What Are the 4 Factors That Constitute The Foundation for Being a Leader?
“We argue here that the four factors we identify as constituting the foundation for being a leader and the effective exercise of leadership can also be seen as the foundations not only for great leadership, but also for a high quality personal life and an extraordinary organization. One can see this as a “value free” approach to values because:
1) integrity as we define it (being whole and complete) is a purely positive proposition;
2) authenticity is also a purely positive proposition (being and acting consistent with who you hold yourself out to be for others and who you hold yourself to be for yourself),;
3) being committed to something bigger than oneself is also a purely positive proposition (that says nothing about what that commitment should be other than it be bigger than oneself); and
4) being cause in the matter as a declaration of the stand you take for yourself regarding everything in your life is also a purely positive proposition”
