People almost always say, “A leader seems confident.” What I’m interested in is what the leader is actually doing that conveys confidence, and why does that matter to the person watching?
When you imagine a leader, how does she make you feel?
Now think: what does she do that makes you feel that way?
Said another way, what do you see or hear that makes you think of this person as a leader? What are the actual behaviors that translate into your mind as “leadership”?
Finally, are there behaviors you see that you might adopt to boost your own qualities of leadership?
