Leaders building competencies and focus on the right things

Leaders are able to tolerate frustration and stress

Leaders deliver results

Leaders are active, expressive, optimistic, and energetic

Leaders have a sense of duty and carry a high standard of excellence

Leaders are thick-skinned

Leaders are practical, logical, and to-the-point, yet flexible and open to change

  1. Because of Trump I try my best to avoid superlatives, but that said, your post is truly remarkable and should be shared with state and national news media outlets. The public needs to hear your words and face up to how Trump’s incompetent and abusive leadership style compares to what they expect from management in their places of employment.

  2. I probably have shared this with you before, but I am a registered Republican. And I love to play devil’s advocate on most things political. But as much as I love to marinate on politics, I have been effectively neutered since November. I got nothing.

    Me? No likee this guy.

    • Janee,
      Welcome first-time commenter … and sorry for the delay. No, I have not heard of the Platinum Rule, so thanks for the introduction. I can’t figure out the intent of you comment as a positive or negative to neither President Trump or this post.
