Last week I attended the Global Leadership Summit (GLS) in Chicago. It was an incredibly enriching time. At the Summit they launched a Smart Phone App resource for leaders called GLSNext. It has hundreds of topical brief videos on a variety of leadership subjects.
When I opened it for the first time, the feature video was from Sam Adeyemi where he shares what he specifically looks for when investing in younger leaders (1 min 57 sec). He names two important things: Character and the willingness to Take Responsibility. Its a good brief reminder of how character truly is the foundation for the virtuous leader.
