Everyone has the ability to influence therefore everyone is a leader. Since the early 50's the Marine Corp has been using 14 leadership traits to influence Marines to become leaders and the same traits that men and women have died for on the battlefield are just as useful to live for in our offices and life. Shane will combine his experience as a Marine and Healthcare Administrator when presenting 14 leadership traits to live by.
"Leadership is intangible, hard to measure, and difficult to describe. Its quality would seem to stem from many factors. But certainly, they must include a measure of inherent ability to control and direct, self-confidence based on expert knowledge, initiative, loyalty, pride and sense of responsibility. Inherent ability cannot be instilled, but that which is latent or dormant can be developed. Other ingredients can be acquired. They are not easily learned. But leaders can be and are made." General C. B. Cates, 19th Commandant of the Marine Corps
Although the title of this session is "Leadership Traits to Live for" many good people have been willing to and have died for these exact same traits. Since 1948 various forms of leadership traits have been used in the military but the 14 we'll discuss today have become the backbone of the Marine Corps since the 50's. Don't worry, this won't be a military history lesson and although I will use some battlefield comparisons this is about the office and how in today's work environment, and dare I say family environment, it is vitally important that leaders actually lead!
