Recently I had to watch a video of a former Professor talk about leadership. He said that a leader possessed the following characteristics:

1. Exhibits self-awareness
2. Embraces ambiguity
3. Exhibits a sense of humor
4. Takes risks
5. Shows respect to others
6. Provides a vision

What do you think of the list? Would you take any away? Would you add to it? If someone asked how they could improve their leadership how would you direct them?
