This evening, as a part of my Ethics in Business course that I’m taking en route to an MBA at Northern Kentucky University, Mr. John Eckberg a former business reporter for the Cincinnati Enquirer and author of  “The Success Effect” spoke to our class about the various interviews he’s conducted throughout his years as a reporter. The myriad relationships he’s built over the years have given him an interesting perspective about leadership and the qualities that leaders in business must have to become successful.

Below is an acronym that he developed to highlight the characteristics he found to be essentials for leaders:

  • G – grit
  • O – observant

  • F – fun
  • I – intuitive
  • G – gracious
  • U – unsatisfied
  • R – resolve
  • E – envisioning

What qualities do you think leaders must display?
