasingly surrounded by complications. The multitude of responsibilities increase, the quantity of decisions skyrockets and alternatives seem endless. Yet your brain can only truly focus on one thing at a time. Great leaders help create the focused attention necessary in others to collectively move toward a common goal.

In fact, when you read this guide, you’ll find out how the legendary Steve Jobs created simplicity and clarity for Apple when it had started to lose its way – simplicity which, you’ll find, the rest of us as Apple consumers take for granted even today.

Like other great leaders, Jobs focused on three key elements that are critical to ensuring that the message and guidance he was providing to his followers would be easily understood and acted upon:

  • He focused on what was relevant.
  • He inhibited everything else.
  • He created a working memory. 

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Some of the other behaviors included in this leadership qualities list include creativity, bravery and insight. And each of the leadership characteristics included in this guide comes with personal examples, inspirational quotes and exercises for making these leadership traits a natural part of your character.
