Characteristics of Principle-Centered Leaders

What guides your leadership?

In his book, Principle-Centered Leadership, Stephen Covey identifies eight principles of effective leaders....

"I have isolated eight discernible characteristics of people who are principle-centered leaders.  These traits not only characterize effective leaders, they also serve as signs of progress for all of us."

The eight principles of effective leaders...

  1. they are continually learning
  2. they are service-oriented
  3. they radiate positive energy
  4. they believe in other people
  5. they lead balanced lives
  6. they see life as an adventure
  7. they are synergistic
  8. they exercise for self-renewal
