Seven Things Leaders Share
Seth Godin @ the Catalyst Conference :: October 2008

  1. They challenge their tribe.  They don’t settle for what is now.
     
  2. They intentionally create a culture for their tribe.  
     
  3. They have curiosity.  They are always searching and probing for what is next, what is coming down the pike.

  4. They have charisma.  You don’t become a leader because you have charisma.  You get charisma because you’re a leader.

  5. They communicate.  They figure out how and when and where to talk with the tribe – not to or at them.

  6. They connect tribe members to each other.  
     
  7. They commit to the well-being of the tribe.  Even if it is not always comfortable for them or for the tribe.
