Leadership | KCUR


Nov 5, 2012

What are the characteristics of a leader?  Is it a constant, even temperament?  The ability to command respect?  Possessing an unwavering state of courage?

On Monday's Central Standard, Dr. Bruce Liese joins Jabulani Leffall for an in-depth look at what it takes to be an effective leader.  They examine the specific qualities we seek and admire in our leaders and whether the traits that work well for one type of leadership position, work just as well in another.

Let us know what combination of attributes would make you follow someone.  Call 816. 235.2888 during the show or shoot us an e-mail at centralstandard@kcur.org.
