What makes a great leader?

Endaba Group

Effective leadership and leadership development, which is often neglected, is critical to the success of any business. We’re frequently asked what makes a great leader?

Based on years of research and leadership development and coaching programmes, we also know that a particular blend of behaviours, personality traits and skills create great leaders:

Experience has shown us that what distinguishes great leadership is often different for each organisation. There are varying experiences and perspectives on the approach and qualities necessary for effective leadership.

“Not all situations require the same type of leadership style. Great leaders adapt to their surroundings and empower their team. Great leaders should be strong and visionary. They need to have a solid belief in their ideas; you can’t expect your team to see you as a leader unless you’re strong in your conviction. It’s about authenticity and displaying the right behaviours and consistently demonstrating these every single day.” Lynette Deutsch, CEO of The Endaba Group
