What makes a good leader? Ten leaders, ten key virtues This readable distillation of the core common features of successful leaders shows how an individual's character, and especially their virtue, is the defining factor. Without these ten vital virtues, leadership becomes "misleadership." The authors, both renowned business ethicists, combine theory with fascinating biographical detail on exemplary leaders such as Abraham Lincoln, Winston Churchill, and Oprah Winfrey. The result is an accessible text on the ethics of leadership which, unlike many publications that claim to reveal the secrets of success as a leader, is informed by a wealth of exceptional academic experience.

Most leadership models start with trying to identify what great leaders do. Instead, leadership expert Emmanuel Gobillot answers the question "what do great followers want?"He identifies the key elements of leadership success and the proven pathways to developing the charisma we all seek in the leaders who truly inspire and motivate. Leaders who understand the needs of their followers demonstrate that they share the values of their team, have the character to act in line with these values and the ability to deliver on them. The best leaders have high EQ (Emotional Intelligence) capabilities and can respond to their followers' needs in an authentic way.This book breaks down the all-important "charisma" into eight critical elements, explaining how each component works and offering practical development steps for each. Getting these steps right will transform good leaders into magnets for great followers.
