Leadership competencies are the qualities most strongly associated with advanced levels of leadership and desired outcomes in an organization.The primary benefit of leadership competencies is that they provide an easily shared and understood view of leadership that can be used in a wide variety of ways to build human capital and drive business outcomes.
Here are my 5:
Activating, inspiring, nurturing, empowering and developing others.
Meeting/connecting with constituencies (colleagues, employees, customers, supply chain and business partners); building trust, respect.
Communicating clearly and consistently (listening, speaking, writing, presenting, etc.).
Demonstrating value; delivering quantifiable results.
Identifying and sourcing needs, opportunities and resources (talent, alliances and funds); appropriately delegating.
