This was a great article. I like how it simply explained the characteristics in a way that would make it easy to assess the leadership in our individual credit unions in order to make adjustments.

Great leadership article. Persistance and etihics are too of the skills most important to me. The study cited also rates those traits high.

I immediately caught the references as being from the book, Good to Great. It''s remarkable that Jim Collins and his team of researchers were dead set on not using management style and interpersonal aspects of the leader as the reason for organizational growth and stamina. Well, guess what. They found that the leader of the organization - regardless of personality type, was the driving force of the organization (whether good or great or declining). The organizations with egoless management and a superior successor - scored high. Go get the book - it''s definitely worth the time to read.

I agree with these four, although there are personality issues woven into the success of people and not everyone has a personality or can learn to do these things, so there is a natural component that predisposes a person to have these strengths--while admitting that anyone can learn these skills, some will do this much more easily and consequently more often. The key missing ingredient in my view is a future-focused set of idea of facilitating the development of future talent. To some extent it is partially included in some of the four, but I think it is important enough to warrent a fifth leg on the stool.

As a current consultant and former credit union executive I agree with many of the points in yout article. I have to tell you I see a whole lot more level three in evidence then level four or five. Perhaps we should be talking to board''s not CU executives.
