Drives Results: Exceptional Leaders are people who get things done. In a world full of leaders who talk a good game and present themselves with polish, the right leader will be someone who allows their accomplishments to do the talking. Exceptional Leaders will have a measurable track record of success.
Develops People: The best leaders inspire and improve the lives and performance of those around them. Exceptional Leaders invest in their teams, providing coaching, mentoring and guidance while also holding them to a high standard of performance.
Learns Relentlessly: In the 21st century, learning is more valuable than knowing as the world changes at a progressively faster pace. Exceptional Leaders have proof points in their life and their career that demonstrate curiosity and efforts to expand their knowledge base as often as possible. In addition, they are able to synthesize the information into their understanding of the world and its systems – they are open to changing their opinions and perspectives based on what they are learning.
There was a time when it was only about the resume when searching for a leader. Y Scouts has literally redefined executive recruiting to assure we have the right leader driving the bus.Ann Rhoades, Founder/CEO, People Ink & Former Chief People Officer, Southwest Airlines
