Ever wonder what makes a leader great? Ever spend time thinking about what the strengths are in your personality or how you might be able to become more like great people around you? Kevin Vogelsang has and he’s written a book to help you answer those questions. In his just released book “10 Powerful Personas,“ Kevin examines key attributes of 10 different qualities found in leaders. I learned a lot from the book and I’d like to share a few of the lessons here:
1) Leaders come from everywhere
One of the most interesting things about Kevin’s book is the balance in people he uses as examples of different leaders. He uses everyone from General Patton to his football coach to his mother as examples of the different powerful personas to great effect. Because of his wide variety of examples, it made me think about who around me, both famous and friend, that exhibited the traits he describes; it was an excellent reminder that you can really learn from anyone around you if you simply raise your awareness and look for it.
I totally agree.
