Qualities of a Wise Leader
by Musthafa Ebadi on August 19th, 2014

I was having a quick conversation with someone the other day about leadership and they asked me what I consider the top 5 important attributes of a leader. I told her that over the years I have jotted down 7 attributes that I believe makes a person a wise and special leader.

She agreed with all the 7 so I thought to share the below with you:
Vision - The wise leader understands the value of a big picture, and therefore keeps an eye on something worth attaining. He is able to articulate that vision very clearly and concisely to his/her team.
People - The wise leader knows that people are the key to any organizational or team success and works to develop and empower them.
 Strategy - The wise leader realizes that no dream becomes reality without proper planning, execution, and always having a plan B.
Timing – The wise leader using sound judgment and is patient, knowing there is a right time to act and there are times to wait.
Morality - The wise leader places a high value in character and integrity, knowing that ultimately everything rises and falls on these qualities.
Initiative - The wise leader is risk-taking and intentionally encourages innovation, change and forward progress.
Diligence - The wise leader continues in spite of adversity, knowing that reaching a goal is worth the struggles to get there.
Feel free to agree, disagree, or share your perspective using the comment section of this post.

Thanks for reading!
