Creativity in making good decisions requires having a clear mind.

I have recently taken a managerial position in the hospital where I work. I have worked for the organization for 18 years, but never as a manager.

I recently retired from a career in law enforcement and had the dishonor to work for an anministrative team who would be hard pressed to manage a lemonade stand. These individuals focused on “self” rather than the needs of the department. Due to poor management skills, there was no synergy, low morale, and a department divided against itself. This particular department was/is plagued with nepitism, favoritism, cronyism, and yes, racism. Unfortunately these individuals cast each other in their administrative positions, and wouldn’t have the brain power to read, muchless master your leadership traits. Your leadership traits are inspiring and I hope to use them in my future endeavors.


Good Leadership: Has your team got what it takes?

I support these leadership traits and practice this in my daily work and when with friends and associates; I wish our local government officials and mayors would do the same; so there can be transparency and action that really improves the quality of life for all.

So much fake leadership out there. It makes me sick, many of us as students were taught code of standards and then we go out to the real world, get jobs and meet these so called leaders who have no code of ethics; nor real leadership traits to inspire us. That is so sad, it just proves how people breed corruption. Greed over being genuine…too much personal wealth building leads to sick power and no community wealth building at all. Where is the leadership on this?

I offer nine one of which is the ability to share leadership depending on the issue.
