Psycho-Path

The best leaders I know are students of psychology.  Whether parents, teachers, coaches, managers, or presidents, the most effective leaders have (either intuitively or by training or both) an understanding of how best to move people (themselves included).

These insightful influencers understand that the path to high performance is initiated, grounded, and habituated in the mind (in the psychology behind the behavior).

Common traits of these effective leaders?

  • Persistent and pervasive respectfulness
  • Intense awareness of right behavior/actions
  • Consistent and authentic praise for right behavior/actions
  • Intentional incentivization of right behavior/actions
  • Relentless focus on development
And what about the worst kind of leaders?  Psychopathic - pretty much the opposite of that list above.
