LEADERSHIP COMPETENCIES

"Beyond managerial decisions about broad goals and technical or financial issues, leadership means fostering the human spirit: creating relationships and systems that allow other people to get things done in an integrated, supported manner. To this end, we suggest that the following competencies are basic.

       * Building Trust

       * Forging Teams

       * Creating Networks and Alliances

       * Possessing Technological Savvy

       * Being Comfortable with Ambiguity and Uncertainty

       * Being Flexible and Agile

       * Getting Things Done Through Others

       * Reading Organizational Rhythms

       * Communicating Well

       * Creating Strategic Vision

       * Synthesizing Competencies (Lee & King, 2001, pp. 80-82)."
