The Pattern – of the successful leader

There is a pattern in the fundamental traits of character that can be identified with the successful naval officer. The pattern includes:
  • Selfless desire to serve
  • The ability to accept responsibility for decision making
  • A “sixth sense” for decision making
  • They weren’t “yes men”
  • They read widely
  • They accepted opportunities to work longer hours and face greater challenges than their peers
  • They were concerned and considerate of their people
  • They delegated
  • They try to “fix the problem and not the blame”
